Please help identifying a sample

I need help tracking down a song. It starts of with a guy saying "Greetings to all record enthusiasts!" and then goes into a beat with bass.

Hints/better description:
-I think the track is an instrumental. It's probably a DJ track, and more than likely one of the more popular ones (Shadow, Fatboy Slim, Mix Master Mike, Cut Chemist, etc)
- The dude issuing the greeting sounds like some square from the fifties.
-It was probably from the early 2000 (2002 or before), but there's also a chance that it was in the late 90s.
- I think the G is scratched. So it sort of comes out "rabblerabblerabble-g-g-guh-REEtings to all REH-cord en-THUUU-siasts."

I'm sorry, I know this isn't much to go on, but that's all I know about it and I REALLY need your help finding it. Does anybody know what the hank I'm talking about?

Please help correcting my grammar...ugh.

That should read "indetify" or "by identifying". Your pick.

...still help, though.

Is it "Welcome, Haere Mai" by Dub Asylum?

I tried this one years ago on another thread, but it never got solved. Maybe some new ilxors might know the flute/string sample that starts at 00:39.
