Hendrix Sample Hip Hop Loop (We’ve Got To Live Together)

cd-cover_jimifillmoreIn the midst of a Hendrix jam out sesh the other night I stumbled upon the album Live at The Fillmore East.  Within this album is a tasty little jam called “We Gotta Live Together“. The song in it’s entirety is very groovy, but at about 6:05 in there’s a bar of groovy goodness that I just had to loop into a sample.  Digi drums, organ, and a driving orchestra section was added, along with a verse from “Combat”, a song off the Fight With Tools album by Flobots.  I tried my best but my rap skills definitely need some work.  🙂

This is my first real attempt at a hiphop loop, hoping to work on more sample tracks soon.  It’s available for download at our Soundcloud site here:

Mostly instrumental, so feel free to put your own spin on it and send it back!  We just might post it up!!!
