Beatminer League: Sample This (Trailer)

Sample This is an upcoming documentary that focuses on the history behind one of the greatest and most sampled breaks in Hip-Hop, and the people involved that created it and the album it appears on, the Apache break by Michael Viner & The Incredible Bongo Band. Any true head should know and acknowledge how this one funky break, complete with organs, wah-wah guitar licks and off-the-chain bongo drumming - has paved the path Hip-Hop has taken. From Sugarhill Gang, to Grandmaster Flash, LL Cool J, Busy B, 2 Live Crew, Run DMC, Kool G Rap, Cypress Hill, The Roots, DJ Shadow and even Mick Jagger has sampled this perfectly crafted, massive song. Throw this on in a middle of a modern rap set and you'll more than likely find a small circle of b-boys getting down to the funky sounds. Expect to hear jewels being dropped from Afrika Bambaataa and all-around-music-authority Questlove. Spotted: egotrip.

As a bonus, we've included another IBB hit, a cover of Iron Butterfly's In-a-gadda-da-vida, clocking in at just under 8 minutes of pure funk. For the impatient ones, the break starts at 3:28.

    My best friends dad used to play the break at 8am in the morning just for laughs after he knew everybody had been drinking the night before.


Mac Miller Flips Billy Joel's 1977 Song, "Vienna"

For sh*ts & giggles, google the cover to the A-side of the original song, "She's Always a Woman" and get weirded out.
