Dark + Chill was born in the cool of the night. There’s something special about an empty studio space with low lighting that lends itself to inspiration and creativity. We’ve all felt it. The ideas just keep coming and the studio monitors are certain and true, as the noise of the day surrenders itself to the quiet calm of night. It’s a great moment. And you should have a sample library of drum sounds that captures the essence of this moment. So much of today’s popular music calls for an even, chill-out vibe. Dark + Chill is here to answer the call with a collection of refreshing one-shot samples and loops custom developed to give you the vibey, moody sound of the hottest Pop, R&B, Smooth Hip-Hop, and Techno-Electro tracks of today. This drum sample library merges the classic club sounds of 1990’s Techno music with the cool of modern Pop — custom developed sounds uniquely processed and layered samples with Tempest, RYTM, Machinedrum, Eurorack Modular Synth, 808, 909, 606, and MFB Tanzbar hardware machines.
