Legendary and groundbreaking cut and paste hip-hop track created by Double Dee And Steinski
as an entry for a mixing contest.
The contest was held by Tommy Boy
Records to remix G.L.O.B.E. and Whiz Kid
's Play That Beat Mr. DJ
to create extra interest in the track.
Their winning entry took that track and seamlessly spliced in segments of Humphrey Bogart
, The Supremes
' Stop In The Name Of Love
, Grandmaster Flash
, Bugs Bunny
, dance instructions, Herbie Hancock
, Culture Club
's I'll Tumble 4 Ya
's Last Night A DJ Saved My Life
, Little Richard
and many more to create a track that was stunning to hear when it was first released in 1983.
The track inspired many imitators but still sounds fresh itself today. Unfortunately due to copyright restrictions it`s unavailable to buy but is still possible to obtain via other means.
It`s also known as Lesson One: The Payoff Mix
and was followed later by Lesson Two: The James Brown Mix
and Lesson Three: History Of Hip Hop Mix
All three mixes end with the sample And say childen, what does it all mean?
