RETRO GLOW

As the sun went down on the ‘70s, and the ‘80s dawned, new drum machines and synthesizers began appearing in studios. Disco, R&B, and soul had ruled the dancefloors of the last decade. Now musicians were embracing new technology, mixing live instrumentation with drum machines and analog synths to create an irresistible blend of warm textures and cool rhythms. MIDNIGHT SUNSET melts down a sound made famous by SOLAR Records (Shalamar, The Whispers, Dynasty), as well as artists like Prince and Rick James – a sound that influenced music well beyond the decade and later into ‘90s West Coast hip hop.

MIDNIGHT SUNSET was created in collaboration with Divided Souls.

ANALOG HEART, VINTAGE SOUL

Put the movement back in your music with original recordings of horns, guitars, bass, and more, coming as one shots and loops for any DAW, and Sample Instruments for MASCHINE.
