    I know the vocals came from Think About It, but they sound like they were specifically sampled from the Squarepusher song.

    Think is already linked to the Squarepusher song

    By the way, the vocal sample in question is none other that Mr James Brown doing jamesbrownesque noises on Lyn Collins' Think (About It) at 1:37. The beat - and the accompanying vocal sample - is used in numerous drum and bass and jungle songs.

    The first time I heard the Lyn Collins song, I didn't actually recognize the ubiquitous Woo-yeah -sample, but this one. From Right Said Fred's I'm Too Sexy, to add to insult. MTV sure did a good job drilling that one deep into my cerebral cortex.

    Not sure about the 8-bit sound at that stage, but the beat and the high pitch vocal sample sound straight from Come On My Selector . Might not be, but very similar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxEb2FrQUbE 3:12

    I've definitely heard the bit starting from 1:33, possibly from a video game, anyone recognise it?
