The pounding rhythm at the core of Gospel is the foundation of rock and roll music.
If the vocal track is the heart of a song, the rhythm track––the beat––is its body. It is the sonic element that taps into the most primal part of us and makes us want to move. “Four on the Floor” breaks the beat down, and examines the endless experimentation that has taken place in its core, the very bedrock of all music. Charting the progression of the beat from drum and bass to beatbox and beyond––from Little Richard and James Brown to disco and EDM.
Airs November 19 at 10/9c on PBS.
