Future Bass Sample Packs

If you’ve ever been to a music festival, there is no doubt that you have heard future bass music. It’s a synth-based genre of music, also drawing inspiration from trap, pioneered by artists such as Flume and Cashmere Cat. Some other notable artists that have contributed to the genre are Ekali, Louis The Child, Flux Pavilion, Illenium, Marshmello, RL Grime and more.

The most evident characteristics of future bass music are massive detuned supersaw synth chords and leads, hard rapid-fire trap drums and a sub bass that will shake your entire house. It is common to use risers, white noise and drum build-ups in the arrangement of these songs, and some tracks also feature lush vocals. 

If you want to start making future bass music, these sample packs will help get you on your way.

Ekali Sample Pack

Ekali is a Canadian instrumentalist and producer from Vancouver, BC.

He has done official remixes for Flume, Khalid, Alina Baraz, Snakehips, Ta-Ku and more.

This pack contains many sounds that Ekali has made for his own productions or taken from his own collection. In this pack you can find assorted kicks, snares, percs, hats, loops, and misc sounds.

  1. KRNE Samples Vol. 1

Early days of hosting demos and bootleg remixes on Soundcloud gave way to acclaimed singles, remixes, EPs, albums, and a collaborative series called ‘SESSIONS’. The quick rise of his project in 2015 led to the release of TOKiMONSTA & KRANE’s single “Put It Down” featuring Anderson .Paak.

This pack is the first of an ongoing series of sample packs, featuring drums, FX and synth samples from his most popular tracks.

  1. QUIX Sample Pack
