Foolcast 029 – His Majesty Andre “Play It, Don’t Say It”

Posted on Dec 6th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

The latest Foolcast comes from our disco lovin Italian bro His Majesty Andre, who whipped up a collection of OG samples from some of your favorite dance records. Says HMA, “As you’ve might have noticed, I go crazy for sampling. No matter if it’s pop, house music, experimental or hip-hop, I’ve always been fascinated by the way you can turn a thing into another, whether a straight loop or a chopped, replayed and distorted one. The samples used in music are countless, I just chose my favorites.” No tracklist, that’s part of the fun…

Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main Foolcast page, where you can also download the download the mix directly (right click and save-as). And follow HMA on Twitter!
