Mark Sargison has released Kaleidoscope Vol 1, a collection of samples aimed at electronica and IDM producers who are more adventurous in their approach to making music.

All of the sounds were lovingly created using a huge range of sound sources and were processed using techniques that I have developed over a fifteen year period.

The brief I set myself when making these samples was to produce samples in the vein of artists such as Boards of Canada, Bibio and Four Tet but also more abstract electronica artists such as Fennesz, Tim Hecker and Seekae. Although these artists were an influence on their production, the final samples are still unique enough to be used within a wide range of musical genres.

This collection contains samples of three different tempi, 80BPM, 110BPM and 140BPM. These tempi were selected as most types of electronica can be produced with them. All of the samples are loops, although some are much longer and have been created in this way so that there is a range of tones and patterns within a single sample.

The Kaleidoscope Vol 1 series of sample packs is available to purchase from Sampleism, starting at £2.99 GBP.
