      Sup Funktual - first off just want to say that your video postings are most educational and addicting series I've ever witnessed online! I've been realizing so many of the samples in a ton of the tracks I have. You should check out a track called "Spring Water" by La The Darkman (a wu-tang affiliate), think you'll dig the use of samples. Peace, keep up the great work!

      I love all of your posts. I finally found someone that appreciates a good sample like I do. It's so much easier these days to find them than digging crates.
