Illmind Drops ’808s & String Breaks’

Producer Illmind is no stranger to the industry. He’s been doing his thing for many years strong and part of his success has been due to some of the sounds that can be found in 808s & String Breaks. Illmind isn’t above periodically releasing some of the very sounds and samples he’s used over the years, and presenting them in convenient Sound Kits. 808s consists entirely of strings and 808 kick drums, hence the album title. The entirely package can be purchased from HipHopDrumSamples.

“For the longest time, I’ve had the idea to develop a complete sound kit consisting of nothing but string sections. Classical music has played a huge part in my life, and throughout the years, I’ve learned to appreciate the various textures that string instruments deliver, regardless of genre, from cellos, to violins, to epic 30 piece string orchestras. “808s & String Breaks” is a culmination of 2 of my favorite textures: heavy TR-808 kick drums, and royalty-free string compositions. I’ve partnered up exclusively with www.hiphopdrumsamples.com to bring to you this unique and exciting special edition BLAP KIT. I hope it inspires you to create amazing musical pieces of your own!”  -!llmind
