More info on the Producer
Vince Clarke is a living legend.
A founding member of Depeche Mode writing 'New Life', 'Just Can't Get Enough', he has since gone on to form two more hugely successful bands. First Yazoo with Alison Moyet, then Erasure with Andy Bell.
Yazoo produced timeless classics such as 'Only You' and 'Don't Go' and led to a successful solo career for Alison Moyet. Erasure have spent ten years at the top of the charts in the UK and around the rest of the World.
Their hits have included 'A Little Respect', 'Sometimes', 'Drama!', 'Always', 'Stop!' and many more. Their 'Erasure' LP was a new departure, a concept LP produced by the Orb's Thomas Felhmann, and was arguably their best work ever. Their latest 'Cowboy' LP saw a return to their 3 minute pop songs. Vince has been spending the first part of 98 hiking in Nepal for charity and taking something of a break.
However he's been asking for disco loops so you can rest assured Erasure will be back soon with more good stuff.
...this CD is a must for anyone creating techno-pop tunes - or for anyone creating anything vaguely electronic-sounding with a sampler. Ambient-dance acts will love the filtered sections, rave and acid fans will love the blippy loops, Industrial bands will want the heavy kicks and sub-basses, Kraftwerk eyro-artists will use the thips, pings and electronic percussion noises, new age nuts will layer the sweeps with their guitars...Lucky Bastard is one hell of a useful CD. 9/10" - Future Music, Nov 93.
"Five Stars in every category." - Keyboard, USA
"would certainly make a worthwhile addition to many peoples sample library. 8/10." - SoundUser
"this CD could fulfil most analogue dreams, be they industrial, ambient, techno or just clouded, gibbering fantasies" - Music Technology
Founder member of Depeche Mode, Yazoo, The Assembly, and Erasure, plus remixes for artists such as Sparks and Alison Moyet. Widely acknowledged as amongst the world's leading synthesists and songwriters.
GENERAL: REX files are amazing! They are files created by Propellerhead's ReCycle that scan lice up any suitable rhythmic sample and produce a file that includes the sample data and sequence information. These files can be loaded by many of today's most popular software (Reason, Logic, EXS24, Cubase, Digital Performer, and many more!) and will automatically play at any tempo you choose. The software will also give you loads of additional options that allow you to control much more too - use the groove with other sounds, knock out a specific element or take out hits to use in your own loops, and much more! REX2 files are stereo and REX(1) files mono. MOST software supports both formats. You can even import REX files into ReCycle and export them to the huge number of samplers that supports. REXing files is a very skilled job. Some files are easy but a well-REXed library can take a huge amount of work to create. AMG released the World's first REX and REX2 CDs and have been pioneers of the format. If you've never used REX files check them out, once you've used them you'll never go back!
SPECIFIC: This CD features REX versions of every sample from the collection that is REXable. It also includes WAV files so other sounds are also included.
