The producer and multi-instrumentalist Davor Devcic aka D3 writes:
"I started to listen funk'n'soul records when I was 15 years old back in 1981. I was seduced by the rich harmonies and arrangements of Quincy Jones, Kashif (producer of Melba Moore and Evelyn King), Jay Graydon (Al Jarreau), Tommy LiPuma (George Benson), Earth, Wind and Fire and many others.
My musical taste grew not only from mainstream funk'n'soul, but, more importantly for my house music foundations, from what is called the "Disco Underground". Those rare grooves founded on funk, soul and jazz left a big mark on my musical knowledge. Alphons Mouson, Shakatak, Light of the World, George Duke, early S.O.S. band, Eumir Deodato, to name but a few. My whole musical biography is in fact a constant search for that fantastically creative sound.
Right in the middle of creating Classic Disco I made one or two slower construction kits and thus the idea for the next sample library naturally evolved in my mind: to make similar project with a down-tempo feel, with bpms from 60 to 100bpm, in the smooth style that is so familiar to me - the funk 'n' soul from that great 1977 – 1987 period. I have listened to these harmonies and grooves for decades and I think that I have given you that spirit and sound."

"Satin Grooves is one of Zero-G’s best ever titles. All of its 34 construction kits are an absolute pleasure just to listen to, let alone pull apart for creative application. The main style focuses on the flair of 70s and 80s funk and soul music, and it really doesn’t get any more authentic than this. All of the live instruments have been captured with the finest care to really nail that retro sound, but with all the benefits of today’s high-fidelity standards. As well as the kits, there are extra loops in five more categories, and all sounds have been recorded at mouthwatering 24bit quality. Rated: 10 out of 10"

"Think ‘80s Motown, think Rick James, think mid-tempo Funk-Soul and Disco. 34 construction kits plus a load of drum loops, guitar, bass, pianos and synths should offer something for most producers of Hip Hop, R&B or Disco-influenced Dance. Like all Zero G sample packs, you get everything in all the major formats. It’s expensive for a single DVD, but it still gets full marks! Rated: 10 out of 10"
