Tech Flavours is a Drum & Bass Sample Pack inspired by the sub-genre of Tech Step, a style that has cemented itself in the Underground UK Drum & Bass scene since its first pioneers (artists such as Ed Rush, Trace, Optical, Teebee and Doc Scott) pushed the sound in the mid 90’s.
It appears as though the sub-genre was created to oppose the adoption of more upbeat and commercial sounds that were emerging in the early stages of the evolution of Jungle and Drum & Bass.
As a consequence, Tech Step is characterised by a dark and moody undertone still prevalent in the underground scene today.
Production styles have developed over the years and so has the sound of Drum & Bass.
Tech Flavours attempts to capture the spirit of the pioneering Tech Step Artists and translate it into where it is today – picking up on modern influences along the way.

Drum Loops, Top Loops & Fills
The drums were created by combining drum synthesis with recorded transient sounds and textures, which set the stage for an interesting library of hits to program the loops from.
Glitch, distortion and modulation FX often pierce into the final beats of the loops to create fills with a tech signature.
Look out for the 70 Tuned kicks included the one shots section which are available across all tunings A-G.
