Just Us – Cloudbusting

One of our favorite and most extensive sample replays for a while here – recreating the entirety of Kate Bush’s Cloudbusting as sampled and reworked for the clubs by Just Us (formerly under the title “Every time it rains”). This sample replay required us to replay all 5 minutes of the sample involving an iconic vocal performance, live strings, Fairlight CMI samples and eventually a full choir, all recorded on vintage 80s equipment! All good fun.

Alan Lomax Prison Blues sample replays for Spinnin

Some of the most heartfelt and characterful recordings ever made are Alan Lomax’s legendary 20th century field recordings of folks and roots music from across america. For client Rene Amesz & Ferreck Dawn we recreated 2 of the prison blues songs they sampled. We faithfully use early 20th century vintage recording equipment to ensure the retro sound so critical to the samples is maintained.

Coldcut – Only Heaven feat. Roots Manuva

Great collab between legends Coldcut and Roots Manuva with Replay Heaven team doing all the retro orchestra and celeste elements.

Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup “Sugar Man”

We did the sample replay of this classic Rodriguez anthem.

Rat Boy

Rat Boy’s amazing debut album is built on a massive mashup of diverse samples, bringing back the memory of the golden early days of sampling like Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique. Doing this legally is a massive minefield, but it’s all under control, with Replay Heaven recreating many classic sounds in the background!

Armand Van Helden – Wings

We recreated this classic 80s track – I Won’t Let You Down by pHD for Armand Van Helden. By having a sample replay rather than using the original sample, Armand has access to the stems and so can use the vocal without the backing and the backing without the vocals etc at different points in the track.

Chase and Status – Spoken Word

We did this sample replay of Rozalla Everybody’s Free for Chase and Status:

High Contrast – Remind Me

A lovely Aretha Franklin vocal sample replay here we did for High Contrast

Lots of Marvin Gaye!

Marvin Gaye vocals have been very in vogue for the past few years and we have several vocalists who are great at Marvin impressions, and a collection of original 1960s valve equipment to capture the vintage sonics beautifully. Here are 2 recent Marvin Gaye sample replays we have done recently with different singers.

Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP – Soul Makossa (Money)

This job was one of the most fun ones we have ever done, with Replay Heaven working on the Sample Replay’s for the funk band, brass, sax and deep vocals!

Philip George & Anton Powers – Alone No More

Vocals provided by Replay Heaven for another Philip George UK smash hit.

Format:B – Chunky

Sample replay by Replay Heaven. Artist supplied their own chicken though.

Nick Brewer – Talk To Me ft. Bibi Bourelly

Replay Heaven providing the Gypsy Woman backing replay for this hit.

Tazer x Tink – Wet Dollars

Replay Heaven recreated the Biggie rap elements for the track.

Sigala – Easy Love

Replay Heaven recreated the Jacksons parts for this dance smash.

Alesso – Cool

Nice use of a Kylie Minogue sample (!!) as the backing here, replayed by Replay Heaven

The Chemical Brothers – Born In The Echoes

Replay Heaven worked for The Chemical Brothers on multiple replay elements for their album “Born In The Echoes”. Here are two tracks from the album featuring vocal elements from the Replay Heaven team, “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted” and “Go”.

Ludacris – This Has Been My World

Nice Michael Jackson replay we did for Just Blaze producing Ludacris. I like the way he has taken advantage of getting the stems off us to bring elements in and out, which you can’t do with a normal sample.

Alex Adair – Make Me Feel Better

A beautiful track with all vocal sample recreated by Replay Heaven.

Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo – Rhymes

Replay Heaven recreated the Busta Rhymes / Missy Elliot / Daft Punk vocal sample for this club smash
