Welcome back folks! It’s time for another edition of Beat Class, the only educational series to give you the knowledge of a producer’s sample repertoire first-hand. Yes, many front to protect themselves and their intellectual investments, but not me because, let’s face it, you’re not gonna pay for this shit anyway, right? And if I ever get sued, I can just claim fair-use on grounds of educational purposes.
Indeed, I think I’m pretty smart and now you can too by schooling your friends (who I’m sure are HUGE Juicy the Emissary fans since you won’t shut up about me to them) on what samples were used in the song you insisted on playing while they nod politely, intermittently interjecting a reassuring “wow” or “that’s awesome,” patiently waiting for it to end so they can put on their new favorite Lady Gaga song that they just discovered while shopping at the grocery store.
So here goes: in today’s class we will take a look at “From the Cradle,” which is featured on Chris H’s 2008 release Systematic, which, if you haven’t heard, is a thesis on complex biological processes and their implications in the day-to-day life of advanced, or not-so-advanced, species.
Beat Class #2: From the Cradle
Stevie Wonder – Maybe Your Baby
The New Birth – Pretty Words Don’t Mean a Thing (Lie to Me)
The Nite-Liters – Con-Funk-Shun
So this concludes our latest session of Beat Class. Before you ask, yes, this will be on the test, comments, questions, and observations are due below the post, and no, I will not make out with you.
*Bonus*: Extra points for anyone who can name the movie sampled at the end.
