Building Blocks Of Our Society

I have never been a beat junkie / sample spotter type, maybe in the future i can look forward to listening to music with analytic intensity and not so much raving.

The immensity and relevance of the 'Amen Brother' break to hip-hop, rave, jungle and ragga is astounding, and this deadpan documentary about these six seconds of frantic drumming explores the history of the loop, breaking down its application and giving key examples of use.

Thanks to Gavin for the heads up on this.
