0044 Tom Scott – Today @ 1:37


This one will be clear to fans of 1990’s hip hop, specifically Pete Rock & CL Smooth. It’s only about 4 or 5 seconds, but when you hear it you can just tell. Pete Rock is a legend, and using his SP1200 (sampler) he took this 5 seconds and looped it to heaven and back.  It’s a killer. So it goes without saying that this is the best part of this old Psychedelic jazz record from 1968.

Turns out Tom Scott did the soundtracks for Starsky & Hutch, and a few other films, so it’s not super rare but I have no doubt when the Chocolate Soul Brother first heard this, he knew he had a gem. And that’s hip hop. Take a listen, and here is a link to the PR & CL tune.

Today 1:30 – 1:45
