"I’ve been re-constructing hip hop songs from their original samples, and every time I’ve been fascinated by the producer’s choices.
Before we take a look at each sample, you might have noticed how weird it is to compose with milliseconds of a song. Producers are studying these moments for hours. They understand the minutia – the exact note at the exact millisecond that creates an interesting beat.
I wish that more people understood this process and gift, so I’ve re-created the process of chopping up a sample, just as a producer would. Note: I'm providing these samples to you on a platter. This is no way acocunts for the hours/days spent crate-digging."
