Music is a constantly changing form that can be rethought through genre, production techniques and new technologies. In the 1940’s, Music Concrete sparked a new technique and style of creating experimental music out of recorded materials found in the real world. Fast-forward 30 years and sampling became the driving force in Hip Hop that has become a mainstay and helped to shape modern music across genre.

Digging a layer deeper to find the original tracks that have been sampled over the years has always piqued the interest of our ECD, Connor Moore. Take a listen to our new playlist that shows the original tracks that have been sampled by artists like Danger Mouse, Jamie XX and Pete Rock.
