Big Fish Audio Complete Hip Hop

This urban sample pack wears its influences on its sleeve

Yet another collection from Big Fish Audio – we're in hip-hop territory this time.

Like its R&B sibling, Complete Hip Hop features construction kits and once again you get the full mixes and component parts.

These can all be timestretched and pitched effortlessly using Logic or GarageBand.

There are 59 folders full of samples. In terms of style, these range from gritty and retro through to the cleaner sound that typifies a great deal of today's hip-hop.

There are several shameless Gorillaz and Gang Starr rip-offs, but that's no bad thing. This is a fine, well-produced set.
