The Thrillseekers Studio Essentials Volume 1


For well over a decade, The Thrillseekers have stood at the forefront of the world's dance scene. From his first hit single 'Synaesthesia', through to the club anthems 'The Last Time', 'Song For Sendai' and 'Everything', Steve Helstrip has been behind some of the most emotive, evocative electronic music ever released. He's shared co-production credits with Chicane and Ferry Corsten; remixed Tiesto and Armin (twice), and reworked Sonique's 'Feels So Good' into a worldwide, No. 1 record.

The Thrillseekers Studio Essentials Volume 1 comprises over 500 drum, percussion and effects samples from The Thrillseekers personal library, which Steve has crafted along with his sound over the years. Around half of the samples are some of Steve's personal favourites from his own productions and remixes, while the remainder are entirely new samples which have been created over the past year for this project.

The Thrillseekers have always put quality before quantity, and this ethos has delivered a stunning collection of audio delights which are ready to drop straight into your productions. All the drums, percussion and effects in the demo (including all the single drum hits) can be found in this collection. Additionally, Steve rendered over 50 loops (minus the kicks) from his original productions for you to use in your own tracks. All in all, we think you'll agree this collection is worth its weight in gold.

With this product we wanted to capture the true ‘Thrillseekers’ sound, rather than just have Steve produce this sample library as a side-project, we asked him to look at this project as a way of cataloguing his own studio sessions and centralizing his production library into a single product. We truly believe Steve over delivered with this ground breaking bundle.
