80's tracks with DMX drum intro's or breaks?

Anyone know of any classic 80's tracks or rare Boogie tracks that have DMX drums in the intro or the break? preferably on their own?
I've been YT'ing for 3 hours!!!!

I've yet to find any sample CD's or resources that have phat sounding DX/DMX kick and snares.

I know there are a few knowledgeable dudes here hopefully you can help a struggling peasant

you could probably find a few things on the Beastie Boys' 'Licenced To Ill' if you haven't already. also, any of the old RUN-DMC albums.

D-Train used the DMX a lot. A few of the 12" mixes have really long breaks. Ditto for The System.

But really, Goldbaby is good, and actually, Ableton Live 8 has drum rack presets with multi sampled DMX samples. They sound good after you take off all the crappy default processing.

Just for kicks (actually, snares).

Almost every track on Fatback Band "Is This The Future?" has dry DMX sounds on their own. Most of the sounds in the machine are at the start of each song by themself. I keep this record close by.

Not a lot of sample-able breaks, but this is my favorite DMX programming (by Anton Fier).

OB-Xa I think? The story is that David Frank borrowed money from his Dad and bought Oberheim's System, which was the DMX, OB-Xa, and DSX sequencer. He met Mic Murphy, and most of their early tracks were written with this equipment. However, if you check out his blog at davidfrankmusic.com, he talks about using a minimoog model D and other analog equipment, so no telling, really. You could ask him, he's actually pretty responsive LOL. I've been trying to recreate that bass using U-He's Diva for a while, with some mild success.
