Loopmasters have teamed up with drum & bass-turned-breaks legends Aquasky to release the first in a new series of artist-based sample CDs. 'Vol. 1: Aquasky – Electro House & Breaks' (£29.99 from loopmasters.com) sees this Bournemouth-based trio contribute the parts to their forthcoming single 'Have A Good Time' (Passenger Records) alongside the final version, as an insight into their production methods. Alongside 1G of high quality sound files (500 MBs of original material), each artist has been given the additional task of including a piece of music constructed from the samples provided in order to give an insight into just what can be achieved.
