Producer Sharooz Raoofi writes: The initial idea for ´Soundclash´ came from my DJ sets in and around the UK - I was starting to realise that whilst the traditional house sound had shifted hugely towards a more synthesizer-based electronica feel, this music would cease to evolve unless there was a live element of sorts - be it a snatch of live guitar, bass, vocals or real drums. To date, I was unaware of any sample library that captured the true essence of this sound, as most veered more towards 80s old-skool electro or the tech-house sound of the late 90s. ´Soundclash´ is intended as a more open-minded approach to dance music, breakbeats sit comfortably with conventional house sounds, minimal beats and techno. The basslines and musical elements are influenced as much by rock and punk as they are by dance music - in fact many of the basslines were played live on electric bass and transcribed as synth lines.
From a technical viewpoint, ´Soundclash´ comprises an equal balance of digital sound sources and genuine analogue machines from the 80s and early 90s. One sound which will be immediately familiar across the library is that of the Roland SH-101, in my opinion one of the warmest and phattest 80s monosynths! Most of the beats were composed through the 12-bit classic Akai MPC 60 - still an absolute favourite of mine and a must for that authentic 80s drum grit! Most of the sounds were treated with digital plug-ins, as I find this to be the perfect combination for dance music; analogue sound sources with digital processing - the best of both worlds! I suppose ´Soundclash´ is a fitting title for the project, as throughout it the latest digital impulse reverbs and modeling plug-ins clash and blend with old-skool samplers, fx units and drum machines - I only hope you enjoy using ´Soundclash´ as much as I enjoyed making it!
