Eclectic Method – A Brief History of Sampling

Eclectic Method (Facebook, Twitter) mixen sich durch 50 Jahre Sampling-Geschichte. Danach kann man sich dann nochmal dieses 20minütige Video von Nate Harrison über den Amen-Break ansehen, das Teil einer Installation von ihm war.

A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.
