Louth Contemporary Music Society sampled by Grammy nominee

Louth Contemporary Music Society can boast the rare privilege of being sampled by two musical heavyweights in the one year.

Earlier this year the society’s 2014 project The Song of Songs was sampled by this year’s Electric Picnic headliners The XX, on their song ‘Lips’ which is on their new album ‘I See You’. More recently, Grammy nominated artist Mike Posner, sampled their recording on his song ‘My Beloved’, which is being released as part of his new collaboration with Blackbear, whose name is Mansionz.
