All this week on the Seven O'Clock sample, we have explored the music of Massive Attack's 1991 debut album BLUE LINES. Blue Lines featured the use of breakbeats, sampling, and rapping on a number of tracks. Massive Attack approached the American-born hip hop movement from an underground British perspective and also incorporated live instruments into the mixes. This was the start of the Trip-Hop movement. The Bristol sound went on to take over the world with groups like Portishead and Trick having big breakout succes after this album was released. Blue Lines features the vocals of Shara Nelson and Horace Andy, along with the rapping of Tricky, who is featured on today's selection "Daydreaming."
This track wasn't just created from a sample, it's primarly based on the song "Mambo" by Wally Badarou.
