Sample help (Disco)

I’m sure I’ve got the original from where the sample comes from but can’t put my finger on it…can anyone help please?

Thanks, Sean

I Was Born This Way by Carl Bean.

Here’s an interesting article I read this week on sampling culture and how modern Shazam type tech is helping to track down uncleared samples in tunes so companies and lawyers can buy the rights and then take the producers to court! If I was an old school sampling producer I’d be worried!

That song is also a tribute to Earth People - Dance

That’s what I was hearing!
It’s very finely cut up though, but still there.

Thank you for putting me out of my misery.

If you wanna go even deeper down the rabbit hole, Moton Records Inc released an edit of the instrumental Carl Bean track with the Earth People sample cutting into the actual track just like Longo, which is fantastic and you don’t hear out often. It wasn’t on youtube until very recently but someone put it up.
