"With this sample pack I take the cue from my 'Voltage Controlled Feelings' album and continue to explore and interpret the origins of Electro Funk and Boogie. Loads of juicy and fat synths, slapped bass, sparkling Rhodes and slamming drums. Mostly interchangeable four bar loops, some clean, some noisy and dirty, all hand-crafted for your cutting and pasting pleasure!"
