Rock into your breaktime with one of the most sampled drum beats of all time.
"When The Levee Breaks", from Led Zeppelin’s untitled fourth album from 1971, showcases drummer John Bonham’s big powerful sound. The Ludwig drums were recorded in a stairwell of Headley Grange mansion with the natural reverb mixed with an echo delay that seems to add extra notes to the groove.
Bonham’s naturally funky feel on the introduction to this blues/rock song, which originated in 1929, attracted Hip-Hop producers to remix it in the 80s. It become one of the most popular drum samples of all time with Beastie Boys, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Bjork and Beyonce all using this drum ‘break’ in their songs.
