Quick post, but an awesome post.

Ambient, soulful, electronic, fairly kickass. After seeing Quadron mentioned in my timeline a few days ago by some great friends, I was quickly reminded of how amazing Quadron is, and how I have not yet made a post to appreciate that awesome. A Denmark Duo, these kids have been churning out jams for the better part of the last two years. And if they can keep sounding like this, I will keep acting like I care.

Yeah.
Ima go listen to this for a while. You guys tell me what you think. And its real easy with disqus down there now. lol.

Chris Brown's "Beautiful People" is a Benny Benassi Beat. This explains why I secretly dance like I'm at a rave when no one is around. Links:

Sample Appreciation Post – Pitbull: “Calle Ocho” = Nicola Fasano & Pat Rich: “75 Brazil Street” = The Bucketheads: “The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind)” = Chicago: Street Player. Oh Yeah.

Since they came up with the original, they get the default photo.

Wow. I love twitter. Why? Because I can always log on, bring up one cool song, and have my network of amazing nerds point out a bazillion different things about this one song that I never knew. Most of the time, I forgot the song even existed. (LOL)

Which leads us to the beginning. While mentioning my appreciation Afro/Afro-Latin Beat samples in hip hop, and using the Sample done in Pitbull’s “Calle Ocho” as example (shoutout to Wale and “My Sweetie” also), it became painfully obvious to me that I was not aware of the name of the song sampled for the Horned out chorus sequence. From there, A great friend (hey @Jtronic) quickly pointed out that the song is a direct sample of an awesome House song from 1995 called  “The Bomb!” (by “The Bucketheads”) I had almost forgotten how cool this song was up until this point. Good save, J.
Now just when I thought the fun was over, @RyenDavid points out that this song is ALSO a sample of ANOTHER song called 75 Brazil Street, which is a song that Pitbull mentions in the beginning, but I never caught onto until now. Done by Nicola Fasano and & Pat Rich, this also contains a sample from “The Bomb”, Linking all three together.

But were STILL NOT DONE! (lol)

After digging even further, I find out that ALL of these songs circle around one main theme built from a Chigago song called Street Player. Recorded in the early seventies, and supposedly a hard vinyl to find,   Street Player seems to be the source of all three songs, built into one awesome jazzed out rock jam.

Sampling EPICNESS.

Geek out, find the links, have fun.

Then theres this awesome version of Street Player done by Chaka Khan and Rufus that Mom pointed out. Its the most covered song ever.

But were STILL NOT DONE! (lol)
