J Dilla/ Washed out

Was Listening to washed outs feel it all around and couldnt help but realize that the sampling technique he employed was awful similar to techniques Dilla had used - most notably on Ruff Draft





Change of tempo, slight rearranging in where the chords fall. Washed out example -





Seems like the same sampling technique to me. Anyway the reason why i posted was to see if anyone knew of any other inventive/imaginative/original ways samples have been re-realized ?

I don't get it?

both examples are simple 2-bar loops of old samples

Attributing that 'technique' to Dilla is taking the hero worship a bit too far

Yeah can't comment on the dilla track, but I know for sure that the Washed Out track is just a four bar loop, including the toms. I know because I've recreated this track. It isn't anything complicated or pioneered by dilla.

Not to mention the whole point of the ruff draft album was that it was supposed to sound like a simple "rough draft"...which was the opposite of what Dilla was known for at the time during the Soulquarian era.

He even says it in one of the intros..."straight loops...f*ck it". Dilla was just going back one the original simple ways of using samples.

Most popular sample based songs have been straight loops. Intricate chops that work really well (enough to be a hit) are the exception.

Even in dance music a lot of the biggest tracks the past 10-15 years have been primarily loops. It's no surprise that washed out was a loop. When I heard it, to me it sounded like a 45 played at 33 and then looped...and that's what I liked about it.

My suggestion the original poster is to get off youtube and go to a real record store.
