Producer Sessions 004: Chad Hugo Sample Pack
Producer Sessions is a series from Dancing Astronaut meant to shine a brighter light on the producer community. Each volume will guide producers towards some of the freshest sample packs, plugins, FX, and presets out there.
Chad Hugo, hitmaking producer of The Neptunes and N.E.R.D., translated his funky grooves into his first ever new sample pack from Splice. The pack contains melodic and drum sequences, his signature percussive hits, funky grooves, and more culminating to 64 loops and 84 one-shots.
Hugo’s a top-tier producer in the game, having collaborated with the likes of Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Nelly, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Clipse, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, and way too many more to list. Whoever listens to the radio on a consistent basis has most definitely heard a track produced by Hugo. Last year, Hugo and Pharrell released their first N.E.R.D. album in seven years, No_One Ever Really Dies.
