WhoSampled is a website and app database of information about sampled music or sample-based music, cover songs and remixes.

History[edit]

Nadav Poraz founded the site in London, England, in 2008, as a way to track musical samples and cover songs. Mobile apps were released in 2012 and 2014 for iPhone and Android, respectively.[5] The website's database is user-generated and reviewed by moderators before the content goes live. As of 2016, the site's most sampled track is the Amen break from The Winstons.[6] In 2015, the site added support for film and television clips.[7] The following year, it partnered with Spotify[8] and introduced a six degrees of separation-inspired game that tracks relationships between artists, producers, and their tracks.[9]
