Music in the 1980s meant drums drenched in reverb, big guitars and bombastic synths. All of these things are represented in SampleRadar’s 80s Samples Packs. Dig out your shoulder pads and get downloading. The ’80s heat samples are divided into five folders, each of which is labelled according to the tempo of the sounds contained within it.
For a long time, a lot of the music produced in the ’80s was held in low regard, but it seems to be an endless source of inspiration for many of today’s artists. We’re celebrating this new appreciation by bringing you a selection of samples that take their lead from the likes of David Bowie, Gary Numan, Michael Jackson and – gulp – Toto.
