We just put out a sneak preview of 20 open funk breaks as a free download for anybody who's interested. This is part of a larger collection of 200 breaks that will be coming out soon in January.
These are not the same recycled breaks that we're all too familiar with. Curated, edited, eq'd, & processed by me, the majority of them ripped straight from vinyl to wav format.
Some of you may be wondering why an apparel brand is putting out breakbeat sample packs. XFADR as a brand is focused on providing as much value to my fellow crate digging dj/producers as humanly possible.
This is a labor of love, and is something I am obsessively passionate about, so I simply asked myself, "what is the most awesome, most valuable thing someone could offer to me, that would make me love that person back tenfold just for sharing with me?"
The first answer I came up with at the top of the list was a nice zip file archive of rare, dirty, funky, neck breaking, breakbeats to sample for my own productions.
Marketing is easy when you're selling to a niche that you are already extremely passionate about. All I've ever been doing here is making stuff for me, as selfish as that sounds, but it's the truth. It wasn't until I realized how underserved and overlooked we were as a market, that I decided to step in and try to fill that void to the best of my ability.
I really think you'll appreciate these breaks. These were some of my most guarded gems.
