Music from Spike Lee's 25th Hour

Help me find this music from Spike Lee's 25th Hour. It's from the nightclub scene, specifically when Naturelle (Rosario Dawson) and Mary (Anna Paquin) are hitting the dance floor.

I know that the song uses a sampled bassline from "White Lines (Don't do It)" by Grandmaster Flash, but I can't find the specific remix. Any clues?

Best answer: Do you mean Cavern by Liquid Liquid? I haven't seen the film for a while, but I believe it was in there. That's the source for the sample in the Grandmaster Flash song.

Yes, it is Cavern, scroll down this page to hear a sample. Good luck on finding a copy that isn't at a phenomenal price though; the vinyl and CD of their collected stuff has been out of print since Grand Royal went bust. You can get a 12" of it here, though ...

You might want to search for samples on this site. It found significantly longer clips than what amazon offered.

That's the source for the sample in the Grandmaster Flash song.

Yeah, it's the original. The video is pretty trippy too. I saw it once on MTV, when Moby was showing his favorite videos.

Sounds to me like the mix in the movie was significantly different than that sample from Amazon.

Even out of print it wasn't that hard to track down a couple years ago. It might be tricky since they've once again been repopularized, this time by the DFA label. The late-90s release was on both Grand Royal and Mo'Wax in the UK. There are usually some copies on ebay.

Check out, you might find a copy there. P.S. Check your email.
