The Amen Collection

0 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

The Amen Break is a seven-second drum loop performed by Gregory Coleman in the 1969 soul track “Amen, Brother,” and it may be the most heard seven seconds of sound known to man. Sampled countless times throughout the following decades, the drum break was the progenitor of entire genres of music (with some help from other iconic breakbeat samples). In this show, we explore the tracks that utilize these samples to their full effect. Prepare to ricochet from smooth grooves to percussive onslaughts and rhythmic paradoxes.

Welcome to the greatest seven seconds of your life.
