these are all classic trance anthems not just sampled but used as the basis of the whole track. Wiz samples
Better Off Alone
Jackie Chan samples
who is shawty lo sampling? it sounds like digweed....really really epic rolling kind of full effect? i swear its something from the Groove soundtack.
anyway this makes me happy, i used to love that shit and now i enjoy it again, and its totally different. its so much more about people on drugs than the originals, which we about having that experience without seeing people as if they were on drugs.
its funny also that the roots of hip hop and electronic music are so shared, but then went so far apart that at the time these songs originally came out hip hop was so much more about funk samples with gangsta lyrics focussing on drinking and killing, but now the south is lettin us know about life like it is in terms of people and getting high and being stupid.
different again from
Harder Better Stronger Faster
where we find the basis for a kind of percept in daft punk, and get a daft punk revival leading to nice memories repackaged like
Technologic (FRACTAL remix)
One More Time (Breaks Remix) [Cut & Run 2007]
which turns a really nice soundscape and engine into a listenable song.
