Playing tracks by
Jocko, McFadden & Whitehead, Ini Kamoze, Taana Gardner, Eric B. & Rakim and more.
Here’s another history lesson in sampling by your favourite teacher! ;-) This mix starts with most likely the first recorded rap record in history. It’s by a guy named Jocko and the track was released on Philadelphia International Records. He borrowed the beats from McFadden & Whitehead’s classic which came out on the same label (so there were no troubles about infringement of copyright). From there you can hear a lot of similarities between the songs. One of the key tracks is ‘The champ’ by the Mohawks which appears in a couple of songs. The last track is my attempt to remix the new Bryan Ferry single in a Funkadelic house groove (or something like that…). Enjoy! More info, music and useful links on www.professoreddy.blogspot.com
