In conjunction with Et Musique Pour Tous, every Saturday I will be posting a song that was produced using a sample, along with the original record.
After using a Yvonne Fair song as the hidden track on Live From New York, I started to listen to her music regularly. When I reached the 0:55 mark of â€œLet Your Hair Downâ€ I knew I had come across a very familiar measure of music. Â Twenty-two years after begin recorded, this bar was looped to create the beat for Jay-Zâ€™s â€œWhere Iâ€™m Fromâ€ off of his second album, In My Lifetime Vol. 1. Â The slightly sped-up loop somehow sets the tone for a dark hip hop record, quite the contrast from its funky origin. Â Recently, the sample was re-used for the Dirty Money single â€œAngels Callingâ€ featuring Notorious B.I.G.
