Trap Drum Samples – Divided Souls – Soul Trap Drum Kit

Divided Souls - Soul Trap copy

Download Here: Divided Souls – Soul Trap Drum Kit

Divided Souls Entertainment delivers Soul Trap, a welcomed compliment to the 12 Bit Soul catalog and their take on the world of sounds in trap music with a focus on rumbling basses and a further continuation of the foundation built by the legendary Roland TR-808 drum machine. This sound kit packs potency, leaving the producer with core elements needed to get the creativity stirring. The kicks thump, the snares punch, and the stabs provide a foundation for a track to be built from the ground up or stand alone on the strength of the sonic quality. No filler, just the necessary, essential drum sounds you need to go in and make a track that knocks.

The idea of the “trap” has, like so many other aspects within our culture, expanded from street terminology and morphed into an entire sub-genre within Hip Hop. This appropriation is nothing new but a representation of something gritty and hardcore, the underbelly of society. It’s also a place where trunks have been rattling for years with heavy low-end and frenetic percussion courtesy of the classic 808 sound that has become synonymous within the genre. With this latest addition, Divided Souls Entertainment continues to create sounds with an uncompromising edge, just like the trap itself.

Sounds included:

  • Kicks/808 Subs – 27
  • Snares – 27
  • Claps/Percussion/EFX – 35
  • Stabs – 20

Kingsway Music Library – Colors (Vinyl LP) // Limited Pressing

“Buying old records is a habit.” – Diamond D

For record collectors and simply those individuals who appreciate the vinyl experience, the onset of the digital age has been a mixed offering. On one hand, MP3s have made analog and once unportable music now accessible in any setting with a spectrum of hand-held devices to play those hard-to-find gems. As with any positive attribute in the frenetic tech era, there is some unavoidable downside as well. The ease in which music can be heard has cheapened the overall consumer experience as an artist’s blood, sweat, tears, and years have been reduced to an ephemeral shelf life. Record stores and music sections in major retailers are vanishing as downloads- illegal or otherwise- have gobbled up a large chunk of the physical pie. What is the connoisseur, collector, and crate digger to do with the deck seemingly stacked against them?

The Drum Broker and Kingsway Music have partnered up to deliver Kingsway Music Library’s first physical release entitled Colors. Frank Dukes, the mastermind behind this talented group of musicians, has been helping compose original songs for producers like Boi-1da, Jake One, Cardiak, Illmind, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Don Cannon, and many more. One example of this is Drake’s “0-100/The Catch Up” as it takes its core elements directly from a Kingsway Music composition. Dukes comes from digging in the crates and spending hours and hours finding “breaks” and samples -a task that can be equal parts euphoria as well as frustrating. With the sweat equity invested, he has a substantial understanding of song composition and structure, making potent material from start to finish.

With Colors, each one of the 15 tracks is, in essence, a “break,” with the long-player sounding like a master recording of usable, license-free samples and top-notch instrumental music. Irrespective of your place on the vinyl continuum, this release appeals to producers, DJs, composers, and fans of good music who want hear quality art in a physical format. Kingsway Music meets the needs of the sample-based sonic craftsman looking for their next creation and the passionate listener who understands that good music is best spun at 33 and a third.
