CHECK THE STOOL SAMPLES!
I have been an avid music collector for many years, so my collection is pretty ginormous. I try to get my hands and ears on everything musically that's worth hearing when I can. So, if you have something old or new worth checking out, make sure you let me know! Even though I really enjoy new artists and music, I spend a lot of my time listening to the sounds of the past. That classic music from the 70s & 80s that never gets old to me. In this predictable phase of soul and rap music today, producers are pretty much only using samples of yesterday's grooves to make beats. While a lot of old school music heads frown at this obvious thievery of the sounds from yesterday's past, it's a win-win situation for me. I get to hear some of my favorite old school tracks with a new school spin being added to it. Not every producer can make magic when it comes to blending the old with the new, but it happens it's something special.
Today, I am sharing some original samples that you may like? This post is actually a prequel to my next installment of the SOUNDNEXX SAMPLE LESSONS MIXX. Two of these samples were special requests by a few of my peoples, so I thought I would share them with everyone...
Freddie Scott - You Got What I Need ~ This sample was made famous by Biz Markie with his classic track "Just A Friend" back in the day.
Gary Byrd - Soul Travelin ~ This sample has been chipped apart by many producers in the past, but the most famous track to use it was Nasir's "Halftime" joint. I still remember when I first heard this classic joint on the 'Zebra Head' movie soundtrack back in the day. That's back when Nas still used the name Nasty Nas!
Jerry Butler - I'm Your Mechanical Man ~ This sample was made famous by Wu-Tang Clan's own Method Man on the track "Bring The Pain" from his debut album 'Tical' released in 1994.
Bill Withers - Rosie ~ This sample became popular when Kanye West used it on that "Roses" track off of his 'Late Registration' album.
Ronnie Laws - Tidal Wave ~ Can any of you folks guess who used this hot sample? There are two rap groups that I know of that used this joint, so lets see how musically inclined my SoundNexx visitors are.
