Sampling a rock record in order to make a rap beat is very common, almost as much as sampling a soul record. What’s uncommon is sampling minstrels music from the middle ages. A minstrel was an european bard who performed songs that told incredible stories of far away places or of made-up historical events. Initially they were performing only for the high society but later on many became wandering minstrels.Their music was made with particular instruments such as Lira, Organetto, Fidel, Glocken and others.

Here’s a preview of the instrumental I came up with by sampling an old record of minstrels music. This rap beat was sold as an exclusive beat and is no longer for sale, but I do have many minstrels records, so if you want to try something different and original, feel free to contact us.
