I’ll Give You a Break

posted by on October 20 at 16:37 PM

Out of generosity and a selfish desire to hear certain awesome breakbeats used in tracks, I’m going to periodically spotlight sample fodder for producers to incorporate in their music. As far as I know, the breaks I’m recommending haven’t been used before—or if they have, they’ve been mutated so much as to be unrecognizable.

The first break I want to suggest is the one that opens “Feel Too Good” by the Move, a British psych-pop/glam-rock band of great distinction who are totally deserving of thorough investigation. You can find “Feel Too Good” on 1970’s Looking On or volume 2 of the Boogie Nights soundtrack (no, really). Lord have mercy, this is a FAT bump (maybe as fat as Billy Squier’s “Big Beat”), denuded of all accompaniment and ripe for the plucking. Somebody, please, go crazy with this.

I agree 100%, if mostly for the fact that Roy Wood deserve to make lots and lots of money.
