Late night after party grooving…
1. Adam F – Smash Sumthin (Roni Size Remix)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR-eY9mIECQ
The original is pretty good. Roni Size, lol, enough said.
2. 2 Pac – Painhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSgkBF6LjH4
Unlike many of the main stream artists in the 90’s, 2 Pac was an artist that had a message. This particular song is very powerful. Production is great, and sample is brilliant!
3. Armand van Helden Feat Tekitha – Mother Earthhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjJEsOtwSAU
This, to me, is the modern day, “The Message.” The words!
4. Todd Terry – Sambahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCsX-bxok1M
Todd Terry… That is all!
5. The Prodigy – The Poisonhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mej5wS7viw
– I don’t think they made a bad track ever.
6. Ian Pooley – Bay of Plentyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YmLUmGOukU
I saw him play in Boston when he was touring for his “Since Then” album and was probably one of those memorable sets I’ve ever heard. Ian is a true original and amazing artist.
7. Alan Braxe & Fred Falke – Love Losthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pFMTk-BQHk
I spotted this vinyl in Miami many years ago. It was one-side only and had a cool design on the other side with no music. I am hoping to hear these two make magic again one day! 8. Modjo – What I Mean (Aloud Mix)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th9sTgs2Upk
That vocal gets me everytime!
9. A Tribe Called Quest – After Hourshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcwaMuq5XLU
One of the reasons I got fascinated with sampling is this album and De La Soul’s “3 Feet High and Rising”.
10. Donald Byrd – Think Twicehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJHFc3Mv-4Y
This song is just flawless from beginning to end.
