Episode 5 - Rainy Season Sample Pack

 

Nothing sets the mood better than overcast weather, and rainfall.  There is something about the dark undertone and dampened atmosphere that creates a space for the most deep and profound thoughts to run throughout our minds.  Rainy Season, our newest addition to the library, is the perfect soundtrack to a cloudy day.  Dark textures of resampled synth pads, Rhodes, and gritty synth basses set a dreary tone throughout each loop. This pack was executive-produced by co-founder and CEO Wes Pendleton, who stepped back into the ring for the first time since producing "Cool Breeze Volume 1".

In this week's episode, Smythe hosts Wes Pendleton, to deep dive into the process of the latest Soul Surplus sample packs, "Rainy Season".
