*All drums featured in this preview appear in the Creative Breaks sample pack. Melodic samples are taken from Emani's 'Compositions in Abstract'.
Weaving together the sound and style of vintage drum breaks and the boom and bap of classic Hip-Hop, Creative Breaks is a collection of 50 punchy Hip Hop oriented drum breaks and fills. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Q-Tip, Questlove and Alchemist, Creative Breaks both reimagines familiar rhythms and crafts original drum grooves with Hip-Hop producers in mind.
As a nod to heavily covered classic drum breaks like ‘Get Out of My Life, Woman’ several breaks in this pack include alternative versions, offering producers a greater level of flexibility. Whether looped or chopped, the drums in Creative Breaks provide a solid starting point for any producer looking to capture the essence of timeless Hip-Hop.
PACK CONTAINS: 50 DRUM BREAKS & FILLS

After several years of working as a session player, Emani had a fated encounter with legendary producer DJ Battlecat who took him under his wing and encouraged him to make his own compositions. In recent years, Emani has worked with Joey Bada$$, Rapper Big Pooh, and Mick Jenkins, and has produced multi-million streaming songs for up and coming acts including Ryan Trey and Trent the HOOLiGAN.
