It is with great pleasure we bring you the latest Samplestate release, the second in the Little Helpers presents series, and this time produced by the Italian producer Alex Piccini.

This pack covers both Minimal, Tech & Deep styles and perfectly represents the sound of the label.

Alex Piccini’s productions have been championed by artists such as Loco Dice, Corola, Richie Hawtin, Reboot etc… With solid releases featuring on labels such as Area Remote, Bitten, Saved, Cecile, Defected and Inmotion amongst others.

Little Helpers is a conceptual digital label courtesy of Andrew Rasse (a.k.a. Butane) and Sean O’Neal (a.k.a. Someone Else) launched in December 2009. Each release on Little Helpers is a strong, reduced groove-tool aimed to satisfy the increasing number of digital DJs. Much like the traditional locked groove vinyl, these tracks are suitable for looping, editing and layering. Yet at the same time, each track has enough variation to stand on its own. That is, each tune, lies somewhere between a full track and a DJ tool — focusing solely on the rhythm or a singular idea rather than extraneous arrangements. This new series of sample product takes this concept into new territory and offered is an inspiring pack jam packed with the essential building blocks for Minimal, Tech, Techno and Deep productions.

This pack features 149 drum loops with kick free variations, tops and also those essential background and organic loops to add dimension to your productions. 71 music loops including basslines, pad loops and chords.

This collection also has 70 individual drum hits, 25 chord stabs, 25 bass hits, 25 EFX, and 17 twisted vocal samples. As well as this we’ve programmed each of the individual hits into EXS24, Halion, Kontakt, and NNXT format to make them as usable as possible.
