sorry that it’s off topic, and if you don’t understand why i would be excited about this, i totally understand. – but know that i love hip hop, and i love finding the original sample sources which hip hop is constructed from – and i had to share it with someone.
sunday morning in need of some new pants and shirts i hit the value village on woodward. like most shopping trips this ended without that which i had gone in search of but did end up picking up a couple of records, one a jazz fusion record by the band ananta called wheels of time from 1978. i picked it up mostly because it was on a hare krishna record label and featured plenty of keyboards.
took it home and gave it a listen, it was pretty terrible but something peaked my interest on the last track on the first side – wheel of time.
you can listen to the whole track or just move ahead to about the 5 min. mark. i listened to it a couple of times thinking i knew it had been sampled by someone, but this just seemed too random and unlikely. but i kept thinking about the new black milk record and song gospel psychedelic rock
so i listened to the black milk song, and amazingly enough i was pretty certain it was sampled. listen for yourself it’s right at the beginning but then the guitar repeats throughout.
i quick internet search didn’t confirm that black milk sampled this, but i think that it just proves how producers guard their there samples, and how few folks are listening to hare krishna fusion jazz and black milk.
