Hey, all! :)
I've been looking up samples used in songs I like, just out of curiosity - wanting to hear what the original thing sounds like. It has turned out to be a very interesting way of accidently staying up the whole night... :')
Sampling is a pretty widely used technique where an artist takes a snippet from another piece of music, modifies it and uses it in their own key. You can find samples in hiphop songs where it fills up the melody part, or you can find a ton of samples you can't even recognise from a song that is entirely constructed from samples.
One of the nice things I found from Utah Jazz' track "Take No More", a beautiful blues track:
I am curious if any of you are also into sampling or looking up where the sounds originate from. Would love to hear your favourite snippets. :)
