Hip Hop History Week: Sampling Workshop with Kind Dub


Living Room


This evening features an interactive sampling workshop diving into the history, the controversy, the art form, and the how-to of sampling, with Fort Collins Hip Hop producers Kind Dub.

In music, sampling is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or a sound recording in a different song or piece. (Wiki)

We have a two part-workshop planned for everyone interested in sampling. First, we will dive into sampling history and the importance and impact of sampling on hip hop music. We will discuss the controversy and why sampling is considered an artform by many, and a crime by others. Part two of this interactive workshop will include an introductory dive into the how-to of sampling. We will explore topics like finding and recording samples, where to look, and how to use pieces of music production hardware and software to begin sampling. Kind Dub will share some of their own sampling projects, as well as answer any questions the audience might have about sampling with a Q&A to follow.
