Rating: Blimey! Ugly Duckling’s Andy Cooper has only gone and done a ‘Chase The Sample’ Supermix of his recent solo 45 Room To Breathe starting with the JB drums sample and then whipping through any number of classic funk/ hip-hop breaks. If you want a free digital copy – all you have to do is sign up for Andy’s eartothetrack blog HERE. Easy as one, two, three!
If you want a free seven inch (I know!) all you have to do is be one of the first three people to contact Andy via Facebook, name all the samples from 0:22 to 3:30 and ‘explain’ the chain i.e. the connection between each consecutive sample. Andy even starts you off saying:
James Brown’s ‘Blind Man Can See It’ was sampled by Das EFX on ‘They want EFX’ which sampled EPMD’s ‘Underground’ which sampled Grover Washington’s ‘Hydra’ which was sampled by A Tribe Called Quest on ‘Check The Rhime’ which sampled Biz Markie’s ‘Nobody Beats The Biz’ which sampled Steve Miller’s ‘Fly Like An Eagle’ which was sampled by EPMD’s ‘You’re A Customer’…get the picture?
Well! He’s practically done the work for you.
