David Nerattini picks the best drum breaks from the time-signature conscious world of prog rock and finds King Crimson, Gong and 10cc.

Rome’s crate authority David Nerattini explores the world of prog rock, and discovers that while many bands might have been lost in a fantastical world of crystals and quests, they were also pretty handy when it came to pounding out a rock groove. Cue tracks from Todd Rundgren, Yes, Gentle Giant and many more, several of which have been turned into beats for tracks by Busta Rhymes, Jaylib, Beastie Boys and Kanye West.
