The latest Captain Pikant video takes a look at the infamous Amen Break – sampled from The Winstons‘ 1969 track Amen, Brother.

The video starts with the original, then demonstrates how to program the break from scratch, and then sample and chop it.

“Much has been said about the history of the Amen Break, but in this episode we take a look at the drum pattern behind the legendary breakbeat, how it works, its little details and what makes it special.”
