That remake by Stationary is convincing, well done.
Yep, seems pretty obvious this is the correct source. But do you think they were trying to interpolate Floyd or 23 Skidoo using the Crusaders sample?
Ok, here's my attempt at using "The Well's Gone Dry" to make the "Block Rockin' Beats" bassline:http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xhy34e_bassline-reconstruction-the-chemical-brothers-block-rockin-beats-the-crusaders-the-well-s-gone-dry_music
My theory was that The Chemical Brothers rearranged the bass parts from "The Well's Gone Dry" to make the bassline for "Block Rockin' Beats". Could be wrong, though.
I've heard several theories on this one. That it's an interpolation of Pink Floyd's "Let There Be More Light" or 23 Skidoo's "Coup". I wouldn't put it past them to reuse a sample the original Dust Brothers used.
If this is indeed the bassline sample (which I'm not 100% convinced it is) shouldn't the 23 Skidoo one be removed? It is tenuous at the best anyway.
