The song is Strokin' by Dynasty. A nice disco/soul/r&b transition tune from the early 1980s (82). A time I like to call, "The time at which all potentially great sampling songs were created." For future versions of this article, you'll see why. The song may be a bit boring for ilictronix, but the opening/chorus sample is straight up phenomenal. If you recognize it right away, bravo. If you don't, that's okay. If you want to test yourself, don't look at the next few tracks.

For you electro fans, a signal went off in your head "OMFG THIS IS *********" I give you a nice high five, fan of music. Although you may have gotten the first sample, the one after this may come as a surprise.
Okay, you guessed it. It's a Mehdi + T-Bang's Signatune. To be honest, I've never even heard the "original" nor do I know of its existence. I'll let the comments explain this to me. This song takes the original Dynasty Sample, speeds it up, and cuts it like none other. This song is powerful, catchy, and sticks in your head forever. Definitely goes on my top 10 list. I fucking love this song.

Now for the lesser-known sampling, courtesy of sampling god Dave Armstrong - the French Pryda if you will. This one's much lighter, and can be tolerated by more people than Mehdi's repetitive banger. I like this one, and I recently bought Dave Armstrong's "Love Has Gone EP" which I highly recommend - it's chock full of remixes and vocal edits. Now for the tune.

Enjoy, and appreciate the 80s because without it, house would suck,
