i like to pride myself on figuring out where many modern "artists" have basically stolen the hooks they use. made this one awhile ago and gave it away, so i'm reconstructing from memory here. and there are definitely more tracks where these came from- feel free to post your own stolen favorites. it's sorta a drag that so many people think they're listening to will smith when they're actually listening to patrice rushen (or kool and the gang, or stevie wonder, or sister sledge, or......) i can say one thing, tho: when put into the hands of someone who knows what they're doing, sampling can be AMAZING- the most obscure things on here (tracks #4 on each side) were used by brand nubian in the SAME song. it shoudn't have worked, but it did. THAT was hip.

This was a real cool idea. And it helps that the songs are good too. I dig this shit man.

Labi Siffre's I Got The... is a particular fave (Eminem). I just heard I Wish and Pastime Paradise today - it's amazing how little work some people can get into the charts with.

Bolt, please make yourself and your contributions to Art of the Mix even MORE VISIBLE! Great soul and funk to begin with.. and great concept of figuring out the sampling!

i never expected anyone to make a mix like this. this is AWESOME!!!! but i totally know what you mean...cause no one attributes the beats that make these songs so popular to their actual creators.

Wow, I just submitted a mix with the same theme (without using any of these tracks), and now I find this! Excellent, a companion piece.
