    Dueling Bongos by Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band is in
    Chords and Dischords by Paradox.
    Not the main break, thats NT, just the bongo bits, and a few answering drum rolls and such.

    I just checked Paradox-Unnatural Causes, and I'm pretty sure its sampled from Holy Calamity by DJ Shadow, who sampled Kashmere, rather than Kashmere itself. It has a couple of little vocal bits extra.

    note that the break on the original 45 is longer than the one on the album or on most comps (except for the ones that explicitly source the 45)

    Shy FX used the very, very beggining loop from Rappers Delight, in Bambatta.

    Not sure if that was up there or not.

    What about the Helicopter break?

    has anyone ever tried sampling Red Hot Chili Peppers or Primus?

    I heard a TOUGH break at the end of Angry Chair by Alice in Chains.

    Helicopter break is up there as Sesame Street, since that's the name of the track it was sampled from.

    Sweet :thumbup:

    There's quite a few classic breaks missing, only because I haven't been able to find decent examples of dnb using them... Synthetic Substitution, Impeach The President, etc, etc.

    you're not wrong, it's harder than it looks to work backwards from a break to a d&b track...

    I can think of loads of breaks but the neurons stop firing there

    Hi DOA,
    It's nice to come back to the site . My last visit was about a half year ago !

    "Impeach The President" was used by one of my alltime favourite dnb-artists:

    Hidden Agenda - "the flute tone"
    & Agenda's "swing time"

    you might be right, the break is pitched down a bit as well, which is why i thought it was scorpio some time ago.
