Brand new episode of The Adventures of Blueprint called “The Sample Police”
A little while back I was asked this question about sampling on Twitter. I wanted to answer it there, but I realized that would be pretty difficult because of the 140 character limit, so I decided to write some thoughts on it here.
To discuss sampling properly, I think it’s necessary to talk about it from three distinct perspectives: the artist doing the sampling, the artist being sampled, and the rights owner of the sampled material. I’ll write my thoughts on each perspective.
