Who sampled who ? Galvanize your sample knowledge with Najat Aatabu

chemI find it very interesting to compare an original sampled record with another one that has sampled it. Most people have virtually no interest in that which is a shame cause it shows the musical influences of a band and can therefore increase your musical knowledge and culture. Galvanize, from Chemical brothers’s last album, Push the button, made me discover Najat Aâtabou, a Moroccan singer, songwriter and composer. Although she is perhaps best known for her song “Hadi Kedba Bayna” (“Just Tell Me The Truth”) which was sampled by the Chemical Brothers on their song Galvanize, as a song writer and singer she told the story of the modern Moroccan woman and tried to improve feminism in Morocco. “Hedi Kedba Bayna” is from 1987 and was extremely popular throughout the whole Arab world, Spain and France. Hedi Kedba Bayna is about a woman whose husband is cheating on her. The title literally means “This lie is obvious”. The Chemical Brothers are a well known English duo of electronic music with an slight hip-hop and funky edge. Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons were also pioneers of the big beat electronic dance genre in the 1990s. Galvanize, which features Q-Tip on vocals, was the first single to be taken from Push the Button, and premiered exclusively on Itunes. The single has won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording in February 2006.
