Oh it's Rock Da haus Anna? Sort of. (0:31)

https://youtu.be/GWUQZFa8AW4

WhoSampled reckons that the above drectly samples this Pete Rock track circa 4:34, but I'm struggling to hear any "Anna" here...

https://youtu.be/tpLsGL5-2_4

Incidentally the Chems remix of Voodoo People also samples the track below at 2:12. I guess Boogie Down Productions have been a long time Chemical favourite, as their JIMMY would hugely influence CHEMICAL (writing credit given) many years later.

Spoiler
And a final PS; this one may be a bit tenuous, so I've put it under spoiler tags like a coward! The "computer" sound effect in the clip below (1:22) was sampled in large sections of JIMMY. To my ears, it sounds like an influence on the "chaos" sounds you get at the end of Chems gigs.

around 4:35 to 4:45

Anyone who has seen the Chems live set recently will recognize this one.

Holy shit! My wife loves that movie. I did NOT pick up on that.

In fairness though, hearing the COME WITH US man is very distracting for my brain. It's all I hear.

YouTube has suggested I might like to listen to Egyptian Empire's Horn Track (1992) recently, and...I agree! Though I think this track was subsequently improved upon.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lm9bdVeZiCQ

The middle eastern/Egyptian sounding horns are a sample of an old 80s track by an act called C Cat Trance (sample right at the start).

Rattling Ghosts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HU1LTm9n9k

And if those horns sound familiar to you, it might just be because the Prodigy then sampled them on Climbatize (at about 2:38, and then really clearly from 4:22 onwards).


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAeOauwkeOo

But I think if you just want Horns + breakbeats in their purest form, Horny - a breaks bootleg 12" is probably the one for you. One of a whole bunch of fantastic breaks bootlegs released in 2003/4 on DDB Records - which was basicaly a white label breaks project from Dylan Rhymes. The same Dylan Rhymes whose 90s Chemical sounding track, Naked & Ashamed I posted in Now Playing recently.

I love the comments underneath, asking how Klaus 'Heavyweight' Hill (big breaks guy that some man know from his tunes on Mob Records) knows for sure that it's Dylan Rhymes.

It's literally a bootleg featuring his drums from this banger:

Awesome post, just for sharing the Egyptian Empire - The Horn Track. That is crazy good! Thank you!

I also have a connection! I don't think it's sampled amongst the ones you have listed, just very similar :

absolute legend of a game.

YES! I thought of this too when I listened to Horn Track.
I think the Spirit Temple music (maybe also Climbatize, subliminally) is what created what I can only describe as a weird pocket of nostalgia in my brain for sandy, Egyptian sounding horns like that. Love it.

To connect this all to another tune (back in the world of Breakbeat again), this has always been a favourite track of mine from a compilation of straight bangers (Perfect Breaks):

Well as this is the samples thread... Tablas aside, you know where they sampled that eastern/asian sound from?
Led Zeppelin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNo1nS_JV5k

It's not currently on WhoSampled (though weirdly, these things often seem to appear on whosampled after I mention them on the forum), and I don't think the producers got permission or gave credit. But tell me I'm wrong!
Incidentally an Irish/Cork act called Fish Go Deep, best known for the pop house hit, The cure and the cause were originally called FishGoTech (the name of a Fish n Chip joint), and one of their early releases (1994-ish) was just the full intro to Led Zep's In The Light over some beats. The track isn't listed on Discogs or anywhere else - but I guess they weren't famous yet...

[Meat Katie Meets Christian J – Turn Me Out]

I remember that track. Kathy Brown got a lot of mileage through the remixes with that song. I nearly bought that 12" (2004) but decided not to as I'd already bought the bootleg 12" below a few months earlier. Yes, it's Gat Decor's Passion mashed up with Turn Me Out - and no I won't get any cool points for this, but it's better than it has any right to be.

Hello!
I'm new here.
I think I might have one for you.

I was listening to the Mortal Coil version of Song To The Siren, from which the Chems track of the same name borrows a sample.

But I think the first few seconds are also sampled in The Private Psychedelic Reel.

This is a very quick sketch - in the track it's played polyphonically at points, and the tremolo may be a loop point rather than a simple amp LFO.

See what you think:

Which sample do they borrow?



But to build up on this: Tim Buckley's Song To The Siren, which here is covered by This Mortal Coil, was also covered in 2017 by Wolf Alice* for a Spotify Session. Wolf Alice lead singer Ellie Rowsell is supposed to be featured on the next Chems album. Fun fact: The video on youtube features scenes from the movie Atonement. Atonement was directed by Joe Wright who also directed Hanna for which the Brothers contributed the soundtrack.






* i'm going to see Wolf Alice on wednesday, very happy
no idea, no idea

I suspect Pumisher knows the answer, but Hello Ed and welcome. Just to confuse things, the vocals on the Chems' Song To The Siren were sampled from another artist on the same label as This Mortal Coil -  4AD records (the Chems sampled 4AD stuff a lot back then). The vox are from Dead Can Dance's "Song Of Sophia". The Chems were being playful (and confusing!), and I think they just named the track after the sirens at the beginning of their track.
A similar example: The Chems track One Too Many Mornings is named after a Bob Dylan song (cos they like him) but it's not a cover of that song, nor does it sample it!

Woah, you're twisting my melon man!
I will add that Joe Wright also directed the play, Life of Gallileo at The Young Vic, which Tom Rowlands did the music for, and which remains unreleased and only heard by those of us who went to the play.

I think I like it! You might be on to something there.

Now do the sitar from Norwegian Wood (which is believed -by some- to be chopped up and rearranged in The Private Psychedelic Reel).

Speaking of the original Song To The Siren by Tim Buckley/This Mortal Coil, there's actually a "dance" version of that song out RIGHT NOW!
I would love to hear a Chemcial version of this actual song. I listen to this and think: it could have been really good...

HOSH - Song To The Siren

PS Pumisher, enjoy Wolf Alice. Please hang around afterwards and ask Ellie:
a) is that her voice sampled on Dreaming, and is it correct that she has a writing credit on that track?
b) was she involved with the new "warped pop/rock/indie" track the Chems have been playing in DJ sets?
c) If they didn't play Silk (from the T2 Trainspotting soundtrack) at your gig, why not? It's ace!

PPS: Mmm Keira K. in that WA video. A friend of mine lives a few doors along from her in London, he sees her at the local supermarket and at the local swings/playground with her kids. He has kids too, he's not stalking her!

More melon twisting:
Fun fact: Keira is married to James Righton, formerly of Klaxons. Tom Rowlands produced Klaxons final album at RAR studios, and remixed their single, Love Frequency. Both Keira and James were at the opening night of Life of Galileo.

Ha! I think I read it somewhere, Wikipedia maybe, which was how I came to be listening to that version of the track in the first place.

Now do the sitar from Norwegian Wood (which is believed -by some- to be chopped up and rearranged in The Private Psychedelic Reel).

I'm just having a listen to Norwegian Wood and will investigate further. I did put Pee-Wee's Dance into the Digitakt a while ago, I'll have to make a similar little video for that.
