Inspiration for a cool sample

One of my favourite Aussie rappers is Urthboy.  He’s upbeat and positive, he’s also pretty aware of currents issues, as exampled in his song “Nambucca Boy” dedicated to Phil Hughes and his family.

The inspiration for a cool sample comes from his 2012 album “Smokey’s Haunt” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey%27s_Haunt) track 10 “Glimpses” feat. Jane Tyrell and Jimblah.

Throughout the song there is a really good vocal sample in the background that plays during the chorus and outro. I’ve read the liner notes and it doesn’t mention where the sample is from or who did it, however, the producers are Elgusto and Countbounce. I immediately started to really enjoy the sample and how it added to the mood of the song and also the effects applied to it.
