Xmas Sampling

 American beatmaster Casta is the king of Xmas sampling. We only discovered him last year, with this album, but allready in 2011 he made his first sample album on his own bandcamp. So this 2021 version of '12 Beats Of Christmas" is his '10the Anniversary Edition'. Most of  the 16 tracks are named after know Christmas songs, but the originals are hard to discover. For example 'O Tannebaum' starts with a short  violin moment of that known song, but continues as a string driving beats track, that ends with some movie samples. Very original and cool Xmas music! 

In 1985 there were no fancy sample machines. So we had to do it with taperecorders, turntables and cassettedecks. That's the way I (aka Grandmaster O)  made my Soundpieces released on my various artists cassettes in the eighties.
