Splice Sessions Dakar Trap with ISS814 WAV MIDI
This pack was born from the Senegal edition of Splice Sessions. The producer Iss 814 (born Ismaila Talla) used some of the raw material from those sessions recorded in Dakar last April to craft his own sounds. The resulting pack amplifies the style he originated called Dakar Trap, combining West African rhythms with those of western hip hop. In addition to plenty of brand new material, Ismaila included some of his signature beats in this pack.
Ismaila makes note that many of Senegal’s traditional instruments are used in western R&B and rap music today. He sees this as a celebratory way to carry on and export the Senegalese tradition overseas. In this pack, you’ll find the sounds of these instruments including the tam-tam, ngondi, kora, and balafon, among others. These instruments reflect the sounds of nature, adding elements of groundedness and connection to the music composed of them. Ismaila looks forward to hearing what you make with these sounds.
Splice Sessions elevates and pays tribute to the creators, cultures, and instruments from around the world that have influenced modern music while providing unprecedented access to unique sounds.
