#99 Block rockin’ beats – The Chemical Brothers

Great track from the Chemical Brothers, although … I realise the brothers were very much a product of the nineties (hip-hop) club scene, and yet I still find myself asking what, if anything, is there about this track that isn’t sampled. The title and lead vocal line is from
‘Gucci Again’ (Schoolly D); the drum patterns are from ‘Them Changes’ (Bernard Purdie) and the bass-line from ‘Coup’ (23 Skidoo). Still, as no-one else seems to be bothered by this I suppose I shouldn’t be either. I guess I was never happy with the idea of DJ’s being portrayed as musicians (counting drummers is bad enough!).

Lyrics

Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats
Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats
Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats

Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats
Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats
Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats
Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats

We are about ready to rock steady
We are about ready to rock steady

Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats

Back on one of those other block rockin’ beats
