DJ SHADOW : Midnight In A Perfect World (1996)

This is one of the main tracks off his classic debut album, using a multitude of samples. In particular, his use of a David Axelrod sample turned a lot of other DJs onto the producer. In fact, this album is in the Guiness Book of World Records for being the first record to be created entirely out of sampled music!
