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.
