Here’s another amen post… personally I’ve never really understood people who focus entirely on amen tracks, to the detriment of all other breaks. I mean, it’s a great break, but so are “Do the Do”, “Funky Mule”, “Kool is Back”, “In One Peace”, “Tighten Up”, etc. Still, for those serious amen heads, here’s a nice choppy tune from 95. “It’s Driving Me” combines aforementioned chopped amens with a vocal bit from Bel Biv Devoe’s “Poison” + piano + 808 bass. Nothing too shocking, I actually might even prefer the other side which has some nice time stretched bits… but Tim Reapah suggested I post this one and that kid knows his amens, so here you go.
This EP is the first release on Rinse Out, a sublabel of L Double’s Flex label. Rinse is better known for its jump up releases, like my personal favorite from 1999, Rinse Unlimited EP However there were some nice early jungle EPs on there (as well as plenty on its parent label Flex).
