I'll start... "Issac Hayes"

Eddie Harris and Herbie Hancock always have a vast plethora of super dope things to sample. Weldon Irvine is a great choice. Of course these guys have been sampled before but, I always manage to find some things that haven't been flipped yet. Than again, I don't mind going to some weird abstract places with my beats.

i'll sample any fugga as long as its roughly 20+ years old and not a fuggin paedo like Gary Glitter or some zhit....

I like going on trips to Germany / France / Switzerland etc to try and find some different stuff....

picked up some really nice stuff last year in Cologne......

I just go down the YouTube wormhole and start adding to my 'sample playlist' as I click through videos, but I'm much more interested in using samples & sounds as waveforms or good one-shots, so my concern for a sample's musicality or quality is less than most. If I start pulling actual music, it's usually funk & disco from Europe, or something like Italo-disco & 80's dance music. I've never had any sort of go-to artists or albums because I don't use my MPC in the same way most people do or make the same music as them.

This is the playlist I put YouTube videos into when I hear something I'd like to grab:

You need to get down w/ 70's Polish jazz.

I always go with classic rock. Everyone is up on grabbing the jazz/RnB/Disco LPs with cats with afros (or bad heads like Isaac Hayes... RIP). But not everyone is up on Classic Rock breaks!
I'm not going to do your assignment for you, but for starters, check out Frank Zappa! Even his fastest BPM songs you can pitch the **** outta them to a slower BPM and chop that funky **** into microns. :smoker:
