    Sounds like a generic 2step break to me.

    Just mess around with ghost snares and adjusting the velocity of percussion hits.

    So 2step formula and then trial and error till i get it right? Sigh...

    Anyone else got something that will speed things along possibly?

    Not sure what you're confused about buddy, it's just got lots of kicks and shuffles. Stick it in your daw and flex to say half time and work the pattern out that way

    Email Spor maybe? Sure they used specific samples so even if you did everything else like they did it, it'd sound a bit different. Probably why you shouldn't try to do an exact 1:1 recreation, plus I doubt he'll tell you exactly he did to get it xD.

    Well i wanted to do an exact recreaction just for learning because i want to make my own awesome breakbeats but then i was going change it a bit so its not plagiarism but i guess making breakbeats like that just comes from experience and i gotta start from the bottom (y)
