Loopmasters officially launched early in 2003 with the aim of producing flexible sample libraries for producers and musicians who required top quality playing from seasoned professionals to integrate into and inspire their music. From its inception, the company marched in sync with the sudden explosion of popularity of the computer-based DAWs like Steinberg Cubase, Apple Logic, Propellerheads Reason or Ableton Live, to name a few. Loopmasters populated the market of pro-quality sound design and was among the first to release samples from renowned performers, producers and DJs such as Deadmau5, Re-Zone, Coldcut, Full Cycle, Mad Professor, Meat Katie, Dom Kane, Marshall Jefferson and many dance music icons. For the past 10 years, Loopmasters have provided customers with the best and cutting edge samples and music software that money can buy… and the beat goes on!..

The scope of musical genres released under this label covers various electronic music niches like Minimal House, Techno, Drum and Bass, Reggae as well as single-instrument sample libraries consisting of Loops and Sampler Presets.

Berlin‘s Santé emerged as part of a wave of new producers with a different cut to their electronic jib around the time that deep house was losing its way somewhat. His productions ooze character, charisma, soul, colour, humour and above all a sense of humanity. After teaching himself to play the guitar in his early teens, Santé bought himself an Akai MPC-2000 when he was 16 and set the ball rolling for a life entrenched in electronic music. After leaving home to immerse himself in the dance music mecca that is Berlin he got himself a studio internship and whilst working on producing blossomed producing jingles and ad music whilst nurturing his passion for house music, one of his demos found its way to Matt ‘Radio Slave’ Edwards. His first ever release came out on Edwards’ acclaimed REKIDS imprint, setting the bar incredibly high and garnering him a lot of high-profile attention in the process. In recent times, his style has taken on yet more verve, with the warmth of the house he has always known and loved now bolstered by a loose techno rhythm and percussive drive. The sensuality remains, yet with more dance floor urgency. Whether it’s one of his acclaimed live shows or one of his DJ sets you’re listening to, the infectious energy is always there and Santé’s productions effortlessly span the old and new skool in the most uncontrived of ways.
