To celebrate WhoSampled’s 3rd Birthday, we’re hijacking Mixcloud’s monthly residency at the Big Chill House, King’s Cross, London.
And we’re starting it with a very special event: a live interview with original members of the legendary Mohawks, the band that brought us ‘The Champ’, one of the most sampled records in history.
The interview will form a part of a WhoSampled meetup where members of our community and supporters of... the site can get together and talk about music, sampling and crate digging as well as meet the Mohawks and ask them some questions with us.
For the party, we’ve got a killer lineup of beat maestros including Mark Rae (Rae & Christian / Grand Central), Chris Read (BBE / Radio 1Xtra / Substance), Huskiii (Fftang! Fftang!) as well as WhoSampled’s own DJs, all doing unique sets that celebrate music’s present as well as its past. Furthermore, BBE Records will be taking over the 2nd room upstairs to launch their 15th birthday celebrations.
Don't tell us it is not enough for you to come down to this celebration of great music and make some noise!
