Free tunes: Aquasky and Loopmasters present.... Monster Sounds!

If you haven't already heard of sample label, Monster Sounds, born out a collaboration between Aquasky and Loopmasters, now's the time to start getting interested if you're looking for that royalty-free edge and talent for your productions! Starting with Black Noise aka Aquasky's alter-ego and 'Warehouse' back in March, the collection has steamed through productions from The Baker Brothers, Sy & Unknown, the Organ Donors, and now the Monster Sounds Pro Series, 'East Coast Rap Pack'. 

The lowdown:
Brent from Aquasky explains, “There will be two levels to what Monster Sounds is about. Firstly presenting a fantastic line up of some of the very best musicians/producers that we know. Secondly to offer packs designed for the working producer that concentrate on key instrumentation or vocalisation, a staple for any professional recording studio.”

Monster Sounds aims to provide inspirational royalty free audio content for music producers and DJ’s alike. Incorporating pro Sessions from well-known artists or tailoring specific musical and vocal content for the professional recording studio.
And with that, here's 'New York Rap Acapellas Vol 1' for the "professional and the bedroom producer", created with MCs NineLives The Cat (Brooklyn MC and member of punk-rap group The Deathset), Telle Gramz aka Bathroom Sexxx (Ninja Sonik), and Pablo Pleeeez!!! (Boy N Girl). The vocal performances are designed to fit with a range of styles, so manipulate at your will!

You can grab 10 free samples for download now as well as a demo track for inspiration:
