Review: Sounds of Revolution Abstract & Weird 2

Product: Abstract & Weird 2
Format: WAV / REX Loops
Price: €16.80

Today, we'll have a listen to Abstract & Weird 2, a loops collection of unusual loops and percussive accents from Sound of Revolution.  This mini-pack consists of 200 loops @ 127 BPM, weighing in around 384 MB.

As the name indicates, this isn't your standard set of house loops.  Instead, the loops are thoroughly processed and very "high tech" sounding.  Filtered clicks and donks, manic, chattering percussion lines, pumping noise, and much more.  This is not a collection that is going to provide your full rhythm track, but rather the perfect sort of thing if you want to add a distinctive edge to your existing beats.  These make it very easy to take even the most mundane four on the floor beat and transform it into something ear-catching and unique.  Will definitely appeal to those making IDM, industrial, and other experimental genres, but it could just as easily fit into more mainstream EDM genres looking for some texture.  [9/10]
