“More than enough fine filterable Disco savoir-faire to keep even the most die-hard fan happy, the guitar licks are the ones to watch, Funky enough to make even Nile Rodgers pull a screw face”
Future Music 9/10
Fresh from the Monster Sounds vault we bring you this collection of lovingly crafted riffs, loops, beats and multi’s all busting with the distinctive bumping swagger that we all know and love as the grooving soulful sound of French electronica.
Some of the most iconic dance music of the last 20 years has come from the shores of France leading the filter electro sound, basing the tracks around a straight four to the floor groove with a heavy disco funk soul influence, but bringing a contemporary electronic sound into the mix with house production techniques and sounds.
Many of these popular releases have relied on sampling the main groove from records to capture the live feel and vibes from the original 70s and 80s classic records’ which is a risky business and can lead to long legal battles if the sample is not cleared – with Daft Funk you can avoid these hassles and get straight to the funk!
We have thrown down a huge set of grooves, from beats to bass lines, keys and funky guitar licks that Niles himself would be proud of.
Mixing the full grooves together then give you the chance to filter and mash them up as if you were sampling from a record which is the key to capturing the sound of sampling records, as the way your filters react to the full loops is much more authentic if all the instruments are playing together. To give you full flexibility we have given many of the grooves split down in to individual parts also to allow you to build your own grooves.
Drum-wise we have given you a mixture of live drum loops for the funk and disco, but also some thumping house beats and tops to get the floor shaking and a set of one shots to build your own kits.
In the Bass department, in addition to a great selection of live funk bass riffs, we have included a whole heap of the dirtiest electro synth bass grooves and one shots to get the cones rattling on the more electro style tracks.
Synths, there are plenty of hand raising pad riffs perfect for the breakdowns, And creativity inspiring top line leads, for the riff writers a great set of Multi samples to craft your own parts. Also for the Complextro crew a great collection of one shot stabs, perfect for accenting your riffs to get that complextro mash up sound.
The final parts are the FX , with the inclusion of the always useful up and down whooshes to make the euphoric builds and drops.
All the Single sounds have been genre and type tagged ready to be used in Native Instruments Maschine software.
Monster Sounds are really proud to bring you a pack which we feel captures the essence of this exciting sound that has become a worldwide phenomenon for good reason, due to its simple use of infectious grooves. We believe this pack will give you the building blocks to set you on your journey to produce some floor filling tunes.
