"In 1980 American rocker Billy Squier released a song called The Big Beat. The track opens with an immediately iconic drum riff as Billy proclaims, 'I got the big beat! I hear the sound!' Over the last 40 years, the drum hook has been sampled on almost 300 songs including Jay Z's 99 Problems, Dizzee Rascal's Fix Up Look Sharp and The Prodigy's Spitfire.
To honour the biggest beat going, we've released our new limited-edition DDH DIPA, Big Beat, which features bold peach and melon hits as huge as the iconic drum riff itself. And because big beats are the best… we put together a playlist of 30 songs containing the big beat, consider it some recommended listening when drinking our freshest and finest.
