A big batch of tracks sampled by Kanye West – featuring 30 original soul, funk and funky soul titles, plus notes that give away the Kanye tracks for which the tunes were sampled! (Unlike other sets in this Strictly Breaks series, the sleeve doesn't include the names of the original artists.) You don't need to dig too deep through the Dusty Groove descriptions to sense how thrilled we were about Kanye's takeover of the mainstream in the early 00s, given his affinity for true soul samples that move well beyond the typical – even if we did grow wearisome of the sped-up vocal sample trend. You don't need to fear the chipmunk vocals on this set of the original tracks! You get many of the tracks Kanye assembled for his own great singles and album cuts, plus some of his production work for Common, Scarface, Jay-Z, Mos Def
, Mobb Deep and Royce Da 5'9! Tracks include "Diamonds Are Forever", "Someone That I Used To Love", "Wild Flower", "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", "It's Your Thing", "My Funny Valentine", "Action", "It's Too Late", "Upon This Rock", "Walk With Me", "No Money Down", "Chicago", "Something", "Old Smokey", "An This is Love", "Aquarius", "Ghetto Child", "Doggone" and more.
