With the news of Sylvia’s passing this week it got me thinking of some of the records with breaks that came out on the labels she co-ran, so here’s some videos of the ones I can think of from the top of the head.
Who used this one? Was it Mobb Deep?
The new ‘New York, New York’?
Used on an early Warp records classic
One from Sylvia herself – ‘all day banging like a…’ etc.
…and the Last Donut.
Great record and I think Ashley Beedle used it in the early 90s
My favourite track from Late Registration
After Hours… (I could only find the Ugly Edits version (which is v nice) but the sample comes in around 3:30
This has been used on 9th’s new album
I don’t think this has been used but it was a massive hit in the UK and the best record I know on All Platinum. The video below is the normal version but here’s an alternative from Top of The Pops with the BBC orchestra.
BONUS HIDDEN TRACK
Best use of Rapper’s Delight?
You’ll also here Rapper’s Delight somewhere in this too
Last one from Sylvia:
