This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Cymande December 5, 2020

Cymande are a British Funk group that were active between 1971 and 1974. They are excellent and were ‘discovered’ again by many in the 80’s and 90’s with some of their music being used as samples for other tracks. They reformed for special reunion gigs from 2006 to the present.

The Fugees “The Score” uses a sample from ‘Dove’.
De la Soul ‘Change in Speak” uses a sample from ‘Bra’.
Has a list of a load of tracks that used Cymande samples…..
