In 1987, PUBLIC ENEMY redefined rap music and Hip-Hop culture with their explosive debut album, "Yo! Bum Rush The Show". Their subsequent six albums, released over the better part of the next decade, sold millions of copies worldwide.
The New York Times named Public Enemy's "It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back", to their list of "25 Most Significant Albums of the Last Century" and Entertainment Weekly listed their "Fear Of A Black Planet" album to be one of the most important records of the '90s.
Now, with the release of WELCOME TO THE SAMPLEDOME, a "beats and loops" collection, PUBLIC ENEMY have become the first major Hip-Hop act to release such a project.
Having always been pioneers in the art of sampling, PUBLIC ENEMY have constantly pushed the envelope of sound and production, continually driving their quest for new and innovative creations within their music.
The two disc set features over two hours of brand new "beats and loops", presented in a "construction kit" format [fully mixed loops and all of the individual samples used to make up the entire loop]. This enables users to "customize" each loop by using as much or as little of the original loop as you desire.
