We make quite a lot of sample cd and construction kits. It is a good gig, pays ok and produces us passive income which is always good. We also get a lot of feedback from people who have bought our kits and they share their mixes with us....it is always interesting to hear what they do with our songs and vocals.
One of the things I think people like about our kits is the vocals, there is nothing generic about what we produce, we let Producer Loops have fully blown stick up boys songs. All the vocals, hits, beats, synths guitars with hisses and crackles and all. We don't make the clean, this is lovely and smooth kind of music. I guess people like us for that (or not)! Although listening back to the demo while writing this I wished we mixed it better and got someone else to master it......
I wanted to highlight a few of them we do over the coming months so will start with one of the first ones we did.

What PL have to say about it!
'Stick Up Boys: Electronic Indie Pop Vol 1' brings you five leftfield, retro-infused Construction Kits, each driven by complete vocal song performances. The Stick Up Boys' music blends the classic synth sounds of the 80's with modern Indie vibes, with a humorous twist thrown in for good measure. This multi-format library comes loaded with all of the features you've come to expect from the Producer Loops label.
At the heart of each Kit is a complete vocal performance, including verses and choruses as well as layers and harmonies. Chop and edit them to create brand new arrangements or vocal fragments ready to drop into any of the five Kits, or your other Producer Loops libraries.
Supporting these authentic retro-styled vocals is a wealth of dusty, vintage synth and analogue drum loops perfectly capturing the sound of modern Electronic Indie Pop. Squelchy basses, warm wobbly pads and arcade synth FX playfully mingle with solid 808 and 909 tinged beats.
Whether you're a producer looking to add something a little off-the-wall to your track, or a composer trying to nail that sought-after 80's vibe for your next sync assignment, 'Stick Up Boys: Electronic Indie Pop Vol 1' is a must-have sample library.
Stick Up Boys:
The Stick Up Boys' off kilter approach to Electronic Pop music is orchestrated by a trio going by the names of "Front", "Brains" and "The Driver" in Brighton, UK. They were originally formed after Front decided the world owed him something and that it was time to take it.
Borrowing influences from modern Dance and Electonica as well as the most notorious of the 80's and 90's Pop scene the Stick Up Boys have been heralded as the "new sound of Urban Pop music".
Check out the Stick Up Boys on Soundcloud.
Each Kit contains complete vocal performances including backing vocals, layer tracks and additional harmonies. Use these as the basis for your song structure, or completely mangle them beyond recognition.
MIDI Files Included:
Like so many other Producer Loops products, 'Stickup Boys: Electronic Indie Pop Vol 1' includes MIDI files for the majority of musical phrases heard in each Kit, allowing you to seamlessly mix your favourite synths and samplers with the sounds contained in the pack.
Advantages of MIDI:
While the supplied ACID/Apple Loops/REX content is extremely flexible and powerful, MIDI has the added benefit of allowing you to go to extremes of pitch and tempo beyond which the loops were originally recorded, with no time stretching or pitch shifting artefacts. Furthermore, you can make tweaks to the riffs so they fit perfectly into your existing mixes.
All of the loops in this product are 100% Royalty-Free (including the vocal loops), so once purchased, you can use these loops in your commercial releases without having to pay any hidden costs.
