Breakbeats are such a curious thing of the era, and I'm still amazed that fast drumming (in some form) got into the mainstream.

Also, for a sample especially, the sax riff meshes really well. Playing just the beginning of it a few times before letting it run is just kind of the phrasing you might hear from a human player.
