My dear friend Whiskers came through yet again with a GREAT find. In a way, I almost expected it though, since we’re talking about Dilla here (he produced Tribe’s Find a Way). This is one of the more unique samples I’ve heard, since he grabs both the vocal melody and the key chunk for the beat from the track.
The jam is called Technova (La em Copacabana) by Tova Tei (a DJ from Tokyo who has produced a ton of music). Highlights: 1:05 and 2:30 (especially 2:30).
