If you know and love Stereo Percussion Demonstration records from the early 60's. If you even KNOW what a Stereo Percussion Demonstration record is, you will want to own Kocktail Kollection.
If you are looking to add some retro Lounge flavah to some Hip Hop or Dance tracks Kocktail Kollection is the joint for you.
Over 1.3Gb's of greasy, spring reverb laden pieces, steel guitars, accordion licks, cheesy mono synths, vocal licks, guitar ''chicks'', jazz guitar octaves, live drumz, machine drumz, lo-fi breakz, simulated old lounge record excerpts and lounge hitz, make this a true trip into the oily, lounge lizard, musical past.
As you start using construction kits with names like:
Astro Lounge, Volcano at Sunrise, Flutes and Swingers, Swingin'60's, Welk Lounge, TV Suspense Music, Multi Guitar, Dark Paradise, Slo Mo Funk, Ala Brazil, and Acid Mod Atmospherez to name a few, visions of Martini Glasses, Tiki Bars, Hawaiian Islands and Sharkskin Suits, will flood your psyche and......
Well.....maybe nothing that dramatic will happen but Kocktail Kollection can give you some great tools for making authentic Lounge Music of that era, Acid Jazz, Trip Hop, Trance, Hip Hop, Dance and on and on.......
The construction kits cover a wide tip of Lounge styles. From the 1960's sitcom theme sounds of: Flutes and Swingers to the more modern Lounge tip of Ala Brazil or the 60's disco twist stylin' of Swingin' 60's you have a wide palette of drum groovez, sound fx, hitz and total retro insanity to make your tracks sound fresh. All kits feature multi key versions of each piece and many of the sounds are even offered with the option of spring reverb or dry.
Authentic tools of that era were used whenever possible. Spring reverb, vintage basses with flat wound strings and mutes, hand held cheapo synths, and vintage guitars and guitar effects from that swingin' time period were used liberally in the creation of this collection. All loops retain a full ''back in the day'' sensibility combined with full 24bit digital quality.
Kocktail Kollection was produced and conceived by Vinnie Zummo, the award winning creator of Zero-G's N.Y.Cutz line of sample projects, Escape From The Planet Of the Breakz with Shawn Pelton, and his two most recent ZG releases, Nu Jointz and Akoustik Bass Hitz. He is an avid fan of all things Lounge and a virtual scholar of obscure cheese music of the 50's and 60's.
If you are looking for the deep cheese, Kocktail Kollection is the joint for you. Call up Sammy, Frank, and Dino and let the martinis flow…
