    The break that practically formed drum & bass/jungle...if you havent heard of it please do yourself a big favour and watch this video The Explanation of The Amen Break. Tip, dont use a raw amen break in your track, high pass, low pass, add effects, the possibilities are endless, plus you can layer them over other breaks and compress them. :)

    The raw break sounds good too IMO. It can be a bit used up tho.

    I use amens all the time, mostly as backbeats to fill the drum pattern out a bit !
