Sample Hip Hop Doc 2012 by Jeff Lent

Over the summer I and a few other Irish producers were involved in a short documentary on the use of sampling in music production. The documentary was produced by Limerick director / editor / producer Jeff Lent and was filmed at a variety of locations around Ireland.  Jeff put this together for a College project and recently released it on YouTube so now I can feature it here 🙂

The track of mine featured in my segments is called ‘Ya Don’t’:

 

DJ Sneak interview for XLR-Radio

When I started DJing & Producing back in 1996 two of my main influences were and still are DJ Sneak & Armand Van Helden.  A few years later I got to see Armand Van Helden play in the Red Box Dublin.  I had been waiting many years for the chance to see DJ Sneak play and I finally got that chance last night.  DJ Sneak rocked the house @ Strutt, Dolans Warehouse, Limerick for a full 3 hour set.  Just before Carlos (DJ Sneak) hit the decks I was backstage to have a chat with him exclusively for XLR-Radio.

I have to say he is one of the friendliest dudes you will ever meet and for a guy as world famous as he is he has no attitude at all..not like some other premier league DJ’s I’ve supported or met in the past..DJ Sneak is straight up and to the point, its all about the love of the music, as in good quality house music..the way it should be 🙂
