About this free drum beat

This groove is inspired by Led Zeppelin’s When The Levee Breaks drum beat. Of course, it’s got my own twist to it, with a big, wide open snare and a linear vibe to it. It was recorded in a massive empty, untreated office so the natural reverb makes the groove sound huge. I also really like how the hi hats give the groove a degree of elasticity.


I’ve called it Your Phatness coz it sounds it’s a big, big groove that you can use for lots of styles. I came up with whilst noodling between lessons. I got inspired, so decided to record it and offer it as one of my free drum beats online. So you can chop it up as you please and have fun with it. This groove is cool because you could use it to write tons of stuff. It’s feels great, so go make some music!


Sometimes a simple groove is all it takes to get creative juices flowing! You never know when you might need a groove to inspire creativity!
