Problem: You love Massive Attack. You love samples. You love samples used by Massive Attack. Yet, in the 10+ years the band has been in existence, never before have you been able to find all those samples neatly compiled into one convenient compact disc.
Solution: Blammo! Until now, that is! The nice people over at Rapster Records have worked their sample-compiling magic on the legendary Bristol trip-hop group's catalogue in the same vein as the label's 2007 release, Discovered, a collection of songs sampled by Daft Punk. This means you get samples, you get covers, you get that "Be Thankful For What You've Got" song stuck in your head all day!
The collection, entitled Protected: Massive Samples, is due February 17, 2009 and is intended to coincide with the release of the rumoured to-be-upcoming Massive Attack album, tentatively titled Weather Underground.
