Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

There are times, in my wannabe-producer mode, when I hear a song that I think should be sampled the hell out of. And when you see that come to fruition, it's like a little bit of confirmation that you aren't completely running on a low tank of gas. Well the first time I heard Shirley Ellis's "Clapping Song", I knew immediately that it was a bad mamma jamma that needed to be looped up. Well sure enough, Timbaland has sampled the goodness in Izza Kizza's "Walk The Dawg". Enjoy.

I heard Afrika Bambaataa used to spin "The Clapping Song" back in his South Bronx party days. Wish I could have seen that.

Man, these last few posts have been amazing. Keep up the good work fellers! I've become more and more out of the "hip-hop" loop. It's nice to see you guys holding it down with some nice gems.

BTW, have you heard of Kutiman from Israel? I think there's a post to be found in his stuff...
