Computer Music Review

"Since launching in 2006, Sample Magic has built up a fantastic reputation as one of the elite dance sample vendors. So when their latest sample pack, the simply-titled Electro, landed on our desks, we assumed it was going to be top quality. And it is.

There are 888 one-shots and loops here, and, as expected, it's a well-produced and versatile sample pack.

It's primarily a loop-based affair, with deep, gritty baselines, tight, heavy kicks and energetic effects.

The real selling point, though, is the production. These samples are not just ready for the floor - they're dying to get out there and show off their moves. They're big, deep, wide, and anything but static.

Sample Magic have proven yet again why they are the go-to guys for dance producers in all its forms.

It might seem slightly pricey, but it comes with a behind-the-scenes short film and in very neat packaging (there's also a download version for £50). In short, it's quality through and through. Rating: 9/10."
