History of the Most Sampled Drum Beat

This syncopated drum sample is so ingrained in our society that I dare-say it is part of our genetic memory. I’m willing to bet that you will recognize it as soon as you hear it.

The video above delves into the history and origin of that overused sample. Interesting stuff.

    This truly is the Mother of all Samples.

    But very cool little history of that sample. It’s neat to know where it came from!
