7 March 2014
American hip hop artist Schoolboy Q has sampled Welsh band Man’s Something Is Happening (1976) on his new track Break Da Bank – tipped to top the US charts this week!

A spokesperson for the band said: "Things like this are a bolt out of the blue. It’s nice after 40 years that the music is still appreciated and that the album the Welsh Connection has been used for this sample. The back catalogue is now widely available on Cherry Red/Esoteric Records. The advances in technology and the reissue programme over the past 8-10 years means Man’s music is more widely available than it has ever been. Hopefully it will help in keeping the legacy of the Man band’s music alive.”
