Universal Production Music, the world’s leading production
music company, today announced the vinyl release of ‘Samplethon – Digging The Bruton
Vaults’ (BR651), a unique collection of tracks that samples music from the widely-acclaimed
For the release, Universal Production Music worked with WhoSampled, the world’s leading
online destination for fans of sampled music, cover songs and remixes. With their assistance,
some of the most sought-after samples were pulled from the Vaults and given to twenty up-and-
coming producers at ‘Samplethon,’ an exclusive event at Metropolis where producers compete to create new
music based on the archive materials. The result is a limited edition 10″ vinyl which showcases
tracks created using samples from the Bruton Vaults, putting a new and innovative spin on
these classic recordings.
Bruton Music has long been a name synonymous with high-quality production music, with its
vast catalogue spanning over 40 years of tracks. Originally aimed at Film, Television and Radio,
the catalogue is frequently used by producers, crate-diggers and DJs alike, taking on a life of its
own outside of the production music sphere.
Bruton samples have also been used in a variety of well-known tracks. Artists including
Kaytranada, Gang Starr, Erykah Badu have all sampled music from this diverse collection,
recognising the quality and adapting it to great effect. Many records from the catalogue have
since become collector’s items for well-respected DJs and other musicians.
The Bruton Samplethon vinyl is sold by BBE Records at £10 each. Distribution is within the UK
and the product is available for purchase at the BBE store and online worldwide: https://www.facebook.com/thebbestore/
