What's That Sample From???

by Travis on February 10, 2006


I’ve never been a DJ. My production sounds worse than two midgets beating on garbage cans full of howler monkeys. So needless to say I’ve never done much diggin’ in the crates if you knowhatimsayin. I like to think I’m fairly uppity up on my hip hop knowledge, but one area I’ve always lacked a lot of knowledge in was where all these samples come from. The sources for them. What’s the orginal composition sound like?

I credit my mom with installing the love of music in me. She listened to all types of music. Anything from Chuck Mangione (Flugelhorn player) to The Beatles, to any number of Jazz players. So while hip hop is my first love, I geniunely love music. In my earlier years, I could give a rip about the orginal compositions. But a few years ago I ran into a Tom Scott album, that included the song that Pete Rock sampled those horns on “T.R.O.Y” and wanted to find more about samples and where they came from.

There are more and more compulations popping up around that include these orginal songs. My man Casio Hardcore himself, aka Tommy B over at Miscreant Productions has hammered up one such of these Sample Source compulations. Free download, free music. Some classics….check it out
