EP 39 - Exploring The Funky Drummer Breakbeat with Dylan Wissing

This James Brown song from 1969 made a very small splash at first, until it's beat was re-discovered in the 80's and changed the world of music forever. We take a deep dive learning everything about Clyde Stubblefield's Funky Drummer beat including how and where it was recorded, the gear he used, the impact on music, and Clyde's legacy.

Dylan Wissing has created sample replacements for artists such as Kanye West, Eminem, TI, John Legend and many more. Find out how he "sample replay's" drum beats like Funky Drummer for mega artists so they can legally get the sound of classic breakbeats.
