the amen break and the funky drummer are so similar, how does anyone but the artist know what was originally sampled after the break was 'jungled' with all the beats moved around and changed up? its easy to tell the two apart in the old skool 'straight outta compton' rap, but in that 90's jungle-skuttlebutt how can the listener differenciate? awesome video btw, the winstons were on a 60's funk comp I once had but lost. word

I can usually tell when the Amen Break is used as the source sound, even if it's been pitched and sliced. There's just something about the snare ring and kick drum resonance. The same goes for a few JB beats.

They really should retire the thing, though. But this was an interesting study & commentary, nonetheless.
