New: Frenico featuring Renegade “Mask On”

Upon hearing Frenico‘s new “Halloween Theme”-sampling track “Mask On,” I thought “how many times has this been done before?” A quick search of WhoSampled revealed only once. Hip hop supergroup, TRU sampled John Carpenter’s single piano masterpiece on their 1999 track “Hoody Hoo,” but that was the only registered sample of the Halloween Theme in the whosampled database. The cashing in of this recognizable but not often sampled piano line pays off in “Mask On” which has a perfect feel for this, the beginning of October.
