Sampled/Covered by Italians

By mashhouse mashhouse
updated 2 months ago

This list is compiled with all the original tunes that have been used to create many (if not all, lol) of the tunes on the Italo House scene. Loads of known, widely used vocals and riffs plus some which only had a few words sampled. The list also includes any of the tunes that the Italian's covered.

To me, it's nice to know where all the samples came from. Included in the description of each tune is a list of the Italo tunes where they feature. Noted that there may be some tunes missing in the descriptions and any info for anymore is very much appreciated. Just drop me a message if you can think of any that aren't in the descriptions :)

Kindly put together by myself and members of Italo House Radio
