    I really like Netsky's kicks and snares. They are very punchy and I like the way they sound. I've always been more a techno/trance guy and never really layered drums before. But since I want to get into more dnb/liquid funk I have noticed the vast majority of drum samples are simply not punchy enough. So if someone could give me a hand, I'd be very grateful, thanks :)

    This is an example of the style of drums I'm striving for...

    Samplepacks, vengeance, loopmasters etc have all you need, if you want to layer it's pretty easy. Find a sample that has good low, find a sample with good high end, cut shitty freq's, route to a bus -> compress if needed

    Yeah that's cool, I'd also like to add that shaping your transients can aid in tightening your snare sound.

    The Friction & Icicle pack sounds too minimal to me. The K-Tee pack sounds pretty good though. Nice and punchy.

    Parallel compression for your drums could help too.
