After more than twelve months of hard work alongside arguably the most well known DJ on the planet, samplify and Carl Cox are very proud to announce the worldwide major release of ‘Carl Cox Collective – My Life in Music’.
We loved working on this project. It appealed to our strengths. Sound Designers, Producers, composers and musicians. Coupled with avant-garde experimentation using a rare collection of classic vintage gear and the latest digital technology. All 100% written, recorded and produced in-house at our wonderful recording studios here in St Kilda, Melbourne.
It started with Carl bringing in thousands of records to define the sound of his life in music. That in itself was a memory we will never forget. Carl DJ’ing to us for days on end, privately and for free! He is such a wonderful guy that working hard to achieve something we wanted the media to define as ‘ground breaking’ was always an honour an inspiration, never a chore – or a job!
The end result has us very proud of the quality. But much more importantly the great man himself Carl Cox is ecstatic. Loopmasters is the company behind the release and they are the worlds largest supplier of sample packs. Here is their press release:
