I've been listening to a lot of drum n bass at the moment, I'm not too keen on some of the more underground stuff, but I really like the mainstream stuff like from UKF, liquicity and DJ Fresh. I'm pretty good at making four the floor drum beats, but when it comes to making a drum n bass beats it just sounds stiff and obviously sampled. Each snare hit sounds to similar, and the loop just doesn't flow. I also can't get the hi hat work to sound good. I could just use loops but I want to learn how to make them my self.
