Sonic Dope Trap Drum Kit

This is another hip hop drum kit comes from Modern Producers. This is a must have drum pack for trap beat producers. There are some outrageous sounds here that can shift your mindset from the common generic trap beat maker to a more unique future proof producer.

Look out for Kick 5_XT.wav in this kit as I tend to use it in a lot of my beats for both trap and pop beats. The kick slices right through the mix for heavy 808 mixes and base driven pop tracks.

Beats Made Using This Kit


Sounds From The Sixth

This kit and the OVO bundle kits are very similar to the above trap kit. They have very Bo1 Da style drum sounds.

On the onset this kit kind looks a bit basic. At first I felt that I didn't really need it as I already had the Experimental trap kit, but it wasn't until I start to take a listen to all the 14 construction loops that come with this kit that I started to look for more unique ways of creating that Drake style drum sounds.

The snares , claps and hats stand out in this kit once you have listened to the construction kits for some inspiration.

Considering that the OVO and the Drake style beats are pretty popular with up and coming rap artists and music producers, this drum pack is not a bad kit too reach for when you want to create that type of sound.

Hip Hop ​​​​Vocal Samples

Even though this kit isn't specifically Drum sounds, I added it here in this list of hip hop drum kits because it's pretty hard to find a good vocal pack online. 

And it's even harder to find a vocal sample pack that hasn't been used to death by every beat maker online.

I don't go over kill with the vocal samples in my beats, but from watching many beat making tutorials and listen to modern type beats, you can see a pattern of how producers are using vocal samples to replace the common pad sounds.

Commonly music producers tend to add pad sounds to keep the movement of the beat without making the beat too busy.

If you listen to this beat making tutorial that I added on the left hand side here you can see how I use the vocal samples as effects and to replace the pad sounds that I would normally use in the music production process.  

Boom Bap Kits For Rap Beats

Hip Hop Vocal Samples

I used to use this kit quite a lot in my old beats. Since I know create more electro trap type beats I tend to use the above kits. 

But I still reach for this kit when I want to move a from sounds that I am too familiar with. This kit is handy for any one that makes old school sample type beats, rnb type beats and boom bap type beats. 

The beat to the left hand side, I use a mixture of this boom bap legends kit and the industry standard kit.

I wanted to get a mixture of old school sound and merge it with a more commonly heard story teller beat. Similar to what you would hear with J Cole or Kendrick Lamar Instrumentals

 The sound engineers have spent their time here recreating same sounds used by J Dilla, DJ Prem & Kev Bown. Boom Bap Phonetics hip hop drums are the best sounds for the early 90’s hip-hop sound.

Capturing the creative techniques used by old school legends filtering and use of compression. All sounds were recorded from vinyl and tested many chains for that signature boom bap hip hop drums sound.

Timbaland Drum Kit

Beat Made Using These Boom Bap Drum Samples


Genius Kit Inspired By Timbaland

This is a kit that I have had in my drum sample library for a long while. Hip hop heat has been on the drum sample scene for a long while. 

Before the Drake type beat sound held the throne with beat makers a like, the Timbaland type beat sound dominated the online music production trend. 

While some might see this kit as out dated and not with the current trap /  electro rap tends of now days, I still feel that there are some really good sounds in here that any music producer can incorporate in their own music production. 

The Timbaland style drum samples still knock it out of the park for me when it comes to making a more radio friend rap/pop type beats.

So Clean Type Kit

Like that of the Timbaland type beat kit above this So Clean kit has a couple of gems here too. I still reach in here for the odd clap or hat sounds that I am familiar with. 

Some times you just get used to the sounds that you have in your sample libraries, and you know exactly how to mix them. 

If you like creating RnB or {sample type beats like the beat to the left}, you will find some samples that you can use to create these Pharell Williams or The Neptunes type beats.


Mixing rap beats is a hard and complicated process. So starting with a good source material will make your own job ten times easier. Go through pages of forums online on how to mix rap beats and you will see the common phrase “start with good sounds”.

Mixing beats with over compressed drum sounds will just muddy your mix and make it sound unclear. Most professional hip hop drum kits are already perfectly mixed so you only need a little basic of Eq and compression.

The main reason rookie producers end up with bad sounding instrumentals, is that they never start with good sounds in the first place. They end up over Eqing and compressing, thus they end up with a muddy mix.
