So not interested in yet another story about a jaded, alcoholic detective avenging a bunch of brutally refrigerated women.
Ever wondered where that scratchy voice saying “f-f-f-rrreeeesssshhh” on every second ’80s rap record actually originated from? Or who originally sang the chorus of Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock? Look no further…
"At number 7 we’re back to the breaks with the easily recognizable “Long Red (Live)” by US 70’s blues-rockers Mountain. Aside from the popular drums-only breakbeat (a notable favourite of none other than the late, great J Dilla), the call-outs to the crowd on this live recording have been sampled many times. Check the intros on Nas‘s “It Ain’t Hard to Tell” and A Tribe Called Quest‘s “Jazz (We’ve Got) (Re-Recording)” for some classic examples. Dilla’s “Stepson of the Clapper” from his legendary album “Donuts” is almost an ode to the break itself, and well worth a listen, and Kanye Westkept up the tradition by using the sample several times in the last 4 years.”
