Sampleface wouldn’t be Sampleface without the art of sampling. Producers know the feeling when they listen to a track and they just hear that hook/riff/break/loop in their head. This practice formed the foundations of hip hop and can still be found today (albeit via differing means). But before all the copyright bullshit, sampling was done freely and this documentary made by an Australian TV station back in 1988 shows us the ins and outs before the laws were changed to regulate it. Look out for a young Coldcut, Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff and Ice T as well as other classic musicians from that time.
