acapella search tip needed

Hi everyone,

I ve been searching for a long time for decent acapellas that are possible to use in productions but all the sample or acapella pack I found were really cheesy and too mainstream. I was wondering if there is some like hidden source where underground artists (i make underground tech and deep house) get their materials. Also by acapellas i dont necessarily mean singing vocals but may be speech even better, a lot of artists seem to use some cut outs of movies, interviews and such, but i ve never found any decent source for it. If someone knows nice sources and willing to share that would be much appreciated

PS. here is an example of "talking acapella" i was referring to
Olivier Romero -Killa Pilla by Politics Of Dancing Records / P.O.D CROSS | Free Listening on SoundCloud

You just have to watch films and interviews and keep an ear out. Gotta put the work in.

^^ agreed
Another place I pick up a lot of acca’s Is r&b 12” singles. They usually have accapellas on them. Back in the late 80’s & 90’s there were a bunch of records pressed called ‘accapellas’ if I’m not mistaken with house production based accas on them. I must have 6-7 different disks with the jack speech on them heh. Digging will get you the gold!

Sounds like a sample of a conversation from a movie, chopped up. Will be uncleared, the 100s of thousands of electronic tracks using movie samples don't tend to clear.

Youtube is absolutely full of people talking if you want to go this same route. As is most every movie ever.
