This edition of True Love Tuesdays is dedicated to the true friend and supporter of trippin’ the rift (and my personal friend as well) Jutta H. In one of our e-conversations we talked about classical music and Jutta said that many classical composers would probably create music similar to trip-hop if they lived in our time. Which made me remember the role classical music already does play in trip-hop. And I’m not even talking about artists like Amon Tobin, whose music goes far beyond any genre definitions, I’m talking about direct involvement of classical music in creating trip-hop compositions. Yes, this post is about samples taken from classical pieces and used in trip-hop (and related styles) tracks. I will let the music speak for itself. Some of the samples are very prominent, some used very subtly. See if you can spot them!

So, maybe it’s time to stop surfing the net looking for something new, and dust off some of your grandpa’s old records?

Can you name some other examples of classical music used in trip-hop songs? I’d love to hear them!
