What's the best beat?
    #2593348 - 04/23/04 02:08 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Which songs do you think have the best beats?

A personal favorite is Kurtis Blow - The Breaks. That beat, my friends, is unmistakingly killer :smile:.

what do you exactly mean by beat? percussive pulse of a song?

Man, I could name so many...
The Meters - Feel Like A King
Chemical Brothers - Orange Wedge
Crystal Method - Bad Stone
Propellerheads - Bigger?
Busta Rhymes - Dangerous

    #2593456 - 04/23/04 02:39 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

imo:

UNKLE
Amon Tobin
DJ Shadow
Bill Laswell


the most amazing beat players in the world are Zakir Hussein (Tabla Beat Science) and Danny Carey of TOOL.

though i can't stand Mainscheme Music,
i was really impressed by Little John's work,
Timbaland's work/ Jay Z,
and Eminem's work w/ 50 cent.

i can't wait to see Zakir w/ Ravi Shankar on sunday... :grin:

I could probably name a ton that I love, but I think Mood Swings by Rascalz has stuck with me the longest..even know it's pretty rare I listen to hip hop these days.  Such an awesome, solid drum beat. :headbang: :thumbup:

Shpongle - ...and the day turned to night

it's a 7/7, so they use combos like:

1 2 3 1 2 3 4
1 2 3 1 2 3 4
1 2 3 1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4 1 2 3

1 2 3 4 1 2 3
1 2 3 1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4 5 1 2
1 2 1 2 3 4 5

the beat gets saturated with effects and reverbs and delays and stuff deep into the song its really cool :laugh:

Also the group Bland Bladen has some KILLER beats in the parts where its basically guitar and percussion

Billy Martin of Modeski, Martin and Wood... anything he plays (Shack Man is laden with sick ass beats). Also, Let us not forget The opening beat from Zepplin's first album (1), Good Times Bad Times.

At least thats what I get out of it. :smile:

i like ...

"PUUUh PUUUh TShch! PUUUh PUUUh TShch!"

however, i really like this beat from the song I heard on the radio
"BHhuump BHhuump BHhuump BHhuump "

Oh, and a person favorite is
"da da da dut, dut dut dut da, duda dada da, da da da daAAAH!"

Oh, and my friend does a mean
"GUmp GUmp ta-tCSH bbhhUUU ta-tCSH bbhhUUU "
:tongue2: :tongue2: :tongue2:



Actually, the GREATEST song of all time (Rhythym, beat, vocals, harmony, everything) would have to be "Ghost of the Navigator" by Iron Maiden

if you mean percussion i'd have to say crystal method are the kings of beat ALTHOUGH outkast has some pretty bad ass beats as well
if you mean beat as in coolest rythem of a song there is one song that sticks out to me "Fried My Little Brains" by The Kills I believe, it's catchy as hell, but not mainstream necessarily, it's awesome!
