Outstanding: Charlie Wilson & The Gap Band's Hip Hop Legacy

gennaio 09, 2011

Good music is timeless. The GAP band has been moving dance floors for decades, and the use of sampling has propelled the work of the group into current music. Check out this mix recorded by my friend DJ Synapse highlighting the legacy the Gap band and Charlie Wilson have left in hip hop. It is refreshing to see Charlie Wilson be so gracious about his role in sample based music, and wonderful to see him working with a friend. Enjoy the mix.
