Night Of The Living Beathead

If you are not familiar with JORUN BOMBAY's "Instrumentals you never got" series on Youtube then you must have been living on another planet over recent months. To break it down in a nutshell what JORUN does .... hr finds a classic Hip Hop record that never came with an official instrumental, and he starts from scratch (excuse the intentional pun) to re-create the beat sample by sample. Sound easy? Well trust me it certainly isn't. But JORUN is a living breathing beathead and a master of diggin' through his dusty old records looking for that half a bar which so-and-so used on this or that classic track. It would take me forever just to name all the samples let alone re-create it piece by piece. Listen closely, and if you're in doubt then take a listen to the original. See ... I told you so!

The Incredible Jorun Bombay, he just keeps on suprising. What a Pitch Perfect ear he obviously has. Really hard to tell the difference between the orig. Respek!
