Smart Loops has released Phat to Phreaky, a collection of urban beats, breakdowns and fills. Unlike other Smart Loops titles, which are performed on acoustic instruments, the grooves in Phat to Phreaky come straight from the beatboxes that you hear on today's hottest songs. The CD contains over 800 grooves in a wide array of styles ranging from Hip-Hop beats to old school grooves and even slow jams.
The company enlisted some of Hip-Hop's beatmakers to produce the grooves in Phat to Phreaky. This CD includes beats from Joey P. (TLC, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Fabolous, Jagged Edge), James "DJ Melo" Davies of Underground Productions (Queen Latifah, Marky Mark, LFO, Popstars Eden's Crush), Dale "Rambro" Ramsey (Jay-Z, U.G.K., Ludacris, Justin Timberlake), Michael Nickolas (music for ABC, NBC, CBS and Showtime), Frank Basile (world-class drummer and Pearl Drums Endorsee), Tracey Clarke (Producer with RJAM/Island Records) and Corey Presley (Jagged Edge, Oprah Winfrey).
Smart Loops offers this set of Hip-Hop loops for producers, rappers, remixers, and musicians of all types.
