    But I'm having trouble finding the sources of the breaks. Does anyone know where I can find the break from a live recording of James Brown's band covering "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell & the Drells

    Also is the `Pulp fiction break` that wiki mentions, actually the drums from the Alex Reece track (Pulp Fiction), or is it something different. I had trouble understanding what the wiki article was actually saying.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i think pulp fiction is a double snare.

    kick snaresnare kicksnare
    rather than the usual kick snare snarekicksnare


    if that makes any sense.

    i will explain properly if required

    I'm not trying recreate the pattern, but looking for the origin of the breaks used to create the "tramen"
    Thanks for the help/advice.

    Very helpful.
    I was able to get all the samples from these links.
    Samurai, which seems to be the pitched down rides in the tramen, the amen of course and then the alex reece beat which is widely available also.
    The samurai break is really nice and now that I've heard it I can place it in many tracks I've heard.
    Respect

    It's not that hard to find out how a beat goes, get the sound, open a slicer channel (fruity) drag and drop. Sync it for tempo and click the individual hits. It's a great way to study breaks :D
