Loopmasters has introduced Niche Audio’s new sample pack that aims to capture the essence of Hook Recordings, one of the UK’s most influential record labels from the ’90s and 2000s.

Produced by the mastermind behind the label Chris Cowie, Hook – Melodic Techno delivers a snapshot of sounds created using the same techniques that made Hook Recordings the torchbearer of the era’s melodic techno sound.

Chris Cowie is an artist who didn’t just help define electronic dance music, he created a unique sound which was often emulated but never surpassed. Crafted with decades of experience and releases on some of the world’s most respected record labels, including R+S, Soma, Music Man, Bellboy, and of course Hook Recordings, this sample pack shares the original DNA of the Hook sound. From basslines, mid-synth lines, top loops, and drum loops, to an array of drum, synth, and bass one-shots, Hook has everything you need to create commercial-ready tracks effortlessly.

For beginners, Hook offers an excellent source of materials to help you produce high-quality tracks using tried and tested sounds that fit the mix. For experienced professionals, it provides a source of inspiration and a glimpse into Cowie’s production techniques. Regardless of your level of expertise, Hook will become a go-to resource for your creations.

The sample pack is priced £19.95 GBP at the Loopmasters store.
