Big Fish Audio Big Beat 2: Nu Skool Breaks
If you're expecting a cutting-edge collection of New Skool Breaks style beats then look elsewhere – Big Beat 2 sounds very old-school indeed.
In fact, the mid-tempo loops on the disc sound very much like chopped up versions of classic drum breaks.
James Brown's influence is all over Big Beat 2 and if you have a few drum sample CDs from the first half of the 90s, the chances are you've got many of these beats already (or something very similar).
There are a few drum kits and synth riffs to round off the package, but all in all, this feels like a very dated selection indeed.
Good if you never bought a drum sample CD in the early 90s.
But not if you did.
An old skool selection in every sense and rather stale with it.
