Sampling is why this site exists so here is a quick sample of some great sampling. The first case is where R.L. Burnside sampled a very small section of horns from War’s “Lowrider” to make an entirely new and more fast paced track, It’s Bad You Know. Both of these songs are great and give a great example of how quality sampling is done.
The next example is a bit more entertaining, where Hip-Hop group Cypress Hill sampled the soft guitar riff from Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man” and ground it down to become their hit track, Hits From the Bong. I’m sure Dusty would be proud.
Well I hope you all learned something here today, as great sampling makes great music.
