Library music is a highly coveted genre in record-collector and electronic-music/hiphop circles for its limited editions and cornucopia of fantastic, sample-worthy tracks. These stylistically promiscuous cuts are typically played by superb session musicians who are following strict instructions to create sounds for particular scenes and moods in television shows and films. It’s a very mercenary, functional scenario, but often timeless art arises from these business-like sessions.
Degiorgio has collated 44 such specimens for this mix; I don’t recognize many names, but those that I do—Tod Dockstader, Klaus Weiss, Ariel Kalma, Black Devil Disco Club, Pierre Arvay, Alan Tew, and Roland Bocquet—are phenomenal. Trust Degiorgio to school you properly. More info here.
