What's this particular old drum machine beat?

The most obvious example I know: Gorillaz - Last Living Souls
, as the intro.
I hear this very beat a lot (it seems to be the Amen break of the preset rhythm world) but I don't know where it comes from. I know presumably it's off an electronic organ or old drum machine; more specific details are desired (like is it the "Samba" beat on the Yamaha XYZwhatever, that kind of detail).
