possibly the most used and sampled breakbeat of all time. comes from the winston brothers' "amen brother" used mainly in drum 'n' bass, jungle, even some hip hop. chances are, if you listen to dnb, then you've heard it at least once.
the amen break is cool because it is so heavily compressed and it doesn't sound like banging on a tin can when you speed it up.
