The Sound of Italo Disco

Label: Sample Magic

80's neon-tinged melodics, retro electro and hi-nrg inspired production...

Drawing influence from a variety of classic genres such as Hi-NRG, Synthpop and New Wave, The Sound of Italo Disco serves up 500MB+ of retro machine rhythms, post-disco melodics, neon-tinged synths and hedonistic euro-pop stylings. Packed with hundreds of expertly recorded loops, one-shots, MIDI, Spire Presets and Ableton racks - The Sound of Italo Disco is an authentic homage to a genre in the midst of an influential revival.

Loops are presented at 115 or 123bpm and all loops are tempo-synced and key-labeled where appropriate.
