spotted this one in Logic's link to the http://xeon4.xeonserver.net/~bbww/samples/breakspack/ as well...  was thinking of writing a bio for MC Duke...

Jump Up Crew  -  Come Again  (Labello Blanco, 1993)
Progression  -  On A Rubbish Tip  (Ruff Tuff Wicked Stuff, 1992)

i think it may be same break for
Hyper-On Experience - Lords Of The NUll Lines (Foul Play Remix)
but haven't checked just yet

Think we can call this break a 2nd generation break too - based around "Funky Drummer"

"I created the drums on 'I'm Riffin' just using a bunch of samples from my collection, sorry I cannot remember exactly where each one came from but they are individual samples then played in my sequence with my scratch and a roll. I remember the tambourine sample is more than one beat and on reflection now I would probably make it a swing beat sequence instead."

- Simon Harris

:ok:

Good stuff!

Don't think it is much more than a re-sequenced "Funky Drummer" - although no doubt Simon Harris beefed it up wtih other hits and samples

... i dont recognize the funky drummer in there i do believe it was build up from scratch. Best breakbeat ever if you ask me. Btw the drumroll is taken from The Headhunters - God Make Me Funky

thanx for break)

_____________________________________________________________

why did ask for this one? i found the information on discogs.com that some sample from MC Duke – I'm Riffin' is taken for The Prodigy - "Everybody In The Place (155 And Rising)" (Experience, 1992)

but the vocals are taken from "music of life - hustler convention" live LP ant the break is not the same as in MC Duke – I'm Riffin' (or i'm mistaken?).
so, is this information correct? (for example, it's also said that "Jericho" samples 'Doomsday Of Rap' by Hijack, but the vocal sample is taken from 'Badman Is Robbin''). :smile:

i've got the original and the 1990 remix of i'm riffin' and i can't hear anything from either of them in the prodigy track. whoever made that claim is way off.
on the subject of the break itself, i dont hear any funky drummer, but i think there's more than a little 'do this my way' in there. i'd say that makes it a 3rd generation beat??

The "I'm Riffin" track by MC Duke uses two breaks. The main musical sample is 'Funky Like A Train" by Eddie Grants old group called The Equals and the the recreated Funky Drummer drum pattern kick and snare is Funk Inc. - Kool is Back
