Below is five songs from up-and-coming artists that have used a non-hip-hop sample to form something new, fresh and different from the original they sampled.

First we start off with the latest song, “Gimme The Beat” by Josh Bonney. I didn’t expect much out of the song until I heard the first 10 seconds and I knew this was going to be a chill hip-hop song that actually samples classic rock, real cool. Follow Josh Bonney on: facebook / twitter

Next we got JAMS, which is a tough artist name to find info on but I finally did. “Puppy Chow” samples “Crave You” from Flight Facilities, a song that has been sampled by Hoodie Allen, G-Eazy and many others but JAMS song sounds different with less of a remix on the original and more showing his talent for rhyming.

The most accomplished artist in this post is DMV-area MC Phil Ade. To remind you, DMV means they are from the Washington DC, Maryland or Virginia area. In “Second Chance” Phil Ade goes over producer Mark Henry’s flip of Peter Bjorn and John‘s “Second Chance”. I love the indie rock sample and Phil Ade kills it on the rhyme.

90’s Finest latest sample gets a big feature from emerging MC Hendersin. Getting Hendersin on the track improves the rhyming, the electro-pop sample turns the song into an electro/hip-hop track which has a nice upbeat sound. Follow 90’s Finest on facebook / twitter

Lastly we end with the most chill yet unusual sample in this post. Luke Christopher samples a melody used in parts of one of my favorite 2011 films, The Social Network and really makes something special. “The Social Network” just stands out as a track. Follow Luke Christopher on: facebook / twitter
