Dub isn't generally perceived to be the most joyous of genres, so it should come as no surprise that this week's SampleRadar collection has a dark and brooding theme.

So, if you're already in full 'bah humbug' mode and want to get your mood on, go right ahead.

What you need to know

The deep dub samples are divided into four folders containing atmospheres, beats, FX and bass 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 deep dub samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
