Music: The “Amen Break” & the birth of UK breakbeat [video]


I posted this on Facebook but it has to be bookmarked here too…

This video is a recording of a dub plate made on the history of 6 second break from the b side of a 7″ single released in 1969 which spawned the breakbeat scene in the UK that was so close to my heart as a rave DJ back then. It’s just extraordinary to know just how far this loop has spread and how it’s still used to this day. Check it out, it rocks.
