Czar's Sample of the Week

What's up Tim stans? I was out of town for the weekend so I couldn't do the sample of the week last Friday, but I will try to make up for it with the sample(s) today. But before I go into the sample(s) of the week, some of y'all have been e-mailing me and such asking when Volume 8 was going to come out. Well, I planned to get it out at the end of last month, but it just didn't work out. So expect it to come out this month! Now let's move on to Czar's Sample(s) of the Week.

Since I was late for the sample of the week, I thought that I'd showcase multiple samples off one of my favorite Tim tracks: Nicole Wray's "Make it Hot." One thing that made me appreciate this track more than I had before was when I learned that Tim sampled from at least THREE tracks to make this beat. I say at least three because I only know of three tracks that he sampled, but there's no doubt in my mind that there are more sampled songs in that track. What's interesting about these three known tracks that Tim sampled for "Make it Hot" is that they're all by the same band and off the same album: The Art of Noise's 1984 album, "(Who's AFraid Of?) The Art of Noise." The little saw sound that leads into each verse on "Make it Hot" is sampled from the track "Who's Afraid (Of the Art of Noise)." The main beat on the second verse of the Nicole Wray track is from the song "Snapshot" of the Art of Noise album. Lastly, around 2:16 on "Make it Hot" you'll hear a "ba ba ba" sound in the background. Well, that sound is sampled from "Beat Box (Diversion One)." Tim stans will recognize the opening of "Beat Box" because it was also sampled for the beat switch in 1 Life 2 Live's "Can't Nobody" track off Tim's Bio.

So that's it for this week's (or last week's?!?!?!) installment of Czar's Sample of the Week. Check back on Friday where I'll showcase another hot Timbo sample or samples...
