EAST COAST SOUL

  • The jazzy, soulful sound of classic East Coast hip hop and boom bap
  • Kits packed with layered, melodic samples
  • Exclusive macros for rich texture and personalized sound


NEEDLE TO THE GROOVE

BASEMENT ERA crackles with punchy, vinyl-inspired drums, sliced jazz interludes, lo-fi vintage chords, and booming bass to bring the crate digging vibe of classic East Coast hip hop to MASCHINE.

Created in association with Raw Cutz.

...AND YA DON’T STOP

In the late 80s and early 90s, boom bap was king. On the East Coast, hip hop producers and artists like Pete Rock, Grand Puba, and Gang Starr’s DJ Premier dropped beats dripping with jazz and soul. These crate diggers scoured shops and mined records for soulful hooks, jazzy breaks, and funky grooves to scratch, sample, and blend. And though the Golden Age eventually came to an end, hip hop instrumentalist Madlib ushered in a renaissance of this jazzy, sample-driven sound in the late 90s and early 2000s.

A CRATE DIGGER’S DREAM

Designed with sample hounds in mind, BASEMENT ERA overflows with royalty-free audio for mixing, matching, and looping. Bass guitar and ensemble one-shots mingle with jazzy flute and horn hooks, funky guitar licks, and vintage keyboard chord stabs, all organized by key. Crisp snares and FX are perfect for crafting gritty, head-nodding beats, while drum decays can be easily trimmed to fit any track. As a final touch, dusty, crackling vinyl sounds add texture, warmth, and authenticity.
