DJ GrantLOVE’s Sample Sessions: Funky Blues

So this will be my fourth year of making online mixes, and I have to say that this is the year I become relevant in the world of music. For the last four years I have relegated myself to Original Samples. I consider an original sample a piece of music that has been chopped, sampled, sped up, slowed down, or interpolated.

Hip-Hop was born on Original Samples. From the SugarHill Gangs “Rappers Delight” sample of Chic’s “Good Times” to Lil Wayne’s use of David Axelrods “Holy Thursday.” It would be impossible for me, or anyone else to have a complete list of samples that have been used in all genres of music. My mission is to bring attention to the Originals, in their full length glory…in most cases.

Some of the Originals in this mix have been used only once, several others have been used numerous times.I hope you enjoy this mix of Funky Blues.

Remember as always…”It’s not old, if it’s NEW to you!”


Peace & Love, dj grantlove head shot
