Selectabwoy – Hip-Hop for the Hardcore Heads

Selectabwoy :- Yo. Here’s the next instalment in my series of sample-source mixes. This time we’re rewinding back to the late 80’s/early 90’s with a quality selection of old skool US and UK hip-hop (and a bit of hip-house thrown in). This started off as a quest to compile heavily-sampled tracks used in the early 90s rave/hardcore/jungle scenes, but then evolved a bit more into a listening experience, and I ended up throwing in a handful of lesser-sampled tracks as they had the right kind of vibe.

I’ll leave most of the sample-spotting to you. But this time around, besides the vocals and direct samples, there’s also a few original and second generation drum breaks up in the mix. Check Paris’ ‘Make Way For A Panther’ for the original ‘Angel’ break, Run DMC for the ‘Sound In Motion’ and ‘Some Justice’ drum loops… and Tuff Crew for ‘Hurt U So’ 🙂

Really enjoyed putting this one together, so I hope you enjoy listening. I had genuinely forgotten how good these tracks are – not to mention the ones that sampled them… high time to dust off my ‘92 collection and have an old skool rinse-out 🙂

Selectabwoy – Mid-90s Hip-Hop/R&B Mix (For The Junglist Sample Spotters)


(download above in player)

Selectabwoy :- “I’ve had this mix in mind since hearing the Sing Time sample in Mary J’s ‘Be Happy’ leap out at me while shopping for paint in Wilko several years ago. A selection of golden era hip-hop and R&B gems, all of them (with one exception*) sampled on various jungle/DnB tracks in the mid-90s. Some are subtle, others, notably ‘How High’, were sampled to death. I’ll add that although most of these tracks I’ve known and loved for years, a few were new to me, hunted down for this purpose. Hope you enjoy, please leave me a comment if you’re feeling it… I could do with some motivation to work on similar mixes for hardcore/rave and breakbeat samples that I have vaguely sketched out :-)”
