A total of 200 samples and 20 sequences, created from the vast array of analog vintage synths & drum machines from Da Sunlounge’s own studio. Processed via iconic 12bit samplers, high-end real to real tape machines and analog desks. The samples steer toward a more classic house, deep/tech house vibe, which can be clearly heard in Da Sunlounge's own productions. However, you will also find they sit well in any hip-hop and down-tempo tracks.
