Since Aerosmith and Run DMC kicked down the barrier between rock and hip-hop we've seen countless acts attempting to blend these seemingly distinct genres together.
Now SampleRadar is having a stab at it too, and you can enjoy the fruits of our labours.
What you need to know
The hip-rock samples are divided into five folders: Beats, Distorted BonusBeats, Drum Hits, Hits FX and Loops.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The hip-rock samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
Distorted beat 115bpm
