This week on the Seven O'Clock Sample, we are exploring the music of Coldcut.

 Matt Black and Jonathan More were / are sample music pioneers who fuse the sounds of hip hop, disco, electronic dance music, funk and jazz.  In 1987, they released a white lable 12" called "Say Kids, What Time Is It?"



I'm not sure where to start on this one.  This song contains over 30 samples in just 4 minutes.  James Brown, Trouble Funk, Kool and The Gang, Kurtis Blow, Jimmy Castor and 

Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers to name a few...
