This is a collection of original songs that have been sampled many times for their amazing breakbeats. You’ll hear the samples in hip hop, pop, jungle, drum and bass, dance and a lot of other modern genres of music, but let’s not forget that they’re all amazing songs in their own right. Proper songs, played by proper musicians!
It’s by no means an exhaustive list. I hadn’t meant for it to be as long as it is, but my research unearthed classic after classic and I didn’t want to leave any of them out.
Notable by their absence are some all time greats. The Winston’s “Amen Brother” and Skull Snaps “It’s a new day” and The Honeydrippers “Impeach the president”. I’m sure there are many more. Let’s hope Spotify will eventually rectify this!
This playlist ought to appeal to anyone interested in making music by sampling. I hope you learn something listening to it. I did.
