Building a Classic with a Batch of Samples

DJ Shadow’s 1996 Endtroducing… is a masterpiece of sound collage and turntable skills and still sounds incredible 12 years later. The sheer number of samples place this album up there with the Beastie Boys “Paul’s Boutique” and Public Enemy’s “Fear of a Black Planet”. And now blog Goons Dancing Under Full Moons has compiled all the samples into one large 250mb file for educational purposes.

This was a monster. When I saw the sample list I almost gave up before I started. These samples took me to the bowels of the internet and on the way I think I learned enough German and Portuguese to talk my ass out of a fight. If I tried to remember and list all of the different blogs and forums that helped me in my search my brain would bail out my ears. So here goes nothing and everything. 70 mthrfckng samples.

Interesting artists on the list: Metallica, Tangerine Dream, Meredith Monk, Roger Waters, Alan Parsons Project. Who knew?
