Six seconds that changed music

At university this semester one of the topics we learnt about was remix culture. We looked at various examples of works that had been remixed and formed into something new, from ‘Edward vs Buffy’, to the works of Banksy. The interesting thing we learnt about though was the ‘Amen break’, never heard of it? Don’t worry neither had I. The ‘Amen break’ is a six second break beat and is the most used piece of sound ever, to show you common this beat is I’ve created a list of the 5 songs most well know songs that feature the ‘Amen break’.
