"If you want to try out some dusty, soul infused electric guitar, bass and dynamic drums that are reminiscent of disco funk, then Funky Dream is what you're looking for...think of this pack as a cross section between Brick House and Marvin Gaye."

iMPC The Honest Truth vol.11

Volume 11 is a gift to your ears. Mr. Cates came down the chimney in a santa suit and put together over two and a half hours of the illest beats from the community! Thanks to all the talented folks making beats on iMPC. Give it a listen when you need a break from Christmas carols.

Fresh new Sound Packs exclusively from Retronyms!

"My mind was truly blown when Vherbal dropped Underground Legendz on me. It's a massive pack with awesome crunchy beats. Even better, the music samples and loops are full of epic strings, horns, keys, distorted guitar, and bumping bass. You'll find the same quality samples in Chronic Sounds and This is Hip Hop. They're slightly smaller packs at a great price."

#FreshFriday retro pack and sale

This week is a nostalgic throwback to two Retro music eras, the 70’s and 80’s. Our sale pack, by Hungarian producer Opolopo, pays tribute to the unique 70’s genres of Electro Funk, Soul and Boogie. Find loads of juicy and fat synths, slapped bass, sparkling rhodes and slamming drums. Check out our “grooviest” pack this weekend for $4.99.

Remember Axel Foley from Beverly Hills Cop? Well this Mini Pack is as close as you’ll get to an 80’s crime-comedy soundtrack. It’s a collection of synthwave grooves, beefy FM bass, snappy electronic beats, sleek synth hooks and futuristic effects. Get out your leg warmers and shoulder pads cuz for just $2.99 you’ll be going Back to the Future ;P
