It goes without saying that the word “funk” has come to mean many things to many people over time. No longer is it simply confined to a sub-genre of R&B, but the evolution of the word has taken a more universal meaning for the “groove” or “soul” found in any music, Hip Hop being no exception. Comb the files of your favorites, those classic records that induce a head nodding experience and more than likely you’re feeling the “funk.”
Divided Souls Productions taps into this sound with their inaugural offering for Maschine Masters. The production crew teams up with Grammy-winning guitarist/bassist Corey “Funkafangaz” Stoot (Scarface, UGK, Juvenile, Bahamadia, and more) to deliver 12 Bit Soul presents: Lo-Fi & Funky. The basses and guitars found within this pack gives the authentic feel of a seasoned musician with the lo-fi punch expected from the 12 Bit Soul catalog. In order to give producers and beat makers a complete sound palette to spur creativity, Divided Souls Productions dug out some unreleased drums from their archives recently processed using the SP1200 to provide the grit to match the greasy guitars and muddy basslines.
