Digging for drum breaks and loops is what really got me into record collecting in the first place. I am a producer of weird and semi-listenable music and really found my roots in sampling. This week I’m going to share ten seven inch singles that can be easily found, at least in the United States.
Lists are great ways to share all sorts of similar releases with other collectors, like those that are looking for loops like this one. Share your favorites down below and check out these ten here:
Put Your Hand In The Hand was, I believe, first by Elvis. There are many many different covers of this one out there and many have their own interpretation of the break. Great place to start.
This is an absolute classic break which should be in every collection. It made the top 100, there are a lot of copies of this out there. It’s really not that hard to find decent copies for cheap. Look for it on dollar bin hit compilations too.
Like Scorpio, it’s still not that hard to turn up decent playable copies for under a buck if you’re in the crates enough. Classic heavy island funk with a thick break.
Thick break on this easy to find pop single. It doesn’t look like a winner from a distance, but it is.
Classic Rock Radio makes it’s entrance on the list. I think everyone knows this one.
Probably one of my favorite drum breaks of all time. They’re just so thick and bass heavy. I heard this in a thrift store once and it filled me with power.
The A-Side was a huge hit and this record is really easy to find. The B-Side has a nice healthy break on it.
Nice intro bass and drums on this classic oldies rock/pop hit. Another easy find.
