Guest Mix: Kensaye – Original Classics (2012)

Have a great day with this new guest mix by London-based producer, rapper & radio-host Kensaye. A true selection full of originals to dig for samples! Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, The Temptations, Nina Simone… up to you to link them to the matching hip hop songs. 

Kensaye: “I’m a producer who often digs for samples, so It’s always interesting to discover what was the original track of some of my favourite Hip Hop tunes, and what helped create that classic. Here are a few examples, let’s see if you can associate them to the Hip Hop version instantly. I’ll reveal it all in a couple of days. PS: there is a trick one!” 

Kensaye is a producer, radio-host and rapper from Paris. He currently lives in London, and produces for an array of different artists. You can catch his radio show on Ness Radio every friday 1 to 3 pm.
