Artist Series Vol.2 – Fast Boo Interview

For this second Artist Series, we’ve had the enormous pleasure to count on Fast Boo as commanders of the ship; two young fellas stemming from Barcelona’s surroundings within one of the most prolific and exciting music scenes in the area.

They first started as Hip Hop producers back in the days, consolidating their ‘RCA Flacos’ project and as they’ve matured and perfected they’re sound, they’ve inevitably shifted they’re sonic approach to a more danceable and sexy sound with Fast Boo.

Now, they’ve recently released his debut album, that include 10 original tracks released on Little Red Corvette Records with various vocal collaborations. These same 10 tracks have been converted to projects and kits for this library, sharing with you how they’ve composed, arranged and produced they’re tracks. So, we’re going to chatter with them about all this things and more…

Sweet Chords Vol.3 Walkthrough – NI Maschine

Hello Sampleheads!

Our new Sweet Chords Vol.3 is out now and we’ve made a video walkthrough of the Maschine pack to show you guys what’s new and exciting about this library.

We’ve listened to your suggestions about making longer chords and we’ve also expanded our sound palette by creating layered chords formed by various instruments like vibraphones, guitars, field recordings, synths (OP-1, Poly Evolver, Nord and Blofeld), vinyl noises and of course the electric piano!

The way we’ve built the kits is also different. We’ve made combinations of chord progressions and single notes to play along and also other combinations made from electric piano chords and analogue chords made of diverse sounds.

The result is 1500+ sounds divided by 48 different construction kits that respond to different moods and ideas that fits perfectly to House, Hip Hop, Future R&B, Electronica and even cinematic compositions.

Sweet dreams and happy beatmaking!
