Attack has announced it has teamed up with Samplestar to offer a free sample pack featuring loops and samples of Samplestar’s best selling libraries.
Colin Flynn’s Samplestar imprint is widely regarded as one of the most consistent purveyors of cutting-edge main room house and electro samples, with each release prized for the scores of infectious melodic hooks which many sample providers struggle to create.
This exclusive bundle brings together over 280MB of loops and hits from four of their best-selling releases, from the deeper vibes of the classic Deep Tech Sessions, which takes influences from Steve Bug and Anja Schneider, to the peak time workouts of Progressive Elektro, inspired by the main room exploits of Nicky Romero and Laidback Luke.
Designed for the dancefloor and produced utilising state-of-the-art analogue studio equipment, it’s an essential introduction to one of the most innovative sample companies around.
The Samplestar sample pack is a free download for registered Attack readers (registration free).
