On that theme, it was only when I managed to get a download of all the Ultimate Breaks & Beats records.

I was lucky to pick up the first 25 at cost in the early 90's and was surprised when I heard one had Lyn Collins - Think followed by The Galactic Force Band - Space Dust consecutively on one side.

I'm sure you know Think, but listen to Space Dust and you'll see why

Listening to the 1995 Chemical Brothers Essential Mix reminded me of this 80s cut 'n' paster:

      D.J. Battery Brain - 8 Volt Mix

Quite a 'chart' selection of play-ins in this - the snippets of Push It and Crush On You probably leap out the most.

In that mix, this then leads into 33% God by the Beastie BoysDust Brothers. Though full of samples, I wouldn't put this in the category of cut & paste because (like King Of The Beats) it's more intricately produced and layered than your average DJ record, arguably making it a tune with an identity in its own right.

But both tracks are among the finest examples of the art and in my personal top ten:

      The Dust Brothers - 33% God

      Mantronix - King Of The Beats
