A one week only (Update: video has expired) online screening of the Dublab film Secondhand Sureshots. Producers Daedelus, Ras G, Nobody, and J.Rocc set out on a supreme crate digging and production mission.
Four producers, five dollars, five records, strictly sampling. Each producer lets loose some of their vinyl digging guidelines and preferences, then heads to his personal studio for some beatmaking magic.
This the beauty of sampling. We can act like we have a lot more than we have. You can fake it. It’s beautiful.
If it feels like there’s nothing open about the song. If it feels done, then I won’t sample it. The game isn’t to make it unrecognizable. The game is to make it your own. - Daedelus
