From the sunny streets of Cali to the brick city blocks of Newark, New Jerusalem soul-hop artist MoRuf never disappoints with a sick drop of a freestyle, “mosdef.(freestyle)”, over Mos Def’s smooth instrumental, “May-December.”
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.
Because I have an eclectic ear for music, I’ve heard far and beyond of the sorts of sounds contemporary artists try to emulate in synthetic beat making. I compiled a diverse list of 10 songs that I believe would make for brilliant samples. Feel free to take me up on the suggestion and surprise me with a track or even a whole album to review based on your sampling execution style. Check out the list below, share your thoughts, and start creating!
