    Ok well any of you that have ever heard one of my tunes will recognise me as a dubstepper more than a DNB'er..

    ive been trying DNB out lately for a nice change (enjoying it) but one thing that i feel i cant get is my drum sounds..

    I'm familiar with processing hits which I have done but basically im finding DNB beats are alot more difficult than dubstep beats! anyway, here is a secret link to a beat I have made.

    Forgive the bassline, that is not going to be in there I just threw it in there to make it a better example.

    any advice to 'phatten' this up will be massively appreciated.

    percussion sounds alright to me, mixdown is what u need to focus on, bass is taking over, tweek the mixdown so the percussion is in your face and the bass is bouncing along with it rather than over it, a bit diffrent to dubstep where the bass is the main focus, the bass and percussion need to pump together

    also use the right section, new talent :p

    take what you have there, stick the highest quality think break you can find on there and id say youre good to go. also, change the bassline to this
