Sampling 101 with the ARE

In case you're not that into "sampling" but always wanted to know exactly how someone can take music that's not their's and make it sound like something original, here you go. the ARE is one of our independent fav's. Part of the team that has brought you rappersiknow.com these guys are definitely purveyors of good music. I've always been of the mindset that instruments trump sampling and electronics every time (remnants of an old band nerd or 'the truth' you decide) but slowly people are bringing me around to the talent it takes to hear a new composition within and existing piece of work. All this while making sure there's no notable reference to the original work. Don't take my word for it though. Watch for yourself. Part 1 Part 2 Download the ARE - Still Climbing EP
