Ah well, no Candyman effect but you never know until you try.... not a lot to this. Anyone know where the piano sample was from originally - I'm not so sure if it was Congress' "40 Miles", but that's where I remember hearing it first. Answers in the comments if you know please !

  1. Whistle posse bloooowwwww!!

    Excellent tune. I've always thought BOB could do with a hardcore remix. Think you're right about Congress too, think it came out in 1990/91 and that must make it a contender for the original

  2. As someone mentioned on GYBO the piano sample is "I Can't Take The Power" - I remember hearing it at my local youth club (!) so it must've been '90 or '91.

    I think he samples Congress on the first track on that Slipmatt compilation (SMD 1a) - it's very similar.

  5. I'm pretty sure the piano sample is I Can't Take The Power by Off-Shore.

  6. The original piano sampled by off-shore comes from Better Days by Jimi Polo.
