VISUAL CAFFEINE-Episode 27-SAMPLES MIX

New VISUAL CAFFEINE!!

This month SEN-ONE6 takes a few classic Hip-Hop beats, and shows you the inspiration behind those beats. This is the essence of Hip-Hop culture. It began with two turntables, then it evolved into samplers. The original concept of Hip-Hop music was to find the rarest loops and breaks to rock the party. DJs used records to create their art much like a visual artist uses colors to create a painting.  In case there were any other DJs in the house, you had to make sure you covered your record labels so no one could know what you were playing. Today, with the advent of the internet it's harder to keep the best loops and breaks a closely guarded secret.

SEN-ONE6 does a good job at showcasing where a handful of underground classic rap records got their loops and breaks. Take a seat class is in session...
