What you’re hearing at the start of the podcast is one of the most frequently sampled tracks in electronic music – the acapella from Loreatta Holloway’s Crash Goes Love, released in 1984. It’s now been sampled in 129 tracks from artists such as deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Don Diablo and David Guetta.
In light of this, I decided to make a compilation of 28 tracks that use the Crash Goes Love sample to demonstrate just how often it is used in dance music. The name/artist of each song is annotated on the Soundcloud track in real time 🙂
Should the artists of sampled tracks make a commission for their content being used in new media? Let me know what you think in the comments.
This is my Soundcloud podcast post.
