Open Drum Breaks

What UP!
Open Drums Breaks is a growing list of 12" vinyl with an open drum break, a la Skull Snaps/ Apache. I started this list so I could better recognize covers in the wild and omitted any breaks a knew or had (I am now adding them).

My intention here is a visual database of record digger loopable breakbeat drums breaks, rather than a comprehensive list (ie no 90's plus albums, CD as a primary format, etc.) of all drum sounds. Vague, I know.

Message me to add a confirmed open drum break to the list! Lemme know about any errors/duplicates/edits as well.

Thanks & Keep Diggin!
