Desert by Jay Cactus is the latest addition to the expansive Soundtrap Originals series.

Soundtrap has teamed up with renowned UK drill producer Jay Cactus to unveil Desert, a comprehensive sound pack of high-quality audio content that encapsulates the very essence of UK drill.

This toolkit offers an impressive collection of 300 loops, 135 one-shots, and 80 instruments that are infused with Jay’s pioneering sound design and unmistakable production techniques. With hard-hitting drums, gritty 808 basslines, and melodic loops, this pack aims to empower music creators with cutting-edge sounds to craft authentic UK drill beats while inspiring them to revolutionize the genre.

“We are thrilled to partner with one of the most renowned and influential producers shaping the UK drill scene," said Vanja Steinholtz, Head of Audio Content. "As the genre continues to grow in popularity, this collaboration with Jay embodies our shared dedication to breaking the barriers of music making and empowering creators to push their artistic expression forward.”

Desert by Jay Cactus is the latest addition to the expansive Soundtrap Originals series, a bi-weekly release of sound packs produced by a network of music producers, exclusively for Soundtrap users. From mainstream genres like pop and hip-hop, to emerging styles such as phonk and future trap, Soundtrap Originals enhances Soundtrap’s mission to support producers and songwriters in their creative process with an arsenal of professional-grade audio content.

This sound pack marks Soundtrap and Jay’s latest collaboration to equip music makers with essential tools to explore and thrive within an evolving landscape. Last December, Jay partnered with Soundtrap to introduce the 808 (with glide) instrument, accompanied by a selection of 40+ high-quality presets that make it even easier for users to create bending 808s that have become increasingly popular in modern hip-hop and pop music.
