Sampling in music refers to the use (either legally or illegally) of another artist's work to create or enhance a new recording. Although, it was first experimented with in the early 1960s, the practice did not reach the mainstream until twenty years later during the birth of Hip-Hop.

Since the pioneering work of Grandmaster Flash, sampling has been used in the studio to extract drum breaks, borrow bass lines and lift orchestral strings. Whether a sample includes a couple of notes or lasts up to 16 bars, it has been the cornerstone of Hip-Hop and House music for the last 25 years.
