Earlier this month at The Great Escape in Brighton, WhoSampled hosted its first ever Samplethon.

Run as part of tech mini-conference Blueprint, the sampling database got a group of producers in a room, gave them pre-cleared access to music from the Boosey & Hawkes and Cavendish catalogues, and then gave them a few hours to create their own new music.

We interviewed WhoSampled’s James Hamlin about the event in the run-up to it, which you can read here. And now you can check out some footage of the Samplethon in action too, if you weren’t able to make it down and see it for yourself.
