Crate digging is a slang term used by DJs to refer to the activity of checking record stores for old, rare or unusual music on the vinyl format, which can be used by DJs,turntablists, or be sampled. Late 1980s house music producers often used 1970s disco records in their songs. In the 1990s and 2000s, hip-hop composers and producers also incorporated elements from old recordings into their songs.
