This digital riddim is so ruff, lovely.. :grin:
I have no clue about the drum machine used though - it sounds like a toy. The sound at the beginning could be easily sampled directly from the youtube video.

A lot of drum machine sample sets can be found over here:

Lean Boot - Richie Davis is hot !

So i fount a nice JAHTARI article about this :

"It showed how you could construct a riddim on a cheap
keyboard. In those days Unity used such "unplugged" methods of recording as actually playing the
electric drums live - they had no facility for looping. You can still hear the drum guide plips in the
Casio keyboard that they used for many of the tracks; in fact sometimes they even accentuated the
plip to make it part of the track."
AMAZIN' , hahah !

Casio , but what model ?
