Just part of the reason why the 90s remains what i see as the best decade for music! Hope you enjoy :) And i may add actual youtube tags to some of this at some point!

1 Radiohead - OK Computer
Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. …

19. Mär. 2010, 18:18 von doomzmasterSo today I was extremely bored and having nothing better to do I decided to make a little game out of listening to my music. So I decided to start with a track, and then using last.fm's related tracks list on the tracks page I randomly selected the next song that I would listen to. I was curious to see how far away from the original song I would be able to get in 20 songs. It didn't turn out quite as I'd thought, though it could just be the songs I chose.
I started with Dr. Dre - Deep Cover
after that it took me to Dr. Dre - Fuck Wit Dre Day
then to Dr. Dre -Deeez Nuuuts
then yet another Dre song Dr. Dre - High Powered
Finally I managed to get away from Dre for a minute and go to Snoop Dogg - Pump Pump
then another Dre track Dr. Dre - Stranded on Death Row
Still on the west the next song was 2Pac - 2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted
Finally I made the move over the the east coast with Notorious B.I.G. - Big Poppa
next to a classic track Big L - Put It On
over to Mobb Deep - Survival of the Fittest

6. Mai. 2009, 4:59 von sflegendAwhile back, I decided to do some digging and see where Kanye West originally got the sample from for his single, "Through the Wire". Chaka Khan's - Through the Fire is where he sampled most of the beat from along with speeding up a loop of Aretha Franklin's voice from that song. Another nice Kanye West sample I found was The Doors - Five to One for Jay-Z's "Takeover" track. Now I'm not mad, but glad that Kanye and others like Pete Rock and DJ Premier decided to sample tracks from a variety of genres. I appreciate listening to the original sample and it certainly has opened my mind to explore other types of music to listen to. Some might complain that it might be the producer that's lazy, but if it weren't for the producer diggin in the crates for inspiration, I wouldn't have found out about other artists.
Other samples I recently found out about and enjoy listening to:
The Pharcyde - Runnin' sampled from Stan Getz & Luiz Bonfa - Saudade Vem Correndo
