What are some of your favorite breaks/breakbeats?

For example some of mine are from:

Medinski Martin & Wood - We’re So Happy

Sly & The Family Stone - Are You Ready

The Winstons - Amen Brother

Steve Miller Band - Take the Money and Run

Herbie Hancock - Palm Grease

There are quite a few others I’m sure.

What are yours? Feel free to leave a youtube link.

Break can be heard at 1:04

Lunch Break.

Other than that, I like the Italian Amen. No really it’s a thing.

One of my favourites is the Beastie Boys POW break, I’ve used it on one of my tunes but never heard it anywhere else except John Frusciante’s PBX Funicular thingy (which I was a bit underwhelmed with tbh). It’s at 0:41 in this video:

I don’t really know how to use quotes on a mobile device, but to Rex and Haqq: that is one hell of a badass break. I wonder if it was originally sampled from somewhere else. Great use of the break though. Very funky.

It isn’t Mike D playing?

Yeah it’s Mike D playing, the beasties did a number of wicked live instrumental tracks around the Check Your Head / Ill Communication era and they were all put on a compilation CD pictured in the video, which is the only beastie boys CD I ever bought.

I’m also a big fan of Terry Date production for heavier drum sounds, here’s a couple of beauts right at the start of the tracks:

it is some awesome double bass drumming (whatever you call it) that i cut out before, but i never have made it work into anything.

like programming kick drums in that sort of style. unfortunately, people i know in person are mostly like ‘yeah, stop doing that’ :unsure:

ok, it might seem like eh, i dunno… but, it’s panned really hard. take only the left channel for a long good break without the ‘ting dinga ling’ stuff. is awesome, it is! or the other channel if you want the aux percussion stuff. dogs have it made!

Fausto Papetti - Love’s Theme

Paz - Laying Eggs

Tower Of Power - Squib Cakes

Bernard Purdie - Ad Lib

& whatever this one is, I’m sure it’s sampled but I only know of it from here
