For this course Max has blown the cobwebs from a classic 70's kit to teach you his favorite classic drum "breaks" from the late 60' & 70's. These breaks originally featured in songs by 70's artists such as Barry White and The Isley Brothers and were later sampled and re-purposed by well known contemporary artists to form the basis of literally 1000's of great tracks by The Prodigy or Daft Punk all the way to Gangstarr or NAS.
