HipHop/SoulBounce: His Soulful Materials

hissoulfulmaterials.jpg The blend we present to you today is all about Soul samples. They've remained popular in Hip Hop for a reason--however they're reversed, sped-up, slowed-down, flipped, tweaked, or outright jacked--they provide a depth and texture. They also serve as a point of entry or discovery for a listener, depending on its obscurity. 

We know we've been hitting you with podcasts at lightspeed lately, but this one was simply too fly to sit on, especially since we've neglected our Hip Hop heads.

    pure greatness..after reading your sampling article from yesterday, THIS is how it should always be done!

  8. I love the article. You mentioned that sampling is a way to expose younger listeners to music which they would have otherwise had no utility. This article would have been more effective to me if the names of the original artists were listed in conjunctinon with the artists/tracks that sampled the music. Are they listed anywhere else on the site?
