Frontline Producer has released a new royalty free selection of samples recorded and produced by Andy Baker.

Inspired by contemporary artists such as Khruangbin, Elman Namazoglu, John McLaughlin and Adrian Belew amongst others, Funkadelic encompasses bilateral ethno musicographical genres from east and west disciplines.

You’ll hear unfamiliar archetypes from European, Middle Eastern, Indian and South East Asian regions; however the backbone of the music is crucially made up of funk, soul, R&B and rock orientated music. There are electric guitars, live drum loops, electric bass grooves and twisted SFX inside.

Funkadelic is packed with unconventional non-western theory, such as Melakartha and Thaata rāgas, double harmonic minor, harmonic major, synthetic modes and chromatic scales; all of which have been incorporated into the included construction kits. Lastly, vintage funk, funk/rock, avant-pop and fusion sounds have been used to form the foundation and rhythm parts. Furthermore, live jazz/funk drums and electric 5 string bass guitar was employed to provide a substructural groove

The guitar lines were processed using multi-effects pedals: EP Boost, Tube Screamer, Tim and a Pete Cornish P-2 Fuzz. The ambient sounds were generated with Strymon Timeline and Eventide H9 pedals. The whole project was recorded at Crowne Lane recording studios and at home on Logic Pro using a Fender Twin amp and occasionally direct.

Funkadelic features

  • 9 Funk Song Kits.
  • 176 Guitar Loops.
  • 36 Electric Bass Loops.
  • 36 Live Drum Loops.

The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £29.95 GBP.
