    Hello so I have two question
    do you have some tips to make reece variation because when I make a track the pattern is quickly the same I'm trying but it's never very good
    And I try to make some little weird sound to place over or between to reece but it never sounds good
    thank you (sorry for my english ;) )

    If you have any clips of your work then it would be easier to help! Variation in general is hard but id try and vary different elements such as adding drum fills toms kick rolls they all work and a lot of tracks these days have those snare triplets, so varying the bass is one thing i mean changing notes adding different bass sounds in work, my best tracks were made when i was making the track from bar to bar and not making 2 bar drum loops then adding a 2 bar bass loop etc... my previous variation consisted of different stab rythems and transition work which then adds the needed interest. may not be of help but could give you an idea!

    this old mefjus emperor tune is a great example at referencing variation, that bit at 1:03, a rising sidechained synth and some snare rolls, it can be as simple as that sometimes
