8 TRACKS: OF FAVOURITE SAMPLES WITH AL ZANDERS

A focus on the reimagined nature of sound.

This month marks the release of a new EP on Phonica Records. The latest in their prolific label series sees them invite the Sheffield based Londoner Al Zanders to deliver some groove focussed house just in time for Christmas. Al Zanders is a musician who operates under a variety of guises: perhaps you know him best for his edits and work under the name of Lodger? You might know him as AZ? However you have stumbled upon him we can guarantee that it has been in some form of enjoyable capacity because his music is bloody tip top. 

With a keen interest in sampling and the use of imagination he has crafted a signature sound which is taking him upon a merry journey. We asked him to select 8 tracks, pieces of music which depend heavily on their use of sampling. He picks tracks by Dj Rashad, Pepe Bradock, Jaylib and more.

APHEX TWIN - WE ARE THE MUSIC MAKERS

My teacher played me this years ago during my Music Tech A level. The line always sounded familiar to me, then one day I watched Willy Wonka and there it was. Recontextualising something so well known into a trippy underground track makes this a really fun sample.
