[Audio] The Man with the Golden Arm

Melvin Bliss’ “Synthetic Substitution” has to be one of the most sampled tracks in hip-hop. Released in 1973 on Sunburst, the track features a 10 second drum solo (drum break) by legendary drummer Bernard Purdie. That break quickly became the backbone for countless hip-hop recordings, including “Ego Trippin’” (Ultramagnetic MCs), “Murder by Reason of Insanity” (Scarface), “Bring Da Ruckus” (Wu-Tang Clan) and “Code of the Streets” (Gang Starr). Now, DJ Green Giant has taken those sampled tracks and put them into a mix he calls The Man with the Golden Arm. For you new hip-hop heads, pay attention. Class is now in session. Enjoy and be educated.
