The Dubstep Yamo B There Connection

Pangaea is a producer in the Dubstep vein that I like quite a lot for being one of the guys who resists the siren call of the obnoxious wobble bass.

He’s not about a bit of appropriation, specifically the chopped, screwed, and pitch-shifted R&B Vocal thing that Burial employed to great affect on his long player Untrue. He also share’s Burial’s love of ElB’s chicken scratch 2 step beats. He’s not a complete Burial clone though, but he definitely scratches some of the same itches for me.

But whether or not he’s original or derivative is irrelevant to this post; what I’m wondering is if my suspicions are true and his track “Router” contains a vocal sample of comedy punching bag Michael McDonald, of the Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, and Ya Mo B There fame. It sure sounds like it, though I can’t identify the particular track. Furthermore, tracking it down would require listening to the Michael Macdonald oeuvre, something that could put me right over the fucking edge.

The most unfortunate Michael Mcdonald picture I could find.

UPDATE

I found the track Pangaea sampled: Baby I’m For Real. God what a slab of shite.
