Black Milk ft Melanie Rutherford – “Simply Having”

When Paul McCartney’s not busy reuniting and fronting Nirvana, he may find his catchy Christmas synth-singalong “Wonderful Christmastime” being sampled and flipped into a R&B cut for the festive season by Detroit’s Black Milk.


Black Milk ft Melanie Rutherford – “Simply Having”


Those acidic yet warm, reverb-heavy key stabs you hear throughout come from the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 synthesizer.

It is estimated that Sir Paul makes over $400,000 per year from this song. Wonderful Christmastime, indeed.


(And if you’re a fan of that Prophet-5 keyboard line, De La Soul’s sampling of the same Paul McCartney original for their track “Simply” is definitely worth checking out.)
