" As The Drum Beats Go Like This "
There are plenty drum breaks that have been rocked to death....The obvious ones would be, Funky Drummer, It's A New Day, and of course the very classic, Synthetic Substitution break..
At the time when these breaks were very popular- I honestly didn't mind hearing them flipped a million ways...To me that was one of the creative aspects of sampling ; if you chopped it this way, I was going to find another way to freak it that you never thought of type of thing..
Eventually sappy R & B groups started using these same drum breaks, that's when I knew it was time to consider them " off-limits " (HAHA).
