hmmm do you mean breaks?

breaks are drum grooves sampled from old records and sped up / processed for dnb.... the most common is the "Amen" break, which is sampled from a tune called "Amen Brother" by The Winstons (1969), other popular ones are the "Think" break from Lyn Collins "Think About It" (1970's i believe), the "Hotpants" break, the "funky drummer" etc etc.

you can listen to some of the more popular breaks on this website, along with an example of which dnb tune they have been used in :: http://www.junglebreaks.btinternet.co.uk/index2.html
