I picked this tune for Roy Ayers’ first outing in the sampled by series due to the sun peeking out today in whats been an erratic summer so far here in the UK. Hopefully the smooth soulful groove will entice it out a few more times. Anyway Roy Ayers is a bit of a legendary Jazz musician from LA who started young and went onto release numerous albums and soundtrack various movies. This came out in 1976 on the LP of the same name and I’m sure will be familiar…

Also hailing from LA E-Rule is an independant MC who came out the blue to drop this wicked cut back in ’94 and never really was able to come back with anything as good afterwards. He had a few releases towards the end of the 90’s but like i say they drifted in obscurity. So here’s E-Rule debut which looks like it’s gonna be his finest hour, enjoy.
