Eclectic Method Delivers A Brief History Of Sampling


Eclectic Method drops A Brief History Of Sampling - an informative clip that mines the craft of sampling from the emergence of the Mellotron in the 60's to break-heavy classics that became the pillars of hip-hop during the 80's and 90's. The video remix runs through some of the most iconic beats and breaks to illustrate the omnipresence of certain sounds, drum fills, and soul samples across hip-hop, pop and other genres. Eclectic Method effectively truncates the massive chronology of the art into an animated video that includes classic video clips and clocks in just above 3 minutes. Check the footage below to watch Eclectic Method's A Brief History Of Sampling.
