Old skool funk acoustic kit. My first choice for that sound these days is Groove Bias (http://www.impactsoundworks.com/products/groove-bias-vintage-drum-sounds), which is part of a great sale (http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?p=622875#622875) next weekend. Check out virt's demo (http://www.impactsoundworks.com/audio/demos/Groove_Bias_-_Slap_Them_Skins.mp3). Sounds similar to the vibe you're looking for, and with the right eq/compression your could really nail the sound of the clip you posted. The full version is only $79-$89, but check their site to find the free mini version which may work for you too.

And if that doesn't work, you could just sample the kick and snare from the audio :) Go find a higher quality version of the song (it's probably only pennies on Amazon or something) and bam! you're in business.

Next time give your topic a more useful title than "help me" - call it what you're asking for (like "Where to find this kick and snare").

Here's the cheapass way to do it: go to http://www.breakbeat-paradise.com/bb_samples.php and download the samples.

Then, use Audacity ( http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ ) to cut out the separate snare and kick sounds. Save them as separate samples, and you're done. You'll have to live with the quality of the mp3 files, but process them properly and you most likely won't notice much.

On the other hand Groove Bias is absolutely awesome and that kind of cash for samples is pretty low compared to most other stuff.

Alternatively, get cheaper sample-packs like http://www.loopmasters.com/product/details/60/Hip_Hop_And_RnB_Breaks or http://www.loopmasters.com/product/details/30/Urban_Soul or http://www.loopmasters.com/product/details/278/Akai_Soul_and_R&B (you might have to search a bit until you find something useful, though - these were the results for the "Soul" category). They'll have better quality sounds, even though you'll probably still have to cut some sounds from loops. But that's part of the charm.

but check their site to find the free mini version which may work for you too.Hmm...maybe you didn't catch this part Crazy mind. There is a mini FREE version of Groove Bias that is great.

You can take the kick/snare samples that GB comes with and use them directly in your project, in any sample player, or use the FREE Kontakt Player to load up the full free kit. I just tested GB Mini in Kontakt player and it sounds great (there may be demo limitations on using GB in Kontakt Player, but I haven't run into any yet). You're not going to find legally free samples much better than these :)

EDIT: There is a 30 minute limit on using GB in Kontakt Player and you can't save. Nevertheless, you can use the raw sample files that GB comes with however you want.
