Unique and creative underground electronic music loops and samples for modern producers.

Free Trap Samples – Complete List

If you’re looking for free trap samples, you won’t find a list this complete anywhere else!

I’m sure you’ll agree that trap and hip-hop production has surged in the last decade.

Digital audio workstations (DAWs) like Ableton, FL Studio, Pro Tools, and Logic Pro have made it easier than ever to produce great sounding beats and songs.

To produce this kind of music, you’ll need an arsenal of high quality trap samples, drum kits, loops, sound effects, and more.

But where can you find high quality trap samples to use in your music?

Luckily, the Internet is full of free trap samples and trap sample packs. Some are more comprehensive than others, and not all of them are free.

First of all, everything listed here is royalty-free, so you don’t have to credit anyone for the use of these sounds. And best of all, most of them are completely free to download and use anyway.

Within this list you’ll find some generic trap sounds and 808 kits, but you’ll also come across Christmas and holiday sound effects, gun noises, and head-rattling drum rolls.

Take a look and prepare to make your next track something totally unique!

Trap 808 packs

In 1980, manufacturer Roland introduced the TR-808, a completely analog drum machine that would become the gold standard for hip-hop producers everywhere.

The 808 allowed users to program unique rhythms for personal or commercial use. Even some rock bands found great use for the TR-808, such as Nine Inch Nails.

Point Blank’s Ten Jungle Essentials

Calling the Junglist massive! Last week, we put together a selection of ten modern Techno classics just for our readers. This time, we’ve compiled a list of what we consider to be ten essential Jungle records, must-have cuts that’ll keep you skanking from start to finish. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be collating more tracks we believe to be essential listening, so stay tuned! Feeling inspired? On our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree we can equip you with the knowledge you need to make your own mark on the electronic music scene.

Advantage – Theme From Advantage

Starting off with a mellow one… this number from Advantage is pure euphoria. Channel your inner 90s Raver!

Peshay – Piano Tune

Peshay’s ‘Piano Tune’ first got a release at the peak of U.K rave culture, coming out on imprint Good Lookin’ Records in 1995. An instant classic, Peshay’s ethereal choral pads and piano stabs combine perfectly with the signature heavy basslines and classic chopped breaks associated with Jungle.

Demolition Man – Fire

Rough and ready, Demolition Man’s ‘Fire’ exudes that classic Jungle/Ragga feel. Just wait till that filter opens up and the sub pierces through!

Remarc – RIP

UK based Jungle producer and DJ Remarc is widely proclaimed to be “king of the Amen” and “ a pioneer of Ragga Jungle” due to his chopped up tracks for legendary labels such as Dollar, White House, Kemet, labbello blanco and Suburban Base.

Johnny Jungle – Johnny 94 (Dillinja Remix)

No Jungle list would be complete without Johnny Jungle’s ‘Johnny 94’. This Dillinja flip dropped in ’94 on iconic label Suburban Base.

Goldie Ft. KRS One – Digital

UK D’n’B heavyweight Goldie hooked up with legendary American rapper KRS One for the massive ‘Digital’, released on FFRR in 1997. Starting out as a graffiti artists in the West Midlands, Goldie is a true Jungle pioneer, with music critic Simon Reynold being quoted saying  “Goldie revolutionised Jungle not once but thrice”. This record is killer, and the Armand Van Helden Speed Garage Mix on the flipside isn’t bad either!

Brainkillers – Screwface

A split release from the 3rd Party and Kemet stables, Brainkillers 1994 anthem ‘Screwface’ took its iconic ‘Book Me a Cell Yout Man!’ vocal sample from the Winston Scotland riddim ‘Buttercup’.

Tom & Jerry – Airfreshner

An essential to any Jungle collection, ‘Airfreshnr’ blends classic jungle bass and ragga vocal samples with deep, soulful chords, sampled from  Eddie Kendricks’ ‘Intimate Friends’.

Aquarius – Dolphin Tune

We had to include another from Good Lookin’ Records! Aquarius ‘Dolphin Tune’, released in 1994, has got to be one of our favourite tunes containing dolphin samples.

D.R.S Ft. Kenny Ken – Everyman

What a track to end it on – ‘Everyman’ is a classic jump-up skanker. Tough breaks, heavy bass and that killer Reggae sampling. Pure Jungle! This could turn Hare Krishna into a bad-boy!

You can learn more about Music Production & DJing on our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree, on which we teach everything you need to know including mixing & mastering, composition and music business. We also offer an online alternative, in the form of our new online BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree.
