The one drop drum pattern is the backbone of the reggae rhythm. The backbeat is characterized by the dominant snare drum stroke and bass drum kick both sounding on the third beat of every measure in 4/4 time, while beat one is left empty. Said beat is also the convenient theme for your punky-irie Weekend Shots.
