This is a Hip-Hop based blog that is focused around what producers know as “sampling.” Sampling is the process of taking an already existing form of audio and re-fashioning it into a new song or sound. Musicians sample a huge variety of sounds, songs and genres to make records. In Hip-Hop, sampling started through producers who would take old soul records from the 60’s and 70’s and use them to create beats for artists to rap over. This blog will contain examples of various famous producers and artists and how they utilize sampling to create their music. It will also contain content created by myself, a music producer, alongside with the records I have used to make my songs.
