Italian DJ/Producer Aki Bergen joins the Loopmasters Artist Series with a brand new collection of vintage hardware driven sounds and loops for producers of everything from house, techno, deep and electronica. ‘Aki Bergen – Analogue House & Electronica’ is an eclectic collection of full bodied ear candy sourced from vintage and classic hardware instruments by the likes of Roland, Access, Waldorf, Moog and many more.
The sounds are carefully processed through modern day, high end recording equipment to reproduce every nuance and intricate detail from each highly sought machine.
Aki Bergen’s first passion for music came aged 14 during the early-90s as the rising techno movement reached the European shores. Immersing himself in every release he could get his hands on, it wasn’t long before Aki was DJing at successful nights across Europe. International success came after starting his own label Starlight Music with collaborations from artist such as Dubfire, D.O.N.S. and Shara Nelson of Massive Attack to name but a few and has since gone on to launch the successful Nerotraxx label. Now producing under the moniker Aki Bergen and focusing on slightly deeper productions, Aki has grown a huge international following, achieved high charting releases and has worked with the likes of Danni Minogue, Ralphi Rosario, Milton Jackson, Miguel Migs, Pezzner and many more.
Aki: “When making this pack I wanted to offer producers the same thrill I experienced when I first started using hardware synths and drum machines, I would spend hours teasing intricate unheard original sounds from now legendry synths such as my Roland Sh101, Access Virus, Waldorf Pulse and Q, Minimoog, Roland JP8000 etc. I approached the creation with a completely open mind and dug deep into my vintage gear, looking for those hard to find, sometimes quirky, sonic elements that always add a wonderful organic sound to your productions that you cannot recreate with software.”
