The Original Sample:
illa is currently ghost hunting at Old Man McGregor’s abandoned carnival in Hialeah, FL. He got a call from some of the neighborhood kids who claimed they were witnesses to some very strange paranormal activity near the funhouse. illa set up cameras throughout the park and said he would be back in time to do the write-up this week, but no one has heard from him since he left 7 days ago…7 daysssss…
Anywho…as I recall, the first time we used Cortex was on my birthday back in July. This is the third time this year we have used this group as a sample for the WBS and I’m sure it won’t be the last. These guys are amazing.
Undulating rhythmic sequences go from high to low in the blink of an eye then return to uber-cool breakdowns all linked together by Mireille Dalbray’s hauntingly bewitching voice. It’s enough to make you want to call off work for a day just to listen on repeat.
On a related note, peep the video teaser from Common’s next single which samples (hopefully) this week’s WBS sample. Common + No ID Production + Cortex’s Troupeau Bleu = Classic.
