SHAM SHAM – 99 Hearts

I just picked up this brilliant and quirky new mashup on 12″.

Sham Sham – 99 Hearts mp3

This track is a veritable six-degrees-of-separation of sampling. Firstly, the vocal from the Sham Sham track is taken from the Rick Rubin produced ’99 Problems’ and the music is largely sampled from Architecture In Helsinki’s ‘Heart It Races’:

Jay-Z – 99 Problems mp3

Architecture In Helsinki – Heart It Races mp3

’99 Problems’ borrows elements of many records, including most prominently:

Ice-T – 99 Problems mp3

UGK – Touched mp3

But the big sample is from:

Billy Squier – Big Beat mp3

Which Dizzee Rascal used just a couple of months before on:

Dizzee Rascal – Fix Up, Look Sharp mp3

Which was sampled on and referenced by Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip on:

Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip – Fixed mp3

Lastly, is of course the legendary and most famous Remix/Bootleg of ’99 Problems’, the ‘Helter Skelter’ sampling:

Danger Mouse – 99 Problems mp3

I could go on all day, but I’ll just finish by linking to a few YouTube vids of the above tracks:

    The template is one of the standard wordpress themes (Theme = Black Letterhead by Ulysses Ronquillo), was actually getting sick of it and thinking of changing up.
