Charley says LIST! 3 Unlikely Yet Rather Amazing Samples

1. Song: Lumidee – Insomnia
Sample: Faithless – Insomnia
About: The Queen of Spanish Harlem is back! Over the past few years Lumidee has been making sure that’s she’s not going to be the ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)‘ girl for the rest of her life. I’m particularly fond of her Speedy collaboration ‘Sientelo‘. (“Classy, but sexy without no tongue ring […] Straight from the gutter, but I shine like a pearl”) With a cheeky “They say God is a DJ” added, this new song is the best use of ‘Insomnia’ since the 2003 TMF Awards opening performance.

2. Song: The Crybabies – Wherever I Go
Sample: Zombie Nation – Kernkraft 400
About: Looks like someone Eva Simons’ed Eva Simons herself! The former ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ winner shot to international fame when ‘Silly Boy‘ was leaked as a Lady Gaga and Rihanna demo. ‘Wherever I Go‘ just hit the web as Eva’s alleged new single. However, a little digging revealed that it’s actually The Crybabies who get to take credit for it!

3. Song: Auburn – La La La
Sample: ATC – Around The World (La La La La La)
About: Auburn, formerly known as Gabby G, is already being dubbed the Princess of Beluga Heights. J.R. Rotem seems to be on a roll when it comes to sampling. After Jason Derülo’s Imogen Heap-sampling ‘Whatcha Say‘ he turned the cheesy (yet nonetheless amazing) ‘Around The World (La La La La La)‘ by German pop group ATC into a proper R&B tune.
