This one’s been a long time coming. Motion sent over soultown samples over a month ago, I’m just now getting to it.
Basically, this is for those that still love that sound of hip hop created with samples, chopped up soul and funk or whatever..they way it sounds chopped together.
Motion put together a collection of samples, ready to sample, full with that classic soul sample vibe.
let’s check it out
Soultown Samples? Your personal soul record collection…no clearance needed
You know I love royalty free, so when I got wind of some “soul records” that I could chop up and use without worrying about clearing samples, I get excited.
I often make my own samples by playing out a whole song, with no drums, then I run them through izotope vinyl, then chop them up..no one can ever tell the difference.
But I’m not a musician really, so having a collection of real guitar, keyboard, string, bass, etc players jamming out…then having it edited to sound like old vinyl… I love it.
Check the description:
Still in love with the classic sounds of 70s soul, funk and motown?

Hows the production, and most importantly, how does it sound?
It’s motion man! You know the production is dope…just like they raided the archives of some old defunk soul record company. Everything fits and is well played, has that “texture” you want. I know I heard a few vinyl clicks and pops…even smelled the mildew from some of the vinly record covers….I thought I did.
They jammed out, then chopped those jams into 2-8 parts. The variety is dope, so each samples doesn’t sound the same, you get the chops from one sample, some long some short.
If there’s one suggestion, I’d like to have the shorter chops left together…let me chop em myself. The longer ones are perfect cuz you can take whatever you want.
These aren’t some corny attempts at soul music, I felt like just looping quite a bit and just listening to it lol…but you know I gotta feed Maschine and chop them jonits up!
Quality is on point, well recorded and even though they have an old musty feel, they are still pristine in quality
What’s the bottom line, what’s the final verdict?
Like you really have to guess! Did you watch the video?
These joints are 5 out of 5 subs with no question. Very dope and wonderful for those of us that still like to sample but don’t because we don’t want to mess with clearance issues.
Chopping keyboard and guitar riffs is cool, but choppin these multi samples is very dope!
Like I said, only thing I can suggest, leave the short chops together…other than that…dopeness!
