Amen Break

Link: Amen break – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

“This fascinating, brilliant 20-minute video narrates the history of the
“Amen Break,” a six-second drum sample from the b-side of a
chart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively in
early hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis for
drum-and-bass and jungle music — a six-second clip that spawned
several entire subcultures. Nate Harrison’s 2004 video is a meditation
on the ownership of culture, the nature of art and creativity, and the
history of a remarkable music clip.”
