Darien Victor Birks Giveth Food

By Jason H. / 03.21.10

When it comes to digging, I’m a little jealous of this new generation. It’s quite easy to just get on a search engine, type in the desired cut and poof – your sample is revealed. Now I’m not a record snob. There are many samples I get stumped on too and I’ve found myself getting on the net to answer those quandaries. But there are thousands upon thousands of songs to go through. How then does a padawan graduate to Jedi status in the sample game? My best advice would have to be simply music appreciation.

Once again the homie Darien Victor Birks – the man who differentiates mix from mix-tape – brings another primer to those who like to hear the originals to familiar old treats. Now if you want to reach DJ Muro or Ken Sport status – you need to put your work in. For now you can groove to another Flwrpt mix that you can light one up to.
