"Boogie nights (and days) can be yours with this excellent set of disco construction kits. (...) 8 out of 10"

Step back in time to the days when the Bee Gees rocked the dancefloor and Travolta ruled the world.  Boogie nights (and days) can be yours with this excellent set of disco construction kits.  The set starts off with a disclaimer pointing out that these sounds were recorded with an ‘olden days’ feel, so don’t expect these loops to drop right into your latest fay French disco number.  But the blurb also thoughtfully points out that a more contemporary feel can be yours by adding some extreme compression.

 

We kick off with the construction kits, and you’ll be surprised how familiar a lot of them sound, and most contain a complete mix, drums, backing, licks and samples (bass, guitar, clav, strings, piano, etc), then individual drum hits.

 

Next up comes a load of individual hits, and here it’s guitars, brass, flute, strings, e-basses, vocals, effects and keys before breaking down into a wealth of individual drum hits.
