Hi everyone!

My name is Denzel and I am a second year part-timer. I’m officially downloading my thoughts directly to this post!

I wanted to share a a couple of things that were very helpful for me in my research into music sampling, which is a large part of my work. The first is a piece of writing about the cultural and legal origins of music sampling from a perspective of hiphop, and the other is a link to the gov.uk website regarding “orphan works”, works that have a copyright holder but those holders can’t be contacted.

You can find both of these below, let me know what you think.

Cheerio!
