Just yesterday Shadetek & I were wondering about the sample Conquest uses in “Forever”. Veiled Gazette points out this post, which locates the source sample for that, as well as a few other dubsteppey tunes from Burial (Sizzla!), etc.
The roaring crowd noise made it obvious that Conquest sampled a live show — Jamaican soundclash/gig footage has provided a notorious wealth of samples and entire acappellas for the last 15 years or more. Turns out that it was Barrington Levy, riffing slack on the ‘Here I Come’ riddim!
