It’s always good to see producers broadening their sample horizons, and with the roots series, Big Fish Audio are doing just that. As the title suggests, these rhythms come directly from the Pacific Islands, so you get beats from places such as Fiji and Tahiti. There are an interesting couple of pages of background at the start of the booklet, and then it’s onto the track listings. The playing on show is often very impressive, with tempos going as high as 240bpm, and you get both ensembles performances and instrument hits and patterns. We think the chants will be sampled extensively, and you even get a few ambient sounds from the islands themselves. Not for everyone, but good all the same.
