Example of Sampling

  1. Find an example of a song containing a direct audio sample of another song. I recommend using WhoSampled.com. Post links to both songs and explain how the sample was used. Does it form the basis of the beat? Is it a background texture? Does it run throughout the song or just appear once?

Drake’s famous song “Hotline Bling” sample the form of the basis of the beat from Timmy Thomas’s “Why Can’t We Live Together”. Although the rhythmic sequence was sampled, Drake used it with a faster tempo to build a background texture that runs throughout the whole song.

2. Find an example of a song containing a quotation or interpolation of another song, and post links to both of them.
