OutKast – Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik: The Samples

 OutKast

Ivan and I were on a serious mission this weekend. After dropping this and this, we figured – why stop there? Why not bless the blogosphere and hip-hop heads with another sample set from the almighty OutKast?

Which brings us to the duo’s debut, 1994’s pimp-tastic Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.

Way before Andre & Antwaan apologized to “Miss Jackson” or coaxed listeners to “shake it like a polaroid picture,” they had a smoke out in the Dungeon with Mary Jane, inspiring every pimp, playa and mack daddy in the Atlanta metro area to git up, git out and git somethin’.

Not only did Southern… introduce ‘Kast lyrically, it debuted Organized Noize Productions’ gritty, trunk-rattling instrumentation (that I wrote about in great depth at Metal Lungies’ Beat Drop.) 

The trio hand-picked specific samples here that run the gamut as far as influence. Reinterpeting bebop jazz pioneer Miles Davis’ “Savid” for “Ain’t No Thang,” The Notations “Superpeople” for lead single “Player’s Ball,” reggae-infused drums from Isaac Hayes’ “Joe Ball,” good ol’ American rock band The Eagles’ “The Window” for “Claimin’ True” and the ever elusive Eddie Harris song “Abstractions” for “True Dat (Interlude).”

Warning: Playing this set in your Cadillac will cause a funky ride. Oh, and players, if you choose it, you better make sure that you use it. Enjoy!

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!
