London-based producer Catching Flies provides an impressive array of emotive musical loops, encompassing both organic and electronic elements. The pack provides a high level of musical feel as well as attention to sonic texture, with multi-layered drum grooves, modulating basslines, atmospheric pads, warm synth melodies and sampled, organic instrumentation.

The length of the loops works nicely, allowing time for ideas to evolve and modulate, which provides a human feel, even when synthesized or sampled components are used. Although the inclusion of horn, piano and vocal recordings are a welcome addition, the Sax Loops folder feels a little thrown together. Finally, the sampler instruments make a great addition.

The pack sounds refined, whilst maintaining the crackly, lo-fi aesthetic you would expect.
