BULK PROMO RIDDIMS
This bulk/collections service is mainly for DJs. It is always better to purchase the official releases on other official distribution platforms – wherever available online on digital stores.
Please also note: All the collections are promo quality, that is, not the best. These packs are mainly for DJs who require bulk riddims, which many are hard to find anywhere (online and in the real world).
