Loopmasters has launched Full Intention – House Republic, a sample collection featuring house beats, bass and melodies by Full Intention.
House Republic by Full Intention features over 600Mb of high quality loops and one shot sounds which have been taken from and inspired by The Duos’s countless Productions and Remixes that span over 15 years including their super fat trade mark drums, basslines and synth melodies. The samples were all recorded through their own Analogue Valve Mixer or the beautiful SSL at RG Jones Wimbledon.
Full Intention aka Michael Gray and Jon Pearn need no introductions. Spreading their dominating sound for the last 15 years they have been a pioneering force on the global dance music scene with a seemingly nonstop string of successful releases including such great tunes as “I Love America”, “I’ll Be Waiting (with Shena), “Spanish Hustle”, “Everybody Loves The Sunshine” and Sex-o-sonique “I Thought It Was You”, to name but a few.
The duo have worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, like Paloma Faith, Duke, Jamiroquai, Whitney Houston, Barbara Tucker, Mood 2 Swing, Ella Henderson, Brandy, Ultra Nate, Aly-us, Fish go Deep, Inner City & DJ Anna and not to forget the Grammy nomination for their remix of George Michael’s “Amazing”. Make no mistake their unique and innovative sound that has left a massive imprint on the scene, influencing many big name producers and gathering a huge fan base along the way.
The pack is available for purchase for £29.95 GBP, with individual parts sold separately starting at £6.95 GBP.

Plughugger has announced the release of Electro Royale, a sound expansion of 150 new sounds for Spectrasonics Omnisphere with the focus on modern sounds for EDM and dance genres.
Electro Royale is a collection of sounds that draws inspiration from harder and louder EDM genres, such as Big Room and modern Electro, while still keeping a foot in the melodic and mellow. Electro Royale combines big, noisy, screeching leads and basses with mellow and laid back plucks and pads. Electro Royale can best be described as a collection of sounds that combines both the hard and the soft.
To achieve a wide sound palette, we departed from our normal modus operandi of only building sounds from a handful of waveforms. With Electro Royale we used everything from the internal synth engine and source materials from synth legends such as Virus, Minimoog and Roland JP-8000 – to plastic sounding Casio keyboards, huge sounds from softsynths and even ambient soundscapes.
Electro Royale is available for purchase for the introductory price of 9.90 EUR for the first ten days (regular 14.90 EUR). Use coupon code ELECTRO2015 at checkout.
