    Listening to Waterproof London‘s brilliant new album of mash-ups: who would have thought that Jay-Z and Dolly Parton or Dire Straits and Ce Ce Penistone would get along so nicely. #mashup

    Steinski: Let’s dance to the drummer’s beat 

    Before the likes of 2ManyDJs, Streetlife DJs, M/A/R/R/S, Bomb the Bass, Coldcut, DJ Shadow, The Glimmers and all the other laconic cut-ups, there was only Steinski. Along with his original partner, Double Dee, he made some of the earliest “sample records” and burned so beautifully bright in the early-eighties. Steinski and Double Dee delivered the possibility of making totally original music comprised of samples. Surprisingly, the pair never had a hit record and their music has never been widely available, due to their use of copyrighted material sampled from other records. A practice that is absolutely commonplace now, but was practically unheard of then. Now Steinski is back with a long overdue retrospective.

    The following three links, from their History of Hip Hop series (approximately 1983-1985) were found on the consistently excellent Silence is a Rythmn Too, one of the best MP3 blogs doing the rounds.

    Lesson 2 (James Brown Mix)
