    I chopped up the Amen break for the first time and started creating drum patterns, pretty cool getting my head around DnB and half time beats but what other breaks are good for DnB, preferably breaks containing shuffles?

    This break is really good, mainly because I constructed it myself instead of looking at existing breaks, you could do that too. Or steal mine which is awesome.

    Amen, Think, Scotty are pretty classic. Get your hands on some dnb refill packs, Nutone, London Elektricity, Friction/Icicle, Danny Byrd (and loads more producers) have their own and theyre full of nice breaks to play around with!

    start listening to soul, jazz n funk and find ones no one else has used. its really not that hard to find breaks, just listen to lots of music. all breaks are good for chopping
