Cut N Paste: The Art of Sampling is a documentary series looking at relationships between different genres of music and sampling. The first episode explores the funky world of Hip-Hop sampling.

Sampling is the process of taking one person’s song or a snippet of a song, and reincarnating it to produce a new original piece of work. Hip-Hop producers and musicians have been sampling music since the 1970’s, embracing the something from nothing nature of Hip-Hop culture.

The documentary draws on musicians, producers and record collectors in the Nottingham area, to discuss their opinions of sampling.

“It sort of takes something from nothing”
