Songs with unusual tuplets in the drumming...

Am on the hunt for songs with unusual tuplets in the drumming...
The more of these in each song, the more appropriate the song, for my intents and purposes!
There are plenty of songs with, say, 8th/16th note triplets or sextuplets... but what about 32nd note septuplets? 16th nonuplets? 8th note quintuplets?
Your recommendations for songs with unusual tuplets, be they in simple, compound or odd time, please!
Genre isn't important, just want some unusual tuplets. Broken or unbroken doesn't matter. The more in the song, the better!
Thanks.

Would you consider solo material?

If so, you should definitely explore this, this, and this. Rhythms don't get more advanced than in those collections!

Happy tupleting!
Am really more interested in songs, but I find your publications intriguing, particularly as a drummer/tutor with his own teaching program.
I'll pick up a copy of your work and get tupleting! Cheers.

A rather bold claim: "Rhythms don't get more advanced than in those collections!"
You've certainly piqued my interest, good sir!

Start listening to Frank Zappa’s music.

Hi, I have just the thing! I had a homework assignment from Ari Hoenig recently to compile a playlist of tunes with quintuplets and septuplets and here's everything I could find - hope you enjoy!

I later heard of a playlist on Spotify for quintuplets which is a bit less jazz based and has loads of great stuff, so it's also worth searching for that if you use Spotify.

Virgil Donati has a back catalogue of music you might like. Planet X was another project he was involved in.

Thanks, I hope you decide to explore them. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Please let me know if you decide to get yourself a copy of any of them. I’d love to discuss it with you.
