The Connect - The Debut

One of the more creative aspects of music is reinvention.  A skilled artisan can take something old, an eight bar loop, and turn it into something new to be loved by a different audience.  The last part of that statement is an interesting one.  How many times have we heard a song and went "What a great sample.  Who is that?"  Only, the answer is usually a shoulder shrug and an "I don't know."  That's a shame.  Here at THE MUSIQUARIUM, we're trying to bridge that gap.  So every week, I'm going to highlight a few old school artists whose music yo've probably heard time and time again, but just couldn't put a name to the beat.  Hope you enjoy.
