Sample sale

Derek Walmsley

For those who, like us, have been cold rockin' the Beastie Boys' reissued Paul's Boutique – a big influence on The Bomb Squad, I believe – it's worth checking out this sample resource for the album.

I haven't looked into it deeply yet, but the sheer density of the samples, and breadth of the styles referenced, is fantastic.
