Eclectic Method’s ‘A Brief History of Sampling’

Visual remix ace Eclectic Method – who in the past has turned his attention to such things as Quentin Tarantino, Monty Python and RoboCop – this time tackles some of the “most noted breaks and riffs of the decades” and their usage as it relates to popular music. In his own words it’s “A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the ’60s to the sample dense hip-hop and dance music of the ’80s and ’90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it.”
