Sampled Environments for Inspiration and Kickass Creation

We’ve all seen the sampled tracks where someone painstakingly takes an object, records 60 sounds with it and edits it back together. Coming from a drumming background, this fascinates me as I make a beat on any object I encounter purely out of habit. There’s been a recent “revival” of these sampled environments due to technology, bordem and shear creativity. Here are a few kickass beats from objects that are sure to inspire you but at the very least, give you a soundtrack for a few minutes of your day.
