about the artist:
In a world where the practice of crate digging hardly exists anymore, sampling artist The Old Garden remains adamant about keeping his samples strictly vinyl.

The unearthing of lost beats and grooves, an analog detachment from this digital era, provides him with the raw material for making tracks, preferably on the MPC: tiny bits and pieces from old records, replayed and layered in conjunction with other sounds, shaped into dusty, jazzy loops.

By stressing the importance of vinyl records for the beat making process, The Old Garden relies heavily on those who have dropped knowledge before him. His influences include the drum patterns of hip hop veteran Pete Rock and the raw sampling technique featured on early Jungle Brothers releases.
