Our new favourite internet guy Eclectic Method has done a video remix journey through the history of sampling, taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. It's a chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative. Clever stuff.
