Le Mellotron - From Jazz to Hip-Hop
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2011-08-16

It's not news and even less an insult to say that hip-hop drew from the jazz catalog to build its empire. Le Mellotron picks in the hidden side of its Original Samples to deliver to their friends of Paris DJs a mix made up essentially of jazz tracks, dust-cleaned by the hip-hop movement, and quite often magnificiently emphasized. Will you be able to find which fantastic diggers went on a quest for the perfect sample that led them to the tracks played in this mix? We're letting you wonder… Answers are be published here.

Ce n'est pas une nouvelle et encore moins une insulte lorsque l'on dit que le hip-hop a puisé dans le répertoire du jazz pour fonder son empire. Le Mellotron pioche dans la face cachée de ses Original Samples pour livrer à ses amis de Paris DJs un mix composé essentiellement de titres jazz dépoussiérés par le mouvement hip-hop et souvent magnifiquement mis en valeur. Saurez-vous retrouver ces diggers hors pairs partis à la recherche du sample parfait? On vous laisse mijoter… Réponse début septembre. (Le Mellotron)
