Mr. Oizo - "Two takes it"

Welcome back!
Reading one of the best "samples finding" blog I was quite exciting to discover that:

Last Mr. Oizo album Lamb's anger contains al lot of smashing songs, one of this is Two Takes It feat. Carmen Castro

The vocal part is a sample taken from It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock

Of course, the father of all this beats and samples is 1972 track: Think (About it) by Lyn Collins

Listen at 1:37

Now let's go back to Mr. Oizo; the brass riff part is sampled from You Know How To Love Me by Phyllis Hyman

Flo Rida feat. Kesha - "Right Round"

Hello guys! We are starting a brand new week and this is our new sample found.

Today we are talking about a big commercial hit that is spinning on radio these days: he's Flo Rida and the song is Right Round (feat. Kesha) from his new album R.o.o.t.s.

In this Mtv interview he says that when he was young he's been inspired by 80's music, thanks to his 7 sisters. And so, here it is!

Listen to this song, and find where all the Flo Rida ideas come from...
This is Dead or Alive , it was 1989 , and the song was called You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)

I prefer the original version, though. 80s sounds rules!

Breakbot - "Penelope Pitstop"

I remeber a couple of years ago, I was wandering on MySpace, searching for great music, and founded Tvyks, a Czech Republic dj and producer.
I listened to How much is the milk?, show some love to this track, and Tvyks himself mail me this song.
That's amazing.

Today, I found a video of Penelope Pitstop by Breakbot on Youtube.

I think Breakbot has been inspired by Tvyks song for the bassline of this track!
And now I even love it more!

They're Death in Vegas and the song's called Hands around my Throat taken from their 2002 album Scorpio Rising.

The instrumental intro part is sampled from Whitewater by Tortoise, taken from A Digest Compendium Of The Tortoise's World 1996 album.

You can listen to a preview of this song here!

Busy P - Rainbow Man

Hello guys!
Searching for Italo Disco tracks on YouTube we can find a lot of amazing and inspirational sounds.
We can say that Italian "B Movie" is to Quentin Tarantino as Italo Disco is to New French Electro Scene, right?

This morning I'm in love with a 1984 track:"Music Colours" by Cellophane, an 80's italian duo formed by Alessandro Novaga and Giorgio Paganini.

I think that Busy P took a lot of inspiration from this Cellophane song, for his "Rainbow Man", both for the intro part and for the album artwork in which we can find the color spectrum of the rainbow!

Italians do it better! lol
