Sleigh Bells – Rainmaker

Duran Duran – Come Undone, EMF – Unbelievable, Eric B. & Rakim – Paid in Full (and follow-up I Know You Got Soul), Milli Vanilli – Girl You Know It’s True, PM Dawn – Set Adrift On Memory Bliss, Snap! – Ooops Up, Soul II Soul – Keep On Movin’ (and follow-up Back To Life) and many, many more all have one thing in common, except for being worldwide hits: they all sample the legendary drum break (after [3’30]) from The Soul Searchers’ Ashley’s Roadclip (1974).

Now, we can add one more song to that impressive list, and honestly, I didn’t see it coming. New York duo Sleigh Bells, that used to do noise-pop, put it at the heart of their new single Rainmaker. It makes the song instantly recognizable and likeable. Rainmaker is taken from the band’s upcoming mini-album Kid Kruschev, which will be out 10 November.
