Here’s a version of the classic Stormy Monday by legend Isacc Hayes.

Isaac Hayes of course is one of the most sampled acts.  His grooves were perfect for hip hop and trip hop.  As many of you know, I view the sampling of Ike’s Rap Part II by Portishead back in the 90s as a classic.

… and here’s the copper bottomed classic Walk On By

Hayes’ version of Walk On By slays me every time I hear it – the killer groove, the big build into the guitar motif.  Incredible!
