Like too many SoundClouders before them, Pimpsoul & Neon Steve decided not to include the vocals they sampled for what I’m guessing is out of copyright fears… or is it something else? Whatever it may be, we’ve got to find a solution so musicians get the proper credit they deserve. Thankfully, after a lil’ digging around, I found out who these two sampled.
When I first heard ‘Merry Go Round,’ I thought Pimpsoul & Neon Steve were sampling the Jackson 5. But after getting these things wrong more than once, you tend to check your work before posting it to the public. ‘Merry Go Round’ actually takes an obscure Supremes’ vocal sample and gives it a “complete funk facial.” And as much as I love the bass buzzing ghetto funk, how they perform the vocal breaks is what impresses me most.
