"Now, R&B is definately not my thing, but there is so much on these two CDs, covering swing to house, all well recorded...if it's your bag, then it's an excellent purchase." - Dream, January 98.
"The third volume in Joe Charles and Steve McIntosh's Black II Black series is something special...Overall, the content is slickly soulful - somewhere between New Jack Swing and R&B - but each of the loops and licks is so well put together that they'll work in a wide variety of applications...the range of usable samples is enormous...Basically, if you're in the market for making seriously funky tracks, you can't afford to miss this collection." - The Mix, Feb 98.
The classic mix is back - but taken a step further. All your favourites are here, but better than ever. Loops straight from the top draw, broken down into alternate mixes, Cone Rippin' Brass Licks including full sections and trombone, Funky Dope Guitar Licks, Big Mama Vocals and Vocoded Hook (subject to licence like Killer Vocals), Bin Bustin' Bass Lines and Finger Snappin' Keys.
More info on the Producer
Steve & Joe are veterans of the UK soul scene. The Cool Notes achieved chart successes during the eighties. They signed for PWL but the plan to 'sell soul back to the Americans' never came to fruition. They have however taken time out to produce and remix for the new breed of UK dance acts and are in the process of relaunching their careers again as The Cool Notes. Their high quality BIack II Black Series of Sample CDs are legendary too.
