Eclectic Method - A Brief History Of Sampling

Eclectic Method offers us a chronicle of noteworthy samples that have inexplicably been used by multiple artists over the years. Riffs that ended up layered into the background of dozens of different hit tracks used as a solid, oddly familiar foundation that you wouldn't notice unless it was explicitly pointed out via videos like this.

A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.
