Loopmasters has teamed up with Toolroom Records for this royalty-free package of tech-house samples. It includes club-ready loops and one-shots crafted by the label’s finest artists, including Mark Knight, Siege, and James Hurr. You’ll find chugging drums, percussion and top loops alongside throbbing basslines, rave-style synth loops, snare rolls and effects loops, plus some decent drum and synth one-shots.

There’s nothing here that’ll set your world alight but the loops are solid, incorporating elements of tech-house, house, tribal and techno styles. The pack isn’t especially big and we expected more from one of the UK’s premier labels, though this is reflected in the price. On the plus side, the content here is concise, well-crafted and primed for club sound systems.
