This week on the Seven O'Clock Sample, we are exploring samples used by the Norwegian duo Röyksopp. The song "So Easy" was released as their first single.. Originally it was released in 1999, with only 500 copies made and distributed. Later it was re-released on Röyksopp's debut album Melody A.M.
This was a big hit for the group.The song was used for a time on British television ads for T-Mobile, as well as the displays between programs on BBC. The original sample source is a 1960s cover version of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "Blue on Blue" recorded by a Swedish vocal group called Gals & Pals.
