    Default Dancehall samples (Horn, siren, PULL UP!)

    This may be a really strange request, but I know there are some Hip-Hop DJ's who might use these samples and a lot of dancehall (in fact, all of them) DJ's use them.
    I'm looking for samples like
    'Somebody say PULL UP!'
    the standard reggae/dancehall airhorn and siren.
    I'm doing a radio show and I want to fill in the time between me pulling the tune and starting it again with some samples, but I cant find these samples anywhere, if anyone could assist it would be much appreciated!

    you ever listen to uk garage/grime/bass stations? look up toddla t, loefah, redlight etc, its common place. rewinds etc are also quite common. hence the 'pull up!' sample.

    Look into YouTube videos of old reggae, dub, and soundclash sessions. You'll find what you need and rip it. Kahn and Neek do this on the reg for their productions. I gaurentee you'll get a pull up sample from any soundclash.

    Horns and sirens are totally legit when mixing dancehall. Other stuff not so much.

    yeah there's a few samples etc in the heatwave podcasts and stuff but i think they're a bit played out, got a 'would you care to rewind and come again?' david rodigan sample, and a few airhorns etc, i wouldnt ever use them when mixing techno and stuff but if you're on the radio and doing pull ups i think they're acceptable in garage etc, if used sparingly, not dropped all over the place like in dancehall or reggae
