I Found a Sound: A Brief History of Sampling and Appropriation in Music

Dr. Zomb and RefuDJ ManRich present a chronological look at sampling, from it's roots in Musique Concrete and Avant Garde, to the pioneering lp by Brian Eno and David Byrne, and on to culture jamming artists such as Negativland, John Oswald, Evolution Control Committee, as well as Turntablism in Hip Hop and finally, recent Mashup masterpieces. Plunder Radio!!!

Fun show. We helped raise a few bucks for KBOO and presented - in rough chronological order - a somewhat abbreviated overview of sampling and appropriation in music.

It's amazing where the road will lead when you get two DJs in the room with pickings from their respective collections. We ended up continually surprising each other when one record from one of us would dovetail with something in another's crate, with little or no pre-planning.

Dr. Zomb and I would like to thank all the folks who provided or suggested material, among them DJ Broken Window, Rolf Semprebon, Marc De Gierre, Mssr. Chris Merrick and more...

I would also like to dedicate this show to KBOO's Papa Dada, the late, great Richard Francis, who blew my teenage mind by playing historic cut-up and tape art music on his show all those years ago.

We were joined on the phones by some great KBOO volunteers.  We raised about $230 in pledges and got at least 2 people signed up as new KBOO members!  Big thanks to everyone who called in and made donations during our show.

We had some great music to give away from IAmSound Records and some tickets for Deadmau5 and Burns - big thanks to Red Cube and Double Tee for the tickets!

Thanks again to all our listeners and callers for supporting what we do.  Big thanks to all the labels / producers that provide us with such great music!

          THE MELTING POT - Featured artist 10/06/09 - WAX TAILOR

Fueled by the energy of relentless touring he has written his third and best album to date “In the Mood for Life”. Written in both Paris and New York City, this necromancer of forgotten melodies is able to blend Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop, and 60’s Pop Music into a 52 minute journey.

Wax Tailor masters the art of reinventing oneself, and although his signature sound is immediately identifiable, a style oft compared to melancholic melodies reminiscent of The Cocteau Twins blended with a delicate balance of Hip-Hop seldom seen these days, this new album establishes a true evolution both in terms of production and song writing. String instruments, which were once just extras, now assume a more prominent role (”Dry Your Eyes”,” Go Without Me”), and where genres once crossed path from one track to another, they now collide within a track (”This Train”, “Fireflies”). The resulting sound is denser, more organic and the song writing more finely chiseled.

With the opening notes, the mood sets the stage. Wax Tailor is now the conductor of melodies, the director of an aural movie whose urban roots meet the perfect casting. Throughout this album, he appropriates a multitude of references with a very personal touch. His music is beyond genres and defies categorization, it is a modern brand of pop music, designed with a rigor and an expertise that betrays the love this artist puts into his craft.

 

His first album “Tales of the Forgotten Melodies” drew comparisons to the likes of RJD2, Portishead and DJ Shadow, while his second “Hope & Sorrow” (80 000 sold worldwide) landed him a nomination at the prestigious Victoires de la Musiques, as well as the US Indie Awards. Wax Tailor is coming off a year which saw him tour relentlessly (over 200 concerts) and score the title track for the movie “Paris” by Cedric Klapisch as well as a few remixes (Nina Simone, ASA). He is now a well-established and respected producer. Written in both Paris and New York City, his third album “In the Mood for Life” is an organic landscape with orchestral accents. Taking its cues from Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop or 60’s Pop Music, this is one eagerly awaited 52 minute journey. IN THE MOOD FOR LIFE Who else than this necromancer of forgotten melodies can assemble such a wide array of influences and make them coexist with such ease? On Wax Tailor album melancholic melodies reminiscent of The Cocteau Twins strike a delicate balance with a brand of Hip-Hop seldom seen since the days of Jurassic 5. Wax Tailor also masters the art of reinventing oneself, and although his signature sound is immediately identifiable, this new album establishes a true evolution both in terms of production and song writing. Sting instruments, which were once just extras, now assume a more prominent role (Dry Your Eyes, Go Without Me). Where genres once crossed path from one track to another, they now collide within a track (This Train, Fireflies). The resulting sound is denser, more organic as well (Leave It, I Own You…) and the song writing more finely chiseled. With the opening notes, the mood sets the stage. Wax Tailor is now a sound stager, the director of an aural movie whose urban roots meet the perfect casting. Throughout this album, he appropriates a multitude of references with a very personal touch. His music is beyond genres and defies categorization, it is a modern brand of Pop music, designed with a rigor and an expertise that betrays the love this artist puts into his craft. Guests of the album in order of apparition: Charlotte Savary – the muse whose voice dresses WT’s music with melancholic echoes. Speech Defect – the raw energy of the Beastie Boys allied with the flow of Jurassic 5. They are the kings of Scandinavian hip-hop and come here to celebrate sampled music. Sara Genn – following a chance encounter in New York City, WT wrote this title with his friend Marina Quaisse especially to match her voice. No doubt such talent will soon resonate outside of her home city. Mattic – the charismatic MC who joins WT on stage has been there since the first album. On this record he brings all the energy and mastery of a mature rapper. Dionne Charles – The Brighton Diva, one of the great voices of English soul comes for a tribute to the sound of Motown. Voice & Ali Harter – the incongruous meeting of the Louisiana MC and of one of Folk music’s best kept secrets delivers a vintage and organic single that crosses genres. ASM – the English collective were one of the highlights of WT’s last album. They come back on a track whose groove is pure delight. Charlie Winston – shares with WT a taste for hats and a love of Soul. “I Own You” is the illegitimate lovechild of those two universes. JC’s stage name, Wax Tailor, originated in 2004 with the release of his EP “Lost The Way.” He subsequently released his first full-length album, “Tales Of The Forgotten Melodies,” completely on his own. The album garnered critical acclaim and love from French music fans and became one of the best selling electronic releases of the year. His next move was to take his show live, with a four-piece band, and find a way to translate the cinematic feel of his music through the use of video. Building on the solid foundation in France, Wax Tailor licensed “Tales” to Decon in 2006 for North American distribution and continued touring across the globe, opening up for the likes of Aceyalone & RJD2. In 2007, in addition to the release of his sophomore effort, “Hope & Sorrow,” WT & his musiciens made a worldwide tour of a 100 shows. They’ll be on the road again this year for a new tour, check the schedule !
