    spy in the cab, look dude, it's not that serious where you need to call names. You're just showing arrogance. Thank you for pointing out the other discussion, though. I now realize this "submission to Who Sampled" stuff is something you place WAY too much importance on (almost 800 submissions?) Perhaps you are right, and I just can't hear it. Maybe one day, when I'm not making my own music, I might actually load up these two songs in my DAW and compare and contrast. Until then, I'll continue engaging in more interesting pursuits. You "win", you "owned" me, lol. Feel better? Have fun with this site, though!

    Horn stab whatever, it's the same kind of use. Besides, english isn't my first language.
    The fact is, you were wrong two times, and i largely owned you the first time (go back to Kool is back sampled by Yes and you'll read you saying exactly the same thing for two different samples). There were no discussion about it, there were you, saying something idiot, and me prooving you can't use your ears. Period petit rigolo.

    Our discussion, as I remember, also included the drums. Don't know why that earlier discussion isn't still on this page. Whatever. I just posted that THE DRUMS were not from Kool is Back. I know the HORN STAB (not an "orchestra hit") IS from there already. The site has emailed me back clarifying the matter, so I'm good. My ears at least can tell the difference between a horn section and a full orchestra, so perhaps now you should follow your own advice! Out.

    I think you might consider listening the song before repeating what you read in a book or worse on the internet (i think i already told you that on some other comment about the same thing and the same artist).

    If you listen the tune, then you'll notice that the sample i mention is not a drum sample, but an orchit (orchestral hit) sample.

    You're making the mistake twice. You might consider change your point of vue now.
    As i said earlier, use your ears.

    I mentioned this before, but "Kool Is Back" (the drums) were NOT SAMPLED for "Beat Box" What was actually sampled was a drum track from the multitracks from the Yes 90125 sessions. Engineer Gary Langan used J.J. Jeczalik's Fairlight sampler to create the drum track you hear on "Beat Box" Proof here: bit.ly/1c0VzvP
