the Art of the Sample 2

Remember Jock Jams? Don't even play like you didn't own one of these compilation CD's from the 80s. Believe it or not, those Jock Jam hits were birthed from previous songs i.e. samples such as;

"This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan, which was sampled from the classic 1988 joint entitled Children's Story by none other than the man the ruler Slick Rick.

The Bucketheads dance track entitled "The Bomb" was actually taken from  Chicago's "Street Player". This classic trumpet riff was then re-sampled and used in the 2009 release by Pitbull "I Know You Want Me".

Sampled, reused and packaged neatly... The repetitive cycle of music production.
