Samplestate present Essential Lo-Fi House, an expansive collection of beats sourced from analogue hardware, hits, vocals and music loops which are soaked in saturation, character and vibe. Hard pushed tape reels, glowing valves, dusty stomp boxes, and classic pre-amps that come to life when the red-line get hit and pushed beyond.

Classic drum machines like the TR-909 and TR-808, routed through a vintage desks before being smashed to a classic Reel-To-Reel tape machine’s or old school cassette recorders to give an amazingly unique drum loop and one shots folders.
The synth and pad loops were created with a Roland Juno and digital Korg combo before being processed via valves, tape, pre-amps and old analogue filters.
The extensive Drum Hit and Chord/Stab sections were treated in various ways, valves, tapes, guitar stomp boxes, germanium fuzz, cheap compressors, MPC style bit reduction and transformers culminating in a selection packed with noisy Lo-Fi flavours.
We’ve also included sugar coated Rhodes loops, smashed through vintage desks and burnt to tape, a bitter-sweet vocal section and collection of disco loops to cater for the varied styles and moods of Lo-Fi sub genres.
