Top 10 | Best Non-Hip/Hop Tracks to Sample

Burrowed deep inside genres so far off from what the average Hip-Hop artist would go to first to sample, many would be surprised by how overlooked categories like folk, house, ambient, and lo-fi can make a significant difference in how sound can progress during the building process of project in motion. I have compiled a short list of some atypical tracks from even greater musicians who are guaranteed to give your next project the knock in the jaw that will break of stiff spinned listeners. The list goes as follows.

EARFLOAT Mixtape Series

I noticed that a lot of music blogs and sites host mixtapes made with tracks from various up-in-coming artists, mash-ups from DJs, or indie bands that receive no sunshine from The Industry. But their compilations never truly resemble anything like an actual mixtape – a set of songs that sound as personal as a toothbrush, carefully arranged together by the selection’s owner and then offered back to others who aren’t afraid to use a pal’s toothbrush and are fearless in experimenting with dental hygiene from their mouth’s point of view.
