The Motorik Beat

Since I ‘ve mentioned Can and the beats of Kraut rock it is only natural to make a post about the motorik beat.

Kraut rock is all about atmosphere contradicting with obsessive simplistic yet bombastic drum patterns. The constant 8th note beat with the closed h/h and the bass drum hitting hard together was pattented during the Kraut rock era by the likes of Neu!, Kraftwerk and of course Can.
