Stuck at your desk today at lunch? Need to get your Electrohouse on for a few minutes? I’m not sure if director Ron Winter created this “bangin” browser sample player or it’s from someone else. Nevertheless it’s a good five minute time waster. To try it out: click here
“In music, sampling is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or a different sound recording of a song. The wide spread use of sampling in popular music originated with the birth of hip hop music in New York in the 1970s. This is typically done with a sampler, which can be a piece of hardware or a computer program. Sampling is also possible with tape loops or with vinyl records on a phonograph. Often “samples” consist of one part of a song, such as a break, used in another, for instance the use of the drum introduction from Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks” in songs by the Beastie Boys, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mike Oldfield, Rob Dougan, Coldcut, Depeche Mode and Erasure, and the guitar riffs from Foreigner’s “Hot Blooded” in Tone L?c’s “Funky Cold Medina”. – wikipedia.org/Sample
