The soundbank, aka "La boite a sons", is chock full of samples, loops and acapellas hand-crafted by the label's talented artists & collaborators. French dub-masters like Volfoniq, Arrogalla (of the Nootempo collective out of Sardinia, Italy), Disrupt (founder of Jahtari the 8bit dub netlabel), Jambassa, Taiwanese hip-hop group Kou Chou Ching, Peak and Vinlette. The sample packs include "bits of folkloric isntruments, reggae a cappella from Spain, hiphop a cappella from Taiwan, synth loops, drum loops and kits, lo-fi dub, electronics, organ slices..."
You can check out the sample packs here, hosted by ccMixter, along with the contest rules and info about each artist who has contributed to the soundbank thus far.
Highlights from the composition contest will be featured here at the Free Music Archive, and in a net release on LCL. More info after the jump, and you can enjoy some sounds from LCL's FMA collection below
