Funny fact about about the guy is that he was working for S.O.U.R. for a less than a week and got fired … Continue Reading »
Jungle always had big influence from hip-hop. When hip-hop producers took their samples from original records, junglists often sampled the same thing from hip-hop records. Credit to Ayres, 15 years later things can also turn the other way. Few of my not so obvious choices on this topic. Took me a moment to clean the … Continue Reading »
