Tunes with Old Songs running through them

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
I'm looking for some decent hip hop or dance tunes that have got like old songs running through, or like techno/trance/hip hop remixes of old songs.

I've got mosta the obvious one, it's more obscure shit I'm looking for.

An example would be that Nas tune that has the bass line from Inna Godda Davita in it and it sounds fucking awesome :thumb:

    That's an awsome track. Congo Natty also included Barrington Levy's 'Under Mi Sensi' in one of his jungle tracks - you know what that's called? It's good too.

    A Tribe Called Quest - Can I Kick It? used the lou read tune walk on the wildside

    also check out the Dangermouse mashup of Jay-Z's Black album and The Beatles White album. i really like it. im not a big fan of either but what Dangermouse (the guy from gnarls barkley) did with them was quality. its called the grey album, but its not been officially released.

    edit; oh yeah, and Public Enemy - He Got Game sampled Stephen Stills - "For What It's Worth"

    Public Enemy sampled Slayer's Angel of Death in the song She Watch Channel Zero.

    angel of death has been used in a few drum and bass tunes too.

    check out 'amon tobin - angel of theft'. among others.

    Stone Roses-Made of Stone (808 remix) is a good one.

    You say you've got most of the obvious ones? well, what are the obvious ones?
    Pretty much every track featuring the diplomats has a sample of an old song in there, same goes with kanye..in fact, pretty much any artist signed to rockafella (even though the diplomats technically arent anymore)

    By obvious I meant commercial, stuff like Kanye (as you were saying).
