I’m so honored to have been invited to be a guest producer on Andrew Huang’s 4 Producers, 1 Sample episode on YouTube. The other guests Recue and Flux Pavilion were so fabulous–I’m honored to be in their company!

The sample we all used for our tracks is from Jamie Lidell and when I first heard it I fell in love with the quality of his vocals. I turned it into a cinematic ambient house track with all live strings, manipulated the sample a bunch and edited the vocal into little snippets. It felt very apropos to the current climate of the pandemic with the lyrics “Can I hold you anymore?” really speaking to me from my home of solitude, living and being alone for most of the past year.

This inspired me to do a further Behind The Scenes video of my process as well as a sample pack. Here’s a FREE download of the sample pack! Go wild with it and send me what you make or tag me in your creations on IG (@lauraescude)!

This sample pack consists of organic, longing strings massaged to create varied and envelope-pushing sample-based palettes. Each sample encapsulates the raw emotion of my Future Classical signature sound with loops, one shots, FX and sound beds curated from my 4 Producers track.
