AMEN BREAK: The history of The Winston's track in 6 minutes

Huh, never knew this. So much from a 6 second sample.

Re: AMEN BREAK: The history of The Winston's track in 6 minutes

Haven't had a chance to watch the videos, but I'm familiar with the prevalence of the break. It's definitely legendary among people involved in music production, even hobbyists, and whole genres have been built on it (drum 'n bass).

Maybe this is covered in the videos, but there was a crowdfunding effort awhile back that ended up raising money for one of The Winstons because they never got paid royalties:

There’s something that bugs me about hearing a proper English accent talk about rap music.
