When I had the news that “Alain Goraguer” passed away a couple weeks ago, the first thing that came through my mind was that I needed to create a mix to highlight the genius behind what might be one of the greatest soundtrack ever. I have to thank Madlib for discovering that album more than 20 years ago, my curiosity of what was sampled for Quasimoto “Come On Feet” is the reason why I came across this amazing piece of work. Little did I know at the time, Madlib was not the first to sample this project and certainly not the last!
I switched things up this time around and selected three tracks from “La Planète Sauvage” (can’t play more if I want the mix to survive on Mixcloud), instead of doing the mix around one song like the first two editions. Since the whole soundtrack is built around a recurrent theme, we still end up with a very cohesive mix, with music from Madlib aka Quasimoto (of course), Flying Lotus, J Dilla, Run The Jewels, Big Pun, Rascalz, Mac Miller and more!
Shoutout to the bible www.whosampled.com! This mix would not exist without their incredible website.
