Nice chat, and a cool idea well executed. A lot to digest for response in a comment, so I’ll leave that for another time.

Very good listen, guys. I’m interested in why Steve thinks that sampling is such a key feature of the current electronic music landscape though. It’s been a huge part of the culture since the birth of the sampler!

You’re certainly right, Richard, although it seemed much more prevalent in several facets of dance music — UK bass and house music chief among them — than in the past few years. I can’t count how many records I heard this year built on a single vocal sample, or how many UK funky/bass tracks thrived on sped up R&B vocals. So while the trend is certainly not unique to 2010, my staff and I believe it came to a head last year.

I don’t think you can say sampling is more prevailant in todays dance music culture. Maybe the way in which samples are being used is different but certainly not sampling itself. I suppose Burials sampling influence on UK dance music has finally caught up at a more mainstream level within electronic music.

So essentially, we have all this new technology and all most EDM producers want to do with it is to replicate old sounds.
