Sample Spotter

A man after my own heart:

Ever since I heard Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight, with the bass line from Chic’s Good Times, I’ve been a sucker for creative sampling. Apart from the occasional home-brew sampling experiment, I also like to collect original songs of well known samples. James Brown, Diana Ross, Patrice Rushen, Cymande, … I’ve just got to have them on CD or vinyl.
So here I want to talk about the sampled and the samplers, the originals and the re-users, sometimes focusing on a certain artist, a genre, a trend or an example of exceptional skill.
