In collaboration with author and collector Joe Mansfield, beat:repeat NYC highlights 101 vintage drum machines and their impact on popular music over the past 60 years. Since its introduction in 1959, musicians have used drum machines for much more than a steady beat. What began as a simple solution became a doorway to creativity. Explore the foundation of classic tracks like Suicide screaming over a cheap Seeburg to Arthur Baker setting an 808 running beneath Afrika Bambaataa.
