The Classics with DJ PREMIER
Sample Sunday 024

Happy Easter everyone! ?

First of all, massive apologies about this weeks visuals - it appears as though Jesus has blessed me and given me a Godly glow. More likely, the blurriness is caused by either a fingerprint or possibly condensation.

DJ Premier was my biggest influence from the age of about 12 through until 16. Not only is his signature style the trademark for a lot of New York-based 90’s Hip Hop, but it’s also a staple in my earliest work as a music producer (yes, I produce(d) music).

It made sense this week to focus on Premier’s non-Gang Starr work as he will be hosting the Gods of Rap tour, where De La Soul, Public Enemy and Wu Tang Clan will all be performing in one single night! I’m going and I am super excited!

3 Feet High & Rising De La Soul Samples

De La Soul is the main reason I got into Hip Hop, and certainly my first step. De La Soul’s Three Feet High & Rising was the soundtrack to my childhood, specifically between the ages of 3 (as far back as I can remember) and 6. In 2019 and 2020 De La Soul have been...

Simon Says GET THE F*** UP

Pharoahe Monch is easily one of my top five favourite emcee’s. His use of Soul music, mixed with witty, intricate and often dark lyrics make his music an easy go-to any time I’m stuck for ideas. His album “W.A.R.” is by far one of the greatest Hip Hop albums ever...

Love J Dilla [Dilla Month!]

Dilla is, hands down, the greatest artist for me. Since discovering him at the age of ~15, I’ve never gone a week without listening to at least one record featuring or produced Jay Dee. Whenever I’m bored of music, I always switch back to listening to some Dilla. The...
