"Say Kids, What Time Is It?" by Coldcut was one of the earliest recordings to be built entirely around samples. It came out in 1987, before M|A|R|R|S, S'Express and Bomb the Bass made their sample-built hit recordings. It was Coldcut's debut single, before they hit big with tracks like "Doctorin' the House". It still remains a classic sample recording.
