about

'Ride The Samples' is a project that pays tribute to some of the original songs that - thanks to sampling - later became the building blocks of world-famous hip-hop classics.

Hearing these 8 famously sampled soul classics re-arranged in reggae style reveals how soul and reggae are deeply interconnected. When the first sound systems were born in jamaica, they used to play a lot of R&B and soul tunes from the states, the melodies and sounds of which, went on to influence the new wave of Jamaican music from ska, to rocksteady and then reggae.

In a similar way we find parallel influences in the States, where - in late 70’s Bronx - newly born hip-hop was deeply influenced by Jamaican immigrants with their street art of ‘dee-jaying’ (or 'toasting') over instrumental riddims.

‘Ride The Samples’ is our way of keeping this powerful mix of genres together, celebrating the original soul samples on which world-famous hip-hop classics are based.
