    So, are any of you guys working on tracks with some innovative drum beats? All I hear lately is more and more modulated bass, and the same shitty drum beats. Getting bored to fuck of it to be honest. Where's teh creative drumming at?

    were doing all kinds of stuff atm, 4x4 beats, halftime beats on chillout-tracks - basically we try our best, haha :D

    maybe listen to titanium white and fluidum on our soundcloud ;)

    I can honestly say iv never made a standard kick, snare, kick, snare track lol
    Its usually double kicks and snares with some percs for some fills

    Back to oldschool back to roots...

    to me it's getting more and more polarized: On the other hand I'm longing for those simple and straightforward 2 step beats, on the other hand I want to make more junglistic vibes with mad break action. It's all good.

    Ps make wubba wubba bazz is easier than
    make a proper well Break with variations and
    a good dance vibe in the song..then the bass
    is important 2.

    i have to agree - as much as mainstream d&b beats have been standardised over the last 10 years, i cant get enough of that minimal head nod at the moment. sick.

    Amon tobin is still the grandmaster of all beats.

    Every album he pushes the boundaries further. Take the track posted in this thread (youtube video). The drums are nice, groovy etc. But Tobin made that type of stuff, and then some, 10 years ago.

    I'm tobin drum-aholic.

    infact tobin used the very same drum sample. Anyone remember which track?
