This massive library of Music Documentaries Perfect to Dive Into For Your Weekend


Here’s a great documentary about sampling made by an Australian TV station back in 1988, featuring  interviews with Prince Paul, Will and Jazzy Jeff, Tom Petty, Russell Simmons, Ice T, and a whole lot more. Exploring the art of sampling, sampling became an important factor to many artists causing controversy as well as success for many artists and producers and discusses whether or not sampling is stealing.  The documentary shows us the ins and outs of sampling before the laws were changed to regulate the practise.

If not going out this weekend Belgium electronics music producer Gerome Sportelli, active since the beginning of the 90’s, his music ‘smells’ old school, just like the early age of acid house, his knowledge that is infused with today’s intelligent constructions and an engaged vision on music, Gerome has kindly put into a playlist a collection of 200+ electronic music documentaries that covers everything from house music, trance, docos on synthesis, production, techno, Loveparade, the TB 303 , Berlin clubs and basically everything you can think of making this a resourceful library. Enjoy the many hours of knowledge.
