Flag ENspaceSound on Sound 10/2000


Following on from the superlative Total House and Total Drum And Bass, the
third part of Zero-G's soundware trilogy certainly has a lot to live up to.
In keeping with its older siblings, Total Hip Hop comes on three CDs; disc
one takes care of all of the drum loops, disc two handes all of the
instrument, vocal and FX sounds while disc three contains all of the data
from discs one and two, stored as WAV files.
House and drum and bass music tempos are generally clearly defined and live
within certain narrow margins with hip-hop. However, the tempo boundaries on
this CD are slightly more blurred. The drum loops on disc one range from 65
all the way up to 125bpm. It's not just the tempo that can be elastic
either, as the sheer variety and colour of the loops demonstrates. This
gives the distinct impression that virtually any form of music could be
considered 'hip-hopable' as long as there's a drum loop in there somewhere
and the bloke at the front has his baseball cap rotated far enough.
Luckily, the quality of the programming is what you would expect if you have
heard the other two releases. Regarding the depth of sound, musicality and
sheer usefulness, the Zero-G name on the cover denotes that these loops will
not disappoint.
Disc two kicks off with a huge number of bass licks. So large is this
collection that it takes up the first 43 tracks. Acoustic, electric and
synth basses are all covered and, in each case, you get a good number of
multisamples, as well as the riffs, which generally work very well. One
pleasant surprise is the Brass section (tracks 44-52) which includes some
wonderful live horn riffs alongside some authentic and expertly performed
solo sax and trumpet lines. The Guitar section is also worthy of note,
featuring all manner of acoustic and electric sounds. Although there are a
few riffs here, the focus is mainly on electric guitar effects and single
notes. These cover a fairly broad spectrum of tones and, as such, would work
nicely over a wide range of musical styles.
The synth section features both pads and multisamples but it's the 'Strings
For Films' samples that mark a real high point. These contain some fabulous
live string section recordings of atmospheric and highly 'soundtracky' chord
progressions, followed by some short clarinet samples, flutes and a gimmicky
'Silly and Crazy' section which contains ultra short snatches of exactly the
type of noises you'd expect.
There are a few more 'effects' tracks and some interesting (if slightly
unoriginal) 'scratchy' spoken vocal sounds, before proceedings are rounded
off with a collection of spare drum loops.
Considering this disc's sampling pedigree I would have loved to award it
five stars but I find that I just can't do it. Whilst the range of sounds is
both impressive and highly usable, there is much here that simply isn't
hip-hop (clarinets, ethnic flutes, thrash metal guitars and so on).
The drums are the strongest part of this release and, although it offers a
credible and often inspirational sampling journey, you can't help feeling
that Total Hip Hop is a Return Of The Jedi in sampling form. Still, great
value for money though. Review: Total Hip Hop  Sound on Sound  10/2000Following on from the superlative Total House and Total Drum And Bass, the
