UK house producer DeMarzo presents a collection of vintage and modern mainroom house samples for Loopmasters. The pack contains over 860MB-worth of 24-bit content, with 457 loops, 440 one shots and 96 patches for the major samplers.
You get fully mixed drum loops plus individual drum, hat and percussion stems, with some excellent, solid and very usable grooves. To back this up, you’ll find an array of more modern, melodic synths, modular-sounding arps, and thumping bass loops, including some squelchy Volca Bass acid loops.
There’s pleasing analogue liveliness emphasised by excellent programming and the raw finish. There are also killer bass and synth one-shots (plus 10 multi-sampled instruments), and a collection of drums, FX and atmos sounds. If you’re writing raw, modern-sounding house music, we’d highly recommended adding this to your collection.
