SampleRadar's collection this week takes inspiration from all over the place. The influence of psychedelia, rock and even electronica can all be felt at times, as the sound veers from gritty to mellow.

If you're still not sure what to expect, our advice is just to dive in and enjoy the trip.

What you need to know

The samples are supplied in five tempo-labelled construction kits, each of which contains drum, bass, guitar, keyboard and other samples.

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 filthy hippy samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
