Drops in the Bronx Volume 2 comprises a stellar range of hip hop and funk beats, with a variety of influences and playing styles. Starting with Sugar Hill Gang early rap and funk grooves, you can then sift through Early 80s soul grooves and Block party rap classics. Four to the floor disco grooves, fat hip-hop and funk beats, funky old school rap beats, slack and funky back beats and heavy hip hop grooves offer plenty more to experiment with.
You can then make the most of a variety of tones and timbres: shuffled hats and claps to chunky hats and fat snares; short snare fills to big tom fills; accented hi hats and syncopated kick patterns to breakdowns and 70s tom sounds. There is a whole barrel of sounds for you to explore to find what suits your track the best.
