Loopmasters releases Marshall Jefferson – House Generation and Harley & Muscle – Deep House Producer
Marshall Jefferson – House Generation
Marshall recruited the services of luminaries such as Byron Stingly and Paris Brightledge to record a great selection of classic House vocals, Chris ‘Bam Bam’ Westbrook recorded the guitars, Louie Louie played percussion, Ed Funk was on Drums, whilst Sherman Burks and Rob Crawford recorded the keyboard loops. Perhaps one of the biggest triumphs of this exclusive sample collection has to be the recruitment by Marshall of Orbert Davis from the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, who was put in charge of capturing an awesome selection of live House Strings and Brass Sections for the project.
When I first thought about doing a loops CD with Loopmasters I wanted one that had no throw away loops – and I honestly think every single loop on this CD is a hit component… This Collection is going to take you from Acid to Synth House to true live Philly style House and back to the Garage, then swing you back to the 90’s and 2k styles.

Harley & Muscle – Deep House Producer
Harley & Muscle are two House Music artists living in Milan, northern Italy. From 1985, these young guys began to hear the first real House Music of the early 80’s from Artists such as Farley “Jackmaster” Funk, Mr. Fingers, Tyree, all the DJ International label productions and the great house music coming out of Chicago, NYC and London.
William “Harley” & Flavio “Muscle” write:
We created this CD for all people who have a soul that understands what the real aim of ‘House Music’ is… “House is a feeling…” (Mr. Fingers, 1986) and this is why it became our main reason for life… It’s a great pleasure to know that in this globe there will be many people using our keys, basslines or grooves to produce new Deep tracks that will spread our love for this kind of music through their hearts…
