I’m pleased to announce the launch of Crates: Sample Packs by WhoSampled:
Crates offers exclusive sample packs from leading musicians, writers and producers alongside a curated collection of artist albums in sample-friendly stem format. All sample packs are pre-cleared, allowing producers to flip samples and get creative, safe in the knowledge that their creations can be released with simple, no fuss sample clearance guaranteed and no upfront payments. Sample usage is royalty free up to a million streams per track, with royalties shared with the sample creators on clear, fair terms thereafter.
The site’s intial selection includes beautiful compositions combining piano and vintage synths from in-demand pianist Elijah Fox (ScHoolboy Q, Denzel Curry, Musiq Soulchild) alongside a captivating debut sample pack from cult multi-instrumentalist and producer Kutiman packed with atmospheric synths and Eastern string instruments. Library music / soundtrack dons Globeflower (Mr Bongo Records) also deliver their debut sample pack, influenced heavily by the golden era of library music. UK sample pack creator K.Dafoe (CRIMEAPPLE, Kool G Rap, King Magnetic) debuts his NUVU Collective outfit alongside material from fellow Brits Major Seventh Music Library, while Beat Batter bring a collection of beautifully recorded and processed drum breaks and percussion loops to the mix.
