how is this Jungle/Hardcore effect done?

what's happening to the breakbeat at 0:57 ? I hear this a lot in this era of music. Is it a delay? how did they do it?

It sound like pitch shifting without changing the tempo.

It's timestretched, probably a couple of times. This was usually done in the Akai, but it doesn't sound like Akai here. Maybe Roland? Either a ton of work/ time on the sampler, or a few happy accidents :)

Ha, I know the answer !
Here is how the story goes:
This drum effect appeared for the first time in the jungle scene by Rufige kru - Terminator.
This track was a massive hit ( and still is) and most jungle artists tried to replicate this effect.
It was later known that Goldie, the mastermind behind this effect, used a pitch shifter on an Eventide H3000 to process the drum breaks.
Other artists (like 4 hero) without knowing goldie's best kept secret, experimented with timestretch found on samplers to reproduce a similar but different effect.
This back2basics track sounds like timestretch has been used.

20 years ago I had success replicating the terminator drum effect using a pitch shifter from a cheapo Peavey UltraverbII , and I thought that was what Goldie was using , but later rumours surfaced that he had used an H3000.

Here are the examples:

PITCH SHIFTER - Rufige Kru - Terminator



TIMESTRETCH - 4 Hero - Journey from the light
It is all about sharing...

A H3000, cool! There's nothing that box can't do. Eventide Band Delays plugin gets gets you almost all of the really cool pitch-filter-delay-infinite modulation options that box has.
