What's That Sound? Edwin Birdsong

Deeply funky Edwin Birdsong played keyboards and organs with a deft touch and an inimitable groove - making him a hot pick for samplists everywhere.

You may be aware of Daft Punk's wholesale rip of his track 'Cola Bottle Baby' - if you aren't you'll either be impressed by their breath-taking audacity or disillusioned when you hear this:

Edwin Birdsong - Rola Cola

Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

The break from the Chemical Brothers 'Morning Lemon' is also an Edwin Birdsong riff, taken from his track 'Rapper Dapper Snapper' and pitched up to energising effect.

Until next time, keep your fingers dusty and your grooves clean.
