Paul C is found in the ghost notes, the incidental sounds created when samples react to each other in the same space. ; like when he crashed “Funky Drummer” into Dee’s “Time,” isolating the drums in the meantime, it was a profound moment in Hip Hop history: the introduction, essentially, of the “chop & pan”, techniques forever repeated that would change the music (Must have made James Brown & Clyde Stubblefield proud). Paul C was a master at innovating such production techniques with confining technology, trumping the sound.
