Future Music Review

Piano man Julian Chown fires up his classic 1977 MKI Rhodes on this warm and inspired collection of disco and funk loops and one-shots.  Like all the samples, the 43 one-shots are key-labeled so fitting them into your DAW workflow, or with each other, is quick and simple.  The 235 loops take in solos, backing loops and melodic toplines.  They’re also bundled into 120, 125 and 130bpm, but sit well in any tempo.

The chord progressions are emotive, and the loops playful.  Chown’s playing has been picked up on classic mice and run through vintage amps, and the results are given just the right amount of processing and compression to make them sound straight out of a 70s studio session.  Ideal for broken beat, funky and disco house of the groovier side of breaks, and available in a choice of Wav, Rex2 and Apple Loops formats.
