This week on Seven o'Clock sample, we are looking back at one of the most influential trip hop albums recorded; Dummy.

Dummy ushered in a new sound for the UK, and the world for that matter.  This album brought the "Bristol Sound" to the rest of the world.  Portishead had a refreshing a unique approach to using samples.  Many tracks on their debut album are a combo of live instrumentation and cool samples.

Here is the debut single SOUR TIMES.

 

 

Cool and creepy song that borrows most of the sounds from the Mission: Impossible TV show.  Jazz composer and conductor Lalo Schifrin composed much of the music for the TV and this track called "Danube Incident"
