About the show

Playing tracks by

Don Covay, The Three Degrees, The Emotions, James Brown, Dave & Ansell Collins and more.

As Yeezus fever grips the internet ahead of tomorrow's official release of Kanye's electronic opus, we thought it a perfect opportunity to review some of the source material that has made Kanye consistently one of our site's most popular artists. With a nod to the quirky sources of the forthcoming Yeezus and the trademark vocal chops of Cruel Summer, we revisit the early years of the Soul on 45 sound that made his debut LP a timeless classic and reference his wholesale reworkings of classics from the likes Curtis Mayfield, Ray Charles, Otis Redding and others: A whistle-stop tour of some of our favourite moments in the career of the poster boy for contemporary popular sample based Hip Hop.

Check out the tracklist together with sample credits over on the WhoSampled blog: http://wp.me/pkLFq-rs

Mixed by: Chris Read (MusicOfSubstance)
