Warp Records in association with Outer Rhythm.

The Real Designers Republic...The Dr. McCoy!

Both these tunes sample from Newcleus' 'Jam On It', Aftermath uses the female sweepy vocal off it, and 'Im For Real' uses the arpeggio'd bleepy loop.

Intro from I'm For Real samples Vicious Pink - Cccan't You See...

"I'm for Real" sample is actually saying "I'm a real" and is taken from Robert Owens singing on Frankie Knuckles Presents Satoshi Tomiie - "Tears".

"there's something going round inside my head" sample taken from Cuba Gooding - "Happiness is Just Around the Bend"

    Does anyone know where the percussive loop used on "I'm For Real" was sampled from? Photek also uses it on his remix of "The Rain". I was convinced it was a Steinski track, but I can't find a match.

      The early copies of this came out in the Warp generic sleeves with a banner sticker, as the earlier releases on the label LFO, Tricky Disco etc...same catalogue number as listing

        Vicious Pink's 80s hit "Ccan't You See" sampled in "I'm For Real" , as well as Nightmare on Wax's "A Case of Funk".

          ... 'Down, down, down' female vox on Aftermath: Sampled from the 84' electro classic by Newcleus- 'Jam On It' along with various other parts of the track on both Aftermath and I'm for real. Warp had such a stake in the bleep game at this stage that 'I'm For Real' was absolutely huge; those bleeps lifted entirely from Newcleus! Great sampling & 2 great tracks non the less.

              ...Has to be an error in the notes here... "I'm for Real" sample is actually saying "I'm a real" and is taken from Jamie Principle singing on Frankie Knuckles Presents Satoshi Tomiie - "Tears".

              Unless I am badly mistaken the vocalist on 'Tears' was Robert Owens, not Jamie Principle..

                  "There's something going round inside my head...I think it's something I feel...It's something unreaeaeeaeeaeeaaaal" (sampled from Cuba Gooding, the actor's father). Lots of bass on this one.
