Edwin Birdsong, a keyboard player and producer whose blend of funk, jazz and disco music from the 1970s and ′80s developed a cult following and was sampled by a later generation of artists, died on Jan. 21 in Inglewood, Calif. The percussion and bass line of Rapper Dapper Snapper were an important part of Me, Myself and I, the breakout hit on De La Soul’s debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising (1989). The song was also sampled on the Gang Starr song Skills in 2003. Cola Bottle Baby, an energetic tribute to women of a certain shape, became the basis of a very different kind of dance music when the French electronic duo Daft Punk used it for the hit Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger on their second album, Discovery (2001)
