— The Good Part ('In the Air Tonight' Remix)
Gated reverb as an effect was used on countless drum tracks during the 1980s, to the point that such a sound became a defining characteristic of that decade’s popular music.
Phil Collins used gated reverb extensively in the early to mid-1980s, both in his solo work as well as working with other artists. He first employed it on the Peter Gabriel song “Intruder”. Examples of Collins’s own music include “In the Air Tonight”, “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)”, I Don’t Care Anymore, and the Genesis track “Mama”.
