I was sampled! UK rap related
So I'm googling my name (because I do that), and I come across an album by a Welsh producer called Metabeats with two tracks called "Dan Zacks". Mine is not an especially common name, so I'm a little intrigued, but I figure that along with the Metabeats mainstays (OPTIMAS PRIME, QUIET POISON, RALPH RIPSHIT[/b] (best name ever!), RUFFSTYLZ, MUDMOWTH, C MINUS, SKAMMA, PERGYL, beleaf, HEKLA, KUSHA & JOE BLOW) there's some dude name 'Dan Zacks'. So I listen to the mp3 samples available here: http://www.juno.co.uk/products/287489-01.htm and, gee whiz, Dan Zacks is me. Dude took samples of Waxing Deep--lame samples, I might add, although one is before I'm about to chat with crinky--and played them over his beats. I'm an interlude on some dude's hiphop album! Dig: Here is what some website says about it:Leaden beats, uninspired scratching and tired, aggressive raps left me feeling thoroughly discouraged; if this is the best that UK hip hop has to offer, then we might as well just pull out the London Posse CDs now. But then, on track 4, the bizarre skit entitled ???Dan Zacks???, it all starts to look a lot brighter: it sees a cheesy American DJ rambling over a choice soul sample; sounds weird, but it works[/b].So is Metabeats the future? Is Waxing Deep destined for UK glory? I don't know a thing about UK hip hop and I don't know Metabeats. I'm not entirely comfortably with being a cheesy American DJ, but what the hell, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about, or so they say. At least folks in Wales are digging Waxing Deep.I hereby formally request that AKO name the next track after "Hammer" "Cheesy American DJ".
