Original Sample Hunt – DJ Seduction – Sub Dub

Hello from the Postman
  I’m creating a new segment called Original Sample Hunt, which is all about the vocal samples in Jungle and DnB tunes and finding the original track. On Sundays show we had a discussion about a tunes vocal sample and I thought that finding original tunes from the vocal samples might be a nice addition to the blog.

  I kick things off with a tune that sparked this idea in my head “DJ Seduction – Sub Dub”.

This tune has a lovely female vocal sample in it that is from a tune called “Bumble – West In Motion (Haunted Mix)”.

That seems to be the original track that the female vocalists sample is first heard on, but if we do a little digging, we find out that the vocalist is called Maddy Prior and the song is an old folk song called “Bushes and Briars”. Here is a lovely website that has loads more info on the folk songs origins.

If you like this kind of sample searching, give me suggestions of tracks that I should find the originals to. I am not making any promises that this will be a consistent feature of the blog, but if I find tracks that might interest people, I will write about them.

  1. Up until *just now* I never paid close attention to the actual lyrics; but this has been a fascinating short journey.

    I am already looking forward to the next segment 🙂

  2. Thanks for adding bringing those links out, maybe they weren’t that clearly spotted in the text. I wasn’t quite sure whose vocal was used is what mix and which track at the time.

  3. As far as i am aware dj seduction actually sampled Maddy Prior’s version of ‘Bushes & Briars’ which is a rare rendition that was on a readers digest cd sent in the junk mail to his house.It is indeed hard to find biut i did find an mp3 of it quite a few years back and will try and post Maddy’s rendition to clear things up.

  4. If you can find and upload it, that would be lovely, I love original vocal samples. If you can find it and want to send it so I can post it here, let me know, I’ll send you a e-mail.
