Trigger-Happy | Sample & Example

Well, my Best of 2010 artist compilations have been completed (I'm waiting to release the last one just in time for Christmas) and I'm now working on my annual Samples of the Year list. As I've been digging through the e-crates, I came across two tracks by new school artists Dom Kennedy and Wiz Khalifa that share a similarity: they each sample a song from the 1995 video game Chrono Trigger, performed by Japanese video game composer Yasunori Mitsuda. This takes me back...

SAMPLE: Schala's Theme (Chrono Trigger OST)
EXAMPLE: Wiz Khalifa - Never Been (Kush and Orange Juice)

SAMPLE: Secret of the Forrest (Chrono Trigger OST)
EXAMPLE: Dom Kennedy - Locals Only (From the Westside with Love)
