DJ Slaughter Elly – Who Sampled Who mix

Last week as I was having a some beers in my local kafunda, I started thinking about sampling.

Sampling is when an artist takes a vocal snippet or a music loop from Old Skool song (especially those that were big hits) and repurposes it for use in their own song. For example J. Cole’s track “Adolescence” samples 2Pac and Notorious B.I.G’s “Running”.

It takes some real mastery to pull it off well. Many sampled songs are are ish ish. Their quality doesn’t come close to the original.

The use of samples is of course different from covers, even thought the two are mistaken a lot. In covers, an artist sings the same words and may use the same instrumental too. Covers are mainly used by reggae and dancehall artists. There are very few hiphop artists that do covers.

Since us DJ’s talk with our hands, I decided to perform a mix I have called #WhoSampledWho during my set on #SNMS this past Saturday.

Take a listen below and let me know what you think. Tracklist after the jump.
