Three decades since the Second Summer of Love was in full swing, ShamanStems pay homage to rave culture's heritage with their throwback collection of classic stabs, crunchy chords, cheery pianos, dusty organs, paean choirs and crystallized pads gleaned from the legendary synths that defined an era.
Covering the movement's development around its numerous nuclei around the globe, you'll be able to discover the jaunty sounds of late 80's US and UK Acid House, the chart topping Belgian hits of the early 90's, the euphoric techno phenomenon spearheaded by Berlin's Love Parade, the hoover-led Dutch dominators and the sped up sounds of breakbeat hardcore.
What's in the collection:
- Classic and Dusty – Dusty cut-up and layered melodic elements, grainy synths, processed chords, orchestral hits, amped guitars, sliced brass and bells galore. Inspired by UK and Belgian classics: 105 shots and 49 loops
- Edgy and Tech – Pertaining to the razor-sharp warehouse sounds of the bustling German scene following the fall of the Berlin Wall : 114 shots and 35 loops
