Nils Frahm & Bob James

Nils Frahm is a unique multitalented artist that I really love. His way of combining beautiful melodies in an electronic context is mind-blowing. Not only is he a superb songwriter and keyboard performer but also a fantastic producer and a great sound engineer.
Here is a tribute mix in 2 parts with some of his amazing work.
Lay back and enjoy the magic sound of a true hero!

Bob James, one of my all-time favourite heroes. I discovered him in the late 80s, when all hip-hop-records was sampling his masterpieces.
Some of the songs is featured with samples in as many as 400 records, so you’ll probably recognise a lot of stuff 😉
Lay back and enjoy the jazzy and funky show!

Tracks in this mix is sampled by Röyksopp, Black Eyed Peas, The Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack, Soul II Soul, Tjuvjakt, Boys Noize, Aphex Twin, Beastie Boys, NWA, Run-DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, Mary J Blige, R. Kelly, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, EPMD, Ice-T, 2Pac, Todd Terry, Armand Van Helden, Puff Daddy, PM Dawn, Wu-Tang Clan, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Arrested Development & Eric B & Rakim to name a few.
