Sped-Up Soul Samples
Beat makers have been sampling soul samples forever. And they have been speeding up those samples for a couple decades easy.
It may have been Kanye and Just Blaze who did it so unapologetically (and effectively) on The Blueprint that thrust the technique into the spotlight. But it was nothing new.
As with anything, once everybody jumps on it, the sound gets "played out" and most people move on to the next thing.
Funny thing tho...
When you find a really interesting sample, chop it well, and surround it with the right drums...it's gonna work. That's as fundamental as a Tim Duncan bank shot.
Could dachin have done more with this track? Certainly. But I sorta like where he left it.
Figured I share it. What do you think?
