「TOTAL HIP HOP」のレビュー

Future Music誌（UK)レビュー内容（英語）"Time for another of those Total.... Compilations then. Total Hip Hop features a few sounds you've probably already got plus some you might not have heard. It brings together an eclectic selection of samples for all you hip hop headz out there (if that's what you're still calling yourselves these days; we're in Britain, not the Bronx for crying out loud). Anyway, hood status aside, lets get down to the nitty gritty.
Kicking off at barely-even-there 65bpm, the breaks are generally on the hard'n'heavy side. Some of them will probably be a little over-processed for many people's liking, but nevertheless, there are some cleaner loops just ripe for the picking.
The loops go all the way to an almost garage-esque 125bpm, so you're bound to find something here for your every need. Even the lazier producers among you are catered for with some small but perfectly formed fill and single hit sectins. Bit of a result.
The instrument section comes next and it's grand despite some incredibly cheesy brass licks. The bass, guitar, keyboard, strings and woodwind are all excellent though, and it makes a refreshing change to see so many usable real-life instrument sounds all together on a double CD.
The sound effects are pretty damn good as well and even the scratching isn't hopeless, but the vocal section is a bit on the small side.
On the whole, Total Hip Hop can be described as Total value for money. This is a great value for money collection which is ideal for any producer, at almost any level."
