So many cool Sampler Kits in one track! Thanks for sharing where you got those samples from and how you managed to create new instruments that sound in tune, it only amazed us even more. Such a beautiful melody too. Fork it now and check out her awesome Sampler Kits!

Your #Fridaythe13 winner Sarah Cleary‘s got us all spooked with Lights Out! Here’s what our judges had to say:

Beautifully Haunting! With her soothing voice, Sarah puts us at ease and keeps us ripe for goosebumps with her dynamic shifts into screams and added effects. Her beat is clever and sinister to give that eerie feeling of surprise. ‘Tis Spooky!
