Spontaneous, exciting, uplifting…  Freshtone Lost Tapes Vol 3 follows on from the huge success of Volumes 1 and 2 with more of the authentic analogue old skool funk and soul goodness of which this production duo have become renowned.

This is no cheap imitation sample pack. From the 100% live played vintage instruments, to the classic, and often rare, recording gear – Freshtone Lost Tapes Vol 3 is a real labour of love, with every note truly organic and played with soul and passion by hugely experienced players. This care, attention and authenticity results in a sample collection that offers incredible value for money!

Presented in Acid Wav and Apple Loop formats, the content in Lost Tapes Vol 3 reflects the period of transition from the early funk of the mid-sixties to the psychedelic influenced funk of the early seventies.

The recording locations for these tracks included Gizzard Studios in East London, with their Alice Stancoil early 1970’s mixer and Studer tape machines. Meanwhile, a trusted Hammond B3, 1972 Wurlitzer, 1969 Gibson ES 335, 1971 Fender Stratocaster and Hofner and customised Sandberg Basses were used in the sessions.

Old Premier and Ludwig drum kits were recorded using a selection of rare ribbon mics, and the uplifting horn section originates riffs that herald the early stages of such bands like Tower of Power and Earth Wind and Fire.

The result is once again an exciting, genuinely authentic collection of old skool tunes that evoke those bygone eras which capture the true spirit of the ages of funk and soul.

From tv composers to hip-hop producers and beyond, these totally live loops can’t fail to inspire you in originating some classic tunes!

"The performances are excellent and the arrangements are spot on. It's all there, from busy drums, to restless basses and biting brass stabs. The producers must have spent most of their lives either watching '70s American TV cop shows or trawling through countless old vinyl collections." – Sound on Sound
