I just stumbled across these. Some great videos on YouTube showing all the original samples from a load of dance classics. I knew quite a few of these sources already but there are loads here that I’ve never heard before. Check them out…
Totally awesome tune from Aleem who I know absolutely nothing about. Once again played to me by the same mate who had the Foster Sylvers tune. Another one that’s been sampled for a slightly more obscure track – C.M.C’s – Let Loose on one of my favourite hardcore labels, Ibiza Records.
I absolutely love this style of 80s electronic soul and really wish I knew more of the track names. If anyone has some recommendations then post ’em in the comments. I need more of this sort of stuff in my collection!
A friend of mine showed me this tune years back after picking it up second hand. Apparently a well known old skool tune in its field I recognised the intro from M-Beat’s jungle track, Style.
Performed and released when he was only 11 years old Foster Sylvers was part of a family of singers & songwriters, similar to the Jacksons, so I’m told. This was his first hit and has also been sampled on many Hip Hop tracks, according to Google.
I guess I could do these posts for years, especially seeing as we have thousands of them posted over at the rolldabeats sample forum but I might try to do a few more non-dnb/jungle/hardcore ones here when I come across them
Massive one here, anyway.
Everyone who has ever heard a jungle tune (or watched Father Ted ;] ) should know this one
