From DJ Pogo Presents Block Party Breaks 2 and 1 other release

The Winstons is a 1960s funk and soul music outfit, based in Washington, D.C., who are most notable for recording a track called “Amen, Brother” (a B-side to the single “Color Him Father” recorded in 1969).

“Amen, Brother” is probably the most sampled record of all time. Midway through the track there is a drum solo which has been sampled and used in thousands of hip-hop, pop, drum and bass and jungle tracks. This beat is known as the “Amen break”, after the song.
