Sampling... This week I want to look into a more recent year in music history as requested in the comments on last week's 'Sample Digging Sunday', a weekly article about music from the past that can be a great source of inspiration. Maybe you end up finding one or two things to sample and use in your own music and if not, then I hope you at least enjoy finding music that you hadn't heard before. Therefore this is another 'Sample Digging Sunday' and this time about the year 1998.
So first of all back in 1998 I was 10 years old, probably either watching 'the Lion King' or playing outside with my toy cars or soccer ball, however I was amazed by how much music from 1998 actually stuck with me even though I was so young. Artists like Madonna, the Backstreet Boys and N*SYNC who were big at the time are probably what jumps to mind, however I found myself surrounded by the rise of Techno and Gabber music in Europe during the 90's. I've seen the European electronic music scene rise from nothing to what it is today and from day one I knew I wanted to be part of it, that it would end up like this I could've never imagined!
Still I find it great that all you guys watch my videos and listen to my music, so that's why I decided to start doing more of these articles as something extra to give back to you. So no further chatting... Let's move on to the first 'sample-worthy' material of this week!
