"...an unashamed, unfussy and unpretentious collection of some of the most bangin´ house beats I´ve heard in quite a while" - Sound on Sound
"There are more 4/4 loops here than you could possibly imagine .....and the quality of the loops is damn high" - Future Music UK

This download pack features 760 different two-bar loops, each set into tempo groups of 120, 125, 130, 135 and 140bpm. True to house music tastes, most waver around the 130bpm mark, and within nearly all of the loops you get a lot of rhythmic and textural diversity.
DH v2.0 also provides a good cross-section of house music sub-genres including Speed Garage, Disco House and Authentic House. There are even a few hints at drum & bass styles, as well as hardcore, and pure techno influences.
You will find that the producer has a keen set of ears for picking the right kind of kick drums and snares, and fills up the bits in between with just the right amount of percussion to keep things shunting along without ever sounding cluttered. Effects-wise, DH v2.0 has made most of the decisions for you, adding all the right amounts of reverb and compression and thus making for easy sampling and instant beat gratification.
Also included is a ´single-hits´ section, which offers many of the individual drum and percussion sounds used in the preceding tracks and includes a large number of interesting and highly usable acoustic drum kit samples. Every loop has been finely tuned and edited to exact BPM´s, making it even easier to use samples in your tunes. Tough and bumpy, smooth and slamming and mixed on a vintage Neve console, these loops are of the very highest quality.
This library was produced by J. R. Beaumier (aka J. R. Exley), an extremely experienced composer and producer who has been working in the dance music area since the early 80s. From advertising and television music (Sony, Dunlopillo, Renault...) to pop records (Etienne Daho, Jean Louis Murat, Indochine), since the 90s J.R. has been busy remixing top artists (Silencers, Gypsy Kings, Peter Kingsbury, Indochine, Lambarena, Cerrone and many more) and produced the first French House Compilation in 1991 for Virgin Records. He also co-wrote ‘Human Nature’ with Cerrone which made an appearance high in the Billboard Dance Chart with mixes by David Morales and Frankie Knuckles. He has also worked with James Reynolds (M People, Shamen, Beatmaster, Sasha...) who mixed the loops for this sample library.
