Here we’re presented with further testimony on what some consider to be the most significant sampler in Hip-Hop. Two Hand Band serves up a brief history of the MPC, its creation by Roger Linn, and the effect it’s had on the creation of contemporary music. The segment also interviews with Damu The Fudgemunk, P-Fritz, K-Murdock reflecting on their personal feeling towards the line of samplers and the other famous users who’ve used the device to establish their signature sounds. Crate Kings favorite Damu even gives a quick demo how the machine works.
