“Samples Outta L.A.”, 14 classiques soul-funk en CD et LP

Disponible depuis le 3 juin, la compilation Samples Outta L.A. publiée par le label Playoff Records propose 14 classiques soul-funk en CD et LP. Une sélection inspirée par le film Straight Outta Compton et les samples utilisés par les rappeurs de la vieille école West-Coast,  parmi lesquels les rythmiques impérissables d’”Express Yourself” de Charles Wright, du “People Make The World Go Round” des Stylistics et de “The Boogie Back” de Roy Ayers.

Smokey Robinson, James Brown, Barry White, Edwin Starr, Donny Hathaway, Average White Band, les Ohio Players, Eddie Kendricks et le regretté Clarence Reid, dont le  kick de batterie de “Living Together Is Keeping Us Apart” a été réutilisé dans l’album The Chronic de Dr Dre, complètent une sélection qui ravira autant les néophytes que les pros du crate-digging.
