    Default Sounds that define the history of EDM

    Since I'm "in between" projects, earlier today I thought it would be cool if I put together a track that sampled (or recreated) some of the biggest sounds that became staples in EDM.

    Maybe you guys have heard mashups where 25 songs are crammed into two minutes. That's not what I'm trying to do. I want to find an elegant way to reference and/or use these sounds.

    I'm looking for things that really are classics, such as
    • The Amen Break
    • The 'Hoover' Sound
    • Acid Synths


    I'm looking for anything that really paved the way for other music. I know you guys can think of more than I can off the top of my head.

    Oh, and if anyone wants to do a mini-collaboration for this, that would be cool.

    Roland 808 kick drum and "handclap" sounds.

    some music history trivia: the handclap most likely dates back to the cholera outbreaks of the 15th century, it was a way of letting people know you were infected.

    This sound (0:13 onwards):

    Is a really short piece of this:

    P.S. This is still surprisingly effective. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PkD-...eature=related

    Holy crap!! I always felt as if that was a familiar sample, but never knew where from.

    Oh yeah how about the Chicago song where they sample "street sounds twirlin in my mind" (though they change it to "these sounds falling in my mind")...

    James Brown's "whoo yeah!" from Lyn Collins' "Think" is another classic (not to mention the "Funky Drummer" break)

    And this is going back but you probably want "pump up the volume" in there somewhere....

    Check and check. Nice call gentlemen. Forgot all about the old school drum machine samples.

    It's weird that you mention that. I was thinking about classic vocal samples to use a few minutes ago. Unfortunately a lot of them are still (over)used today and it might just sound tacky. Actually the whole song will probably sound tacky. But that's kinda what I want to do.
