Music Monday: The DNA of Music

Vinyl Records
Crate Digging

This week I decided to share a few songs that we’ve been listening in the office. Rather than throwing you guys some completely random tracks, I decided to pick a few with some prominent samples. I really enjoy samples because they can be a great way to discover new music, provide a sense of familiarity, shed some light on an artist’s influences, or simply give something new life. Samples can also cause headaches for artists as clearing them for albums is often a challenge. As you’ve probably noticed, some samples are more noticeable than others.

First up we have a pretty obvious and popular sample off Eminem’s new album.

Eminem – Rhyme or Reason


The Zombies – Time Of The Season


Next up, Danny Brown, the always entertaining/eccentric emcee.

Danny Brown – Grown Up 


Gorillaz – Tomorrow Comes Today


Party Supplies – A Perfect Life


Finally we have legendary producer and sample king, Dr. Dre.

Dr. Dre – Lil Ghetto Boy


Donny Hathaway – Little Ghetto Boy


KC & the Sunshine Band – I Get Lifted
