A bevy of dance music artists, producers, and vocalists have teamed up with renowned music production marketplace Cymatics to craft an expansive sample pack in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The bundle, titled "Hearts Vol. 2," features contributions from Excision, KSHMR, Dion Timmer, Dubloadz, Dirty Audio, Leah Culver, Henry Fong, IVEEN, PhaseOne, Graves, OTR, Slow Magic, Ramzoid, Jameston Thieves, and Laxcity, among others.
100% of the proceeds from the sample pack will be donated to three organizations fighting for racial justice and equality amid nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd. Those organizations are Black Lives Matter, Campaign Zero, and the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
The team at Cymatics is responsible for constructing and releasing some of the most prevalently used samples and presets in electronic dance music. Their custom drums, synths, pads, bass patches, and other sonic tools appear ubiquitously in music from many of the genre's most prominent produced.
