    We got a rare treat (hell, a unique treat--far as we know) of the kind which only Okayplayer is um, equipped to deliver. To wit, our benevolent afro-lord ?uestlove has decided to drop his first "free breakbeat" on his new Ludwig drums. ?uesto sheds a little light on the story behind this fit of generosity below but in short, if you are not a fan of huge drum sounds laid down in ?uesto's signature DJ-ready, deep-pockets style--blame it on D'Angelo:

    i made the decision to go full fledge back to my "roots."
    dec 25th 1979 i got my very first "real" drum set (Blue Vistalites like Bonzo from Zep)
    then i went through a Tama phase ( my parents were like "here")
    but all my professional career i was a Yamaha head. which bent over backwards for me.
    but at the end of the day I'm a "breakbeat"-based drummer and i've never gotten better "grit" than i did with Ludwig.
    actually on D'angelo's "yes we're still waiting" new album i played on a blue & cream vistalite just like when i was a kid. the sound was so raw i was like "i GOTTA go back." ;
