    hey guys, i have been recently trying to find out some really influential breaks on black music from the past and today, one of my favourites is the drums on Kool & The Gang - NT, bit of a classic..

    can anyone reccomend some other foundations worth checking out,

    oh and that 21 questions (bullshit) cover of a very awsome barry white - its only love...

    thanks.

    Just do not hate for the sense of hating be very constructive with anything you disagree with because you may have missed an important ingredient that helped cook your hate. My ingredients are: Peace, Love and Happibeats..... :-)
