Kid Massive: EDM Sessions

Kid MassiveLoopmasters welcome Kid Massive to their acclaimed Artist Series with a mammoth 1.8GB collection of 10 club shaking song kits suitable for all Main Room House and EDM producers.

“I was really excited about being asked to create this sample pack for Loopmasters, as I have been a huge fan of their products for a long time. My approach to creating these kits is exactly the same way as when I make my own Kid Massive material. I always start with the main hook / groove and then build on that if i feel it works. This collection focuses on big room EDM tracks but I have also added a few driving tunes with a more techy edge, I love to mix it up and this pack is a great reflection of what you would hear in my DJ sets, lots of hooks, big drops and driving beats”. – Kid Massive

‘Massive EDM’ features 10 complete song kits with all the elements required to build huge dance floor tracks including Anthemic Synth Melodies, Hard Hitting Drums, Chest Pounding Bass and Spine Tingling SFX.  Each Kit comes with intelligently labeled long evolving audio stems that can be quickly assembled into the backbone of EDM production of epic proportion.
