Outkast – Aquemini: The Samples

Aquemini: The Samples 

Yup, Hurricane Ivan and I are back at it again.

Last time we brought you Outkast’s ATLiens: The Samples, so why not continue with the duo’s next LP?

1998’s Aquemini, which is the sole ‘Kast record to earn The Source Mag’s coveted 5-mic rating, is the most forward-thinking of their catalog (and happens to be my personal favorite).

To accomplish the futuristic vibe, Organized Noize Productions, Mr. DJ and Andre & Antwaan themselves opted for predominantly electro-hop, synth-heavy instrumentals.

Therefore, the very few samples utilized are executed with surgeon-like precision, appearing on only four of the disc’s 16 tracks.

The spine-chilling “Cancion De Amor” by folk trio The Sandpipers gives “Rosa Parks” its vocal eeriness while the opening drumroll from Sly & The Family Stone’s “Rock Dirge” opens arguably the weirdest ‘Kast track of them all, “SpottieOttieDopaliscious.”

ONP recreated “Police Woman” by Pink Panther theme composer Henry Mancini for “Skew It On The Bar-B,” fully-equipped with blasting horns and bouncing bassline. “Return of the G” rounds out the samples, borrowing from Curtis Mayfield’s “Super Fly” and Giorgio Moroder’s Theme from “Midnight Express”

We’ve also included the instrumental for “Theme from Midnight Express” as an added bonus. It’s Saturday night, so come bump and slump with us.. ’cause we the type of people make the club get crunk.

Enjoy!
