A BRIEF HISTORY OF MUSIC SAMPLING

If you are a music junky like me, it’s always interesting to hear/learn where certain beats and song hooks are sampled from, and to be honest, it’s sort of amazing just how many great songs can be linked back to only a few originals (I mean, for christ sake, The Winstons’ Amen Brother literally has thousands of samples used from it).

And this very brief history of samples (from Eclectic Method) not only tackles the evolution of sampling from “the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s [Vimeo]” it also showcases various songs that used those original beats to make their own better.

So get your dancing shoes on and check out the video after the break…and yes, your ass cheeks will be moving.
