XSound library funk, grooves, and breaks -- from Italy, France, England, and beyond -- on labels like KPM, DeWolfe, and Bruton!


Joel Vandroogenbroeck

Images Of Flute In Nature
Cenacolo/Bonfire (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Images of flute, and some mighty cool keyboards too – a sweet sound library set that mixes the reed work of Joel Vandroogenbroeck with electric touches that create a killer sound that's not unlike some of the 70s soundtrack material by Sven Libaek! Joel's lead lines have the expressive feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2024. New Copy
A massive bucket of breaks from drummer Karriem Riggins – served up here in a drums-only entry to the Madlib Library Series, at a level that might well make it the funkiest of the bunch! There's definitely some slight effects used here from time to time – maybe some edits too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maurice Lecoeur

Musiques Pour L'Image
Transversales Disques (France), 1970s. New Copy
Really funky sounds from Maurice Lecoeur – an overlooked French soundtrack genius of the 70s – and one who worked in territory that was way past familiar standards for film! If you know the music of Francois DeRoubaix, you'll find plenty here to love – because like DeRoubaix, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Homewood/Sacred Bones, 1976. New Copy
One of the coolest, moogiest records we've ever heard from Mort Garson – and that's saying a lot, given that the man gave us the Wozzard Of Iz and a host of moog-based astrological records too! The album's billed as "mood music especially composed to aid the growing of your plants" ... CD

Bruno Spoerri

Teddy Bear/Lilith
Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), 1978. New Copy
CD...$4.99 16.99
Two rare soundtracks from the quirky Bruno Spoerri – both of them a very cool blend of jazzy reeds and lots of electric touches! Teddy Bear is from the early 80s, and is one of the later records we've heard from Spoerri – a set that definitely bears the pedigree of its time, through ... CD
Themes/Be With (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
That's a pretty dramatic image on the cover, and Brit maestro Alan Tew follows it up with just the right sort of tunes you might expect – many of which are thematic tracks titled "The Detectives", and which would be right at home in some kind of cool 70s cop/crime TV show! As with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cavendish/BBE (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Brilliant funky instrumentals from the UK Cavendish Sound Library – a company who could sometimes recorded more staid music, although that certainly wasn't the case with the gems on this collection! The music is by a handful of British studio talents of the time – most of whom come ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Moore

Vocal Shades & Tones
De Wolfe/Be With (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
An ultra-hip batch of vocal tracks – and one of the few full albums recorded by singer Barbara Moore – a UK jazz artist at the start, but then an important studio talent often working behind the scenes! Barbara's got a very groovy style that's part jazz, part easy, part sunshine pop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alan Parker & Alan Hawkshaw

Black Pearl (black & white vinyl pressing)
De Wolfe (UK), 1973. New Copy
A real sound library treasure from the UK scene of the 70s – a set that features two of that genre's heaviest talents – back to back on a single record! You probably know Alan Hawkshaw for his famous work on keyboards – including his classic organ riff on "The Champ" by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Exactly the kind of record that makes us love sound library records so much – and definitely the sort that sets the style apart from anything else we can think of! Both Sandro Brugnolini and Giorgio Carnini turn in some great work here – a mindblowing mix of modes over the space of ten ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni Safred

Electronic Designs
Jump/Four Flies (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A set that's not nearly as electronic as you might expect – at least not in any sort of cold, computer-styled way – as the record is full of plenty of great analog touches on keyboards, basslines, and other bits – all of which really give the whole thing a very warm glow overall! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Umiliani (Zalla)

Paesaggi
Liuto/Four Flies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the most seductive sound library albums ever recorded by Piero Umiliani – a set that was originally issued under his Zalla pseudonym, but which has all the best jazzy grooves of some of his famous soundtrack material from the end of the 60s! As on those records, Umiliani plays a host ... LP, Vinyl record album
Selection/Sdban (Belgium), Late 70s. New Copy
A rare look at a very obscure sound library from the European scene – the Belgian Selection label, home to some very groovy sounds from the late 70s! The music here resonates with Belgian soundtrack and jazz work of the period – and shares some musicians from those genres too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Christian Zysset

Cosmogonie
Mondiophone/Endless Happiness (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A 70s sound library record, but one that's also very different than most – as Christian Zysset put together the whole thing more as a jazz record with long, extended tracks – instead of the more typical batch of shorter themes and songs! The set's got a largeish group who stay together ... LP, Vinyl record album

Suzanne Ciani

Flowers Of Evil
Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Suzanne Ciani has cut some sweeter sets over the years, but this album's definitely not one of them – as the whole thing is an early piece from the artist's career, recorded on the Buchla synthesizer, and based on the work of Charles Baudelaire! The core piece, "Flower Of Evil", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Swing Family (Sauveur Mallia)

Music Force
Tele Music/Be With (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
A full on funky set from French maestro Sauveur Mallia – a record that mixes his own work on bass, keyboards, electronics, and samples with some slight touches over the top on trumpet, trombone, and saxophone too! The style is definitely a lot more 80s than some of Mallia's 70s work – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Umiliani (Zalla)

Paesaggi
Liuto/Four Flies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the most seductive sound library albums ever recorded by Piero Umiliani – a set that was originally issued under his Zalla pseudonym, but which has all the best jazzy grooves of some of his famous soundtrack material from the end of the 60s! As on those records, Umiliani plays a host ... CD

Matt Berry

Simplicity
KPM/Acid Jazz (UK), 2023. New Copy
A really fantastic pairing of forces – as keyboard collector Matt Berry serves up a special set of instrumental tracks for the KPM sound library – many of which are done on the kinds of keys that KPM were recording back in the day! You might know Matt for his work on screen, but he's ... CD
Sacred Bones, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
One of the coolest collections of work we've ever heard from the great Mort Garson – a selection of tracks that were done during the same years as his famous album releases in the world of moog and analog synth, but done for much more obscure sources that include television, film, and other ... CD
Homewood/Sacred Bones, 1976. New Copy
One of the coolest, moogiest records we've ever heard from Mort Garson – and that's saying a lot, given that the man gave us the Wozzard Of Iz and a host of moog-based astrological records too! The album's billed as "mood music especially composed to aid the growing of your plants" ... CD

Yan Tregger

Ducks & Drakes
BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy
CD...$9.99 14.99
An underground funky gem – one that never made it past the collections of the elite sound library audience in the 70s – but which is well deserving of global acclaim! Yan Tregger works here in this style that's every bit as funky as his contemporaries on bigger library labels, but ... CD
Columbia/Holy Basil (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Sweet funky keyboards from the Japanese scene – a set recorded by Shigeo Sekito as part of an ultra hi-fidelity series in the 70s, but done with a lean groove that's much more like some of the late 60s instrumental gems we love so much! Shigeo moves between electric piano, organ, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sharon Mhati Chatam (Gianfranco Reberberi)

Fantasy (with bonus download)
Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
With a cover like that, it's easy to see where the fantasy in the title is going – certainly not into the musky world of swords and sorcery, and instead into the realm of slinky sounds that are right at home in the Italian sound library world of the 70s! The music here has all the warm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2024. New Copy
Joe Harrison starts out this set with a reference to David Axelrod, and the set just keeps getting better and better after that – as Joe mixes together vibes, mellotron, guitar, organ, flute, and lots of other cool instrumentation – but all with a lean vibe that's definitely more on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2023. New Copy
Maybe the heaviest set of sound library grooves you'll ever hear – but that's probably no surprise, given that the package features some key Heliocentrics elements in the mix – including lots of psychedelic production next to fierce work on drums from Malcolm Catto and Jake Ferguson! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni

Open Air Parade
SR/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a sound library record from one of the all-time greats – and maybe one of the few artists who gave his equal all, whether he was cutting a full film soundtrack, or just a discreet batch of tracks like these in the studio! The music is as groovy as groovy can be – sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tele Music/BMG (France), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
Great grooves galore – a sweet selection of tracks from the late 60s onwards, none of which were made available to the public at the time! The French Tele Music company was one of those secret sound library labels – recording top shelf tracks during the 70s, but then only passing them ... LP, Vinyl record album
Themes/Be With (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
That gun on the cover is a great hint at the action within – as UK sound library genius Alan Tew comes up with a whole host of hip cop/crime grooves for the set! Tracks are short, but done brilliantly – with a blend of keyboards and electric basslines amidst warmer jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
678 Records (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy
This entry in the very cool PV Tapes series features the full soundtrack music for a TV series titled De Komst Van Joachim Stiller – work that opens up in ways that are even more expansive than some of the other releases in the series! The tracks are short, in a cue-type style – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roger Webb Sound

Moonshade
De Wolfe/Be With (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A jazzy gem from the DeWolfe sound library in the UK – a record done by pianist Roger Webb, but with an expanded "Sound" – as you might guess from the title! Roger plays both acoustic and electric pianos, in a variety of styles – and a number of cuts here have sublime ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio Campo/Sammy Burdson/John Fiddy

Slow – Motion & Movement
Sonoton/Be With (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
A great set from that moment when sound library instrumentation was winnowed down from a larger group of studio musicians to usually just a composer and a keyboard – definitely the approach used in this all electric set! The groove certainly lives up to the title – most of these tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Gonet

Phasing News Vol 1
Tele Music/Be With (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A record that really takes on the "phasing" in the title seriously – as it uses all sorts of cool effects to create a special magic with simple sounds – all while managing to serve up some great funky nuggets too! The record's a masterpiece in both sound library ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lorenzo Morresi E Le Isole

Pop Flop
Space Echo (Italy), 2023. New Copy
A really cool little record – one that takes an older Italian sound library mode and reworks it with some of the contemporary flavor of the Schema label – but all with live instrumentation that's mighty nice all the way through! Lorenzo Morressi handles bass, guitar, and plenty of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harry Roche Constellation

Spiral (180 gram white vinyl pressing)
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of the grooviest records ever cut by Brit easy maestro Harry Roche – and a set that's got plenty of sweet 70s touches in the mix, at a level that really opens things up in a great way! The set's got some key Fender Rhodes from Alaln Branscombe, who has a very unique touch on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joel Vandroogenbroeck

L'Immagine Del Suono
Flirt/Musica Per Immagini (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A spooky space age fantasy put together by electronic music Joel Vandroogenbroeck as a sound library project – done right around the early years of his famous group Brainticket, but with a much more abstract quality overall! The tunes are sometimes groovy, but mostly fall on that darker side ... LP, Vinyl record album
678 Records (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy
A really great soundtrack from Dutch composer Pieter Verlinden – a set of short little tracks that's plenty heavy on keyboard work, and which features a fair bit of funky moments too! As with most non-commercial soundtrack recordings, the tracks here weren't given proper titles, as no record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Matt Berry

Simplicity
KPM/Acid Jazz (UK), 2023. New Copy
A really fantastic pairing of forces – as keyboard collector Matt Berry serves up a special set of instrumental tracks for the KPM sound library – many of which are done on the kinds of keys that KPM were recording back in the day! You might know Matt for his work on screen, but he's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janko Nilovic & The Soul Surfers

Maze Of Sounds
Broc (France), 2020. New Copy
A great pairing of funky talents old and new – 70s sound library legend Janko Nilovic on keyboards, and the totally hip Soul Surfers combo on rhythms – providing these great backdrops for some surprisingly wonderful work on organ, piano, and Rhodes from Janko! We'll confess, we didn't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Daniela Casa

Arte Moderna
Flipper/Cacophonic (UK), 1972. New Copy
Modern art, but of the sonic variety – served up here by composer Daniela Casa on a rare sound library album, but with a free-thinking quality that rivals the best of the avant garde at the time! Unlike some more staid, academic record, there's no overarching concept here – no detailed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
A fantastic array of really cool songs – all written and recorded by Tom Dawes of The Cyrkle – as part of a big career as a jingle writer after his group cut a famous theme song for 7 Up! The music here is great – work from a time when jingles for TV and radio ads were like mini ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2024. New Copy
One of the most keyboard-heavy sets in the excellent Madlib Invazion sound library series – a set that has all sorts of vintage keys and synth over lightly tripping grooves that are mighty nice! The approach is spacey and dreamy, yet still very funky – as the keys handle as much rhythm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2024. New Copy
A slightly different set than some of the others in this mighty nice series – in that this entry's got a vocalist – singer Lauren Santi, who brings some very soulful, wordless moments to the album! Mario Luciano handles a great range of keyboards, and the tunes have a lean, laidback ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2023. New Copy
A sound library set, but one that's got a grittier feel than most – and which ends up feeling a lot more like a stack of funky 45s overall! Gabriel Rowland hails from Los Yesterdays, and he definitely brings a current of west coast funk to the set – some Latin elements mixed with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2023. New Copy
Funky sounds from Dan Ubick of Connie Price & The Keystones – and a killer set in this excellent sound library series from Madlib! As with the other volumes, the music has a strong nod to the classic 70s era of sound library funk, but also updates the work strongly too – in this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Emil Amos

Zone Black
Drag City, 2023. New Copy
A contemporary project, but one that was initially intended for the legendary KPM Sound Library – and one that has Emil Amos serving up instrumentals that offer up his own take on classic sound library modes from years back! There's definitely more of a 21st Century vibe going on here at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Basic Group

Expander
Tic/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet keyboard-heavy sound library set from the 80s – a record from that time when the sound library studios had gone down to one or two man performances, instead of the fuller groups from the past – and were making best use of the keyboard and drum machine elements of the time to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sacred Bones, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
One of the coolest collections of work we've ever heard from the great Mort Garson – a selection of tracks that were done during the same years as his famous album releases in the world of moog and analog synth, but done for much more obscure sources that include television, film, and other ...

Branislave Zivkovic/Andre Tschaskowski

Emotionally
Coloursound Library/Be With (UK), 1986. New Copy (reissue)
A record from the more electronic years of the sound library scene – yet one that's also got a nicely sensitive side too, in a way that really lives up to its title! Both artists get plenty of space to serve up their songs – mostly shorter numbers in variations for most tracks – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Papworth

Hard Hitter
De Wolfe (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A heavy funk gem from the UK sound library scene – exactly the kind of record that makes digging for sound library records so great – filled with grooves that never saw the light of day on the mainstream market back in the 70s! Heavy drums rule the scene on many cuts – making the ... LP, Vinyl record album
