MusicRadar has announced the release of 345 free Afrobeat loops, a collection previously featured on Future Music magazine’s cover DVD.
Hailing from Africa in the ’70s and christened by Fela Kuti, the infectious sound of Afrobeat combines elements of jazz, funk and traditional Nigerian music.
The likes of Talking Heads, TV On The Radio and Vampire Weekend have all been influenced by the genre, and now it’s making its presence felt on SampleRadar.
The samples are split into three construction kits of different tempi (105, 110 and 118bpm). These contain drum, bass, guitar, keyboard and percussion loops.All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice.
All sounds are 100% royalty free.
