House music producers have been sent a gift from the groove gods.
Dirtybird Records label head Claude VonStroke has released his very first sample pack, Claude’s Construction Vol. 1. Overflowing with the eclectic and quirky noises that VonStroke’s fans have come to know and love, this sample pack gives producers coveted insight into the house guru’s stylistic preferences. He notes,
“Many sample packs are based on a lot of single sounds, but this pack shows you how a typical VonStroke track is put together by providing all the core loops, midi and one shot sounds that go into creating a full concept. Music keys, BPM and information are all clearly labeled and the material is deconstructed from the smallest single elements all the way to the separated tracks that create the song ideas.”
Accompanying this exciting sample pack is a fantastic opportunity for beat makers to showcase their talent. VonStroke announced a production contest for producers using the sample pack, with the winner earning an official release on Dirtybird, a year-long subscription to Birdfeed, and spins on DIRTYBIRD LIVE TV and the Birdhouse Radio show hosted on Sirius XM. Claude’s Construction Vol. 1 can be downloaded here. Contestants can submit their demos to the contest here; the deadline to enter is April 15.
