Item Description
Ride The Samples' is a project that pays tribute to some of the original songs that - thanks to sampling - later became the building blocks of world-famous hip-hop classics.

Hearing these 8 famously sampled soul classics re-arranged in reggae style reveals how soul and reggae are deeply interconnected. When the first sound systems were born in Jamaica, they used to play a lot of R&B and soul tunes from the states, the melodies and sounds of which, went on to influence the new wave of Jamaican music from ska, to rocksteady and then reggae.

You might find parallel influences in the States, where - in late 70’s Bronx - newly born hip-hop was deeply influenced by Jamaican immigrants with their street art of ‘dee-jaying’ (or 'toasting') over instrumental riddims.

‘Ride The Samples’ is Wake Di Town’s way of keeping this powerful mix of genres together, celebrating the original soul samples on which world-famous hip-hop classics are based.

Produced by Wakeditown Records founder Matia 'Ambassa' Gobbo, 'Ride The Samples' features the wonderful soulful voice of London singer/songwriter Nichola Richards. Recorded between London, Italy, Los Angeles, Denmark and Brazil, it also features Paolo Baldini Dubfiles at the mixing desk, who - very much like King Tubby's used to do - brings the whole sound to life with interesting dub splashes.

The LP features also the sold-out first single “After Laughter Comes Tears” Feat. Nichola Richards!!
