Dance Electronic Sampling

That time Justice sampled a Mac OSX sound effect

It’s the little things, you know?

On Justice’s debut album, Cross (or Justice on digital platforms for some reason), is a track called Newjack which is possibly my favourite. It samples You Make Me Wanna Wiggle by The Brothers Johnson which is obvious to those who know the song but one sample that I had no idea about was this:

iLife 2006 Sound Effects - Computer Data 03

You can hear it on Newjack at the 1:35 mark:

Justice - Newjack - † (Official Audio)

It’s a subtle sound that only iLife users back in 2006 would have known but it underpins a lot of the second and third segments of the song and I love it. Justice really are kings of micro chops.
