Hip-hop producers The Dust Brothers are on my shortlist of people who I would like to work with someday (if I could actually afford them).
Contrary to popular belief, sampling and mixing is an artform.
Some people do it very well.
The Dust Brothers, The X-Ecutioners, or The Bomb Squad come to mind.
Some people are just talentless hacks.
MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice come to mind.
In the meantime, unless a million dollars falls into my lap, I will have to do this sort of thing by myself.
