Find the groove between R&B, disco, and funk-fuelled early-‘80s boogie sounds from the era including horns, guitars, bass, synths, and more. 59 BATTERY kits and 50 MASCHINE kits loaded with classic drum machines, acoustic drums, and special melodic elements
As the sun went down on the ‘70s, and the ‘80s dawned, new drum machines and synthesizers began appearing in studios. Disco, R&B, and soul had ruled the dancefloors of the last decade. Now musicians were embracing new technology, mixing live instrumentation with drum machines and analog synths to create an irresistible blend of warm textures and cool rhythms. MIDNIGHT SUNSET melts down a sound made famous by SOLAR Records (Shalamar, The Whispers, Dynasty), as well as artists like Prince and Rick James – a sound that influenced music well beyond the decade and later into ‘90s West Coast hip hop.
