True Sam­ples – Tape Hip-Hop £16 http://sounds.beat­port.com If you grew up on the home­grown rap scene of ar­eas like Mem­phis, Ten­nessee, you’ll prob­a­bly have a shelf-wide col­lec­tion of dirty south mix­tapes. Be­hind their gar­ish cov­ers, DJs and pro­duc­ers filled two sides of a C90 tape with the hottest joints that were vi­brat­ing the streets. Each time the mixes were copied and shared a layer of crusty lo-fi son­ics would blur the edges of the beats. It’s with that ef­fect in mind that True Sam­ples in-house pro­ducer SVA has gone into the studio to muddy up his sick, skit­ter­ing trap beats and 808 basses. The fruits of his labour are 10 con­struc­tion kits for you to chop and screw as you see fit. The re­sults sound crunchy and au­then­tic, as you’d hope. Per­fect for adding some crunk to your trunk.
