Cloudkicker’s Remix LP + Homegrown Treat

This past week at the TROY forum, a new poster named darkO uploaded this album I never knew existed. The Cloudkickers = Dj Eli [of Juggaknots and Night Train Radio fame] and Shan Boogs. The album is full of remixes of songs you know and love, and some you might not have liked the originals. Drizzle provided us with the tracklist and noted how dope the interludes were. I love me some ill interludes, so this prompted me to immediately check this album out.

Upon further inspection of this album, I immediately recognized the sample on Interlude #7.
I used it myself back in maybe 2003-2004, for an instrumental. I also incorporated another sample from a song that has been flipped many times, even recently. Hmmm, DOOM? Can you catch it?

Cloudkickers – Interlude #7


Verge – Rainy Blaze




Let me know what you think up in the comments.
For more Juggaknots and Cloudkickers material, refer back to our Fondle ‘Em Collection.

There may be a reworking of those interludes soon. So stay tuned.
Also, darkO noted that the Kokomo sample was also used for Smif n’ Wessun – Recognize.
I haven’t heard that cut in years so I’ll have to investigate.
Thanks to darkO and drizzle on the download and assist.
