Abloh named the collection and its film Amen Break – a perfect metaphoric illustration of how an original drum break recorded by The Winstons, a funk and soul group, in 1969, became the most-sampled drum break ever. “I called the collection that, because I think it’s so profound: this idea that something can be iterated on by so many artists in so many songs, to the point where it melts away—they weren’t compensated for it, by the way. And people don’t know that the drum pattern in their favorite song was from a very specific soul song—and it’s a sampler that makes it possible.”
