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
@kreegah: I also directly noticed the Lyn Collins sample :-DPlease go ahead and submit this :-)
"Wanna Hld Yr Handheld" ^^
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.
YEEEEEEEEEEES!!!! THAT'S WHAT IT IS!!! Oh my god, that's one of my favourite videos ever, I knew I knew it! Thank you, that was killing me!
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?
