I have JJ Jeczaliks "art of sampling" cd, and the sample I want is not included. It's that "dum" human voice bass sound that came from the Yes song "Leave it" that featured on "close to the edit" I've seen it featured on people's fairlight demos on youtube but I'm having no luck finding the actual sample. Anyone have it?

Is there not a remix of the Yes tune then where the sound can be found, or did Art of Noise borrow the original tapes?

Art of noise was basically Trevor Horn and JJ Jeczalik. Trevor was obviously the in-demand producer and JJ the programmer of his fairlight. They were working on the Yes 90215 album and playing with some Alan White drum samples decided to form Art of Noise and release their work. Art of noise used samples they already had from Trevor's producing, Malcolm McLaren, Frankie goes to Hollywood, yes, etc. Someone in a fairlight refurbish vid had the exact sample on a disc, I'm wondering if they are out in the wild as they are not on JJ's released sample disc.

I totally forgot about Horns involvement with Yes, now it makes sense!

Didn't he do an album with them playing bass? Tormato, I think?

You say, "Tormato"... :wink:

Been on a heavy ZTT kick recently (Frankie, AON, and Propaganda are on 'heavy rotation'), reliving that part of my musical upbringing as well as just digging the production style.

After reading this thread, I went searching for an AON Peter Gunn video clip (that 'Dun' sample, again). It's not usually a track I really dig (I hate the stupid guitar lick), but I found a really cool live version I thought worth posting. It's from Channel 4's 'The Tube', which is something that might mean a lot to a few of us on this forum :tu:

Seems to me that the Fairlight is playing the main parts and they are singing/whistling over the top :shrug:

I might be wrong.

Yeah, looks like they´re adding something to it.
Art of Noise ruled. My world changed when Close (to the edit) entered the charts and I ran out and bought the album the next day. Where´s the pioneering in todays music! :(

I did the exact same thing with this sample CD. Bought it for a very often used Horn sample, not on there :x

Ended up finding it isolated on 'Owner of a Lonely Heart'... doh. From 'Kool is Back' by Funk Inc!

Oh yes. Funnily enough I went through a The Tube vortex a couple of weeks ago. Never been a show like it before or since, imo. And of course, they "found" Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

Those couple of years were just glorious in the ZTT world.

That “dum” sound was one of the ones that first got me excited about someday owning my own sampler (and bought my Emax in 1987).

Does anyone know the story behind that sample? Who’s voice is it? Any processing? What was the context of its original creation?
