  • Your favourite sample/loop of all time?

    Mine is quite possibly the vibes sample/loop on this:



    Hadn't heard it in an age and then today it came on the headphones off one of my old mixtapes and I started grinning from ear to ear. The sample is taken from "don't put me on" this:




    So, what are yours? Your own sample/loops are excluded from this exercise...

            wow, always assumed the Red Astaire sample was Cal Tjader or someone, would never have guessed it was on Avenue!


            The Charmels is a great one, also always loved the Wendy Rene sample on "Tearz".

            Never been a huge fan of Illmatic, but "Represent" is great, and I love the Thief of Baghdad sample:

              Because it's a big hit with Mrs SK I'm going to say the big chunk of Pentangle on this


              I also liked the sample of, what sounded to me like the bass intro from 'Another Night' by Dionne Warwick that was used on Pizzicato 5's 'Twiggy Twiggy'.

                  Wow - that Charmells track is fabulous - and the way it's been sampled/looped is excellent - but like a lot of hip hop for me - the rap kind of spoils it.

                  Have always wondered where the "twiggy twiggy" bass line comes from - thanks SK.

                  Oh and Cacapo - I know the Rene Costy tune - but give me a hint as to the best sample/loop then? *awaits a deluge of answers*

                    the looping is deceptively simple on that - some of the loops actually start on the 2nd beat of the bar in the original

                    there's loads of good instrumental stuff up on youtube nowadays - search for beat tapes and you can lose yourself for hours with J Dilla, 9th Wonder, etc

                    has been sampled a few times, but I think Cacapo was thinking of this Dilla track:

                      Dilla has never quite hit the spot for me before - but maybe time to revisit? I do like some instrumental hip hop - Madlib for example - this one is a favourite beat/loop/sample of his:

                        If it was these drums that Future Sound of London half-inched for Papua New Guinea, then this one I guess:

                            Another one of mine is the main sample on this epic Gentle People remix by Aphex Twin:



                            But until yesterday when this arrived, I had no idea what it was from:

                            https://www.discogs.com/Henry-Mancin...elease/4300437

                            blue mantilla - henry mancini



                            Now I just need someone to point me towards the great string sample(s) please...
