The 'Amen' Break

I encourage all my friends out there into music to check this link out!

A musicologist deconstructs the origins of modern hip-hop/electronica by detailing how a simple 6 sec drum riff from a 1969 sould/R&B recording became the backbone for an entire subculture of musical expression.

I guarantee you'll never hear modern music the same way again, as I found myself picking the 'Amen' break out in several pieces I own (Aphex Twin and Basehead to name two).
