some of the drum loops i've been using lately have been a lot 'busier' than typical 'classic' d'n'b breaks ..
for example amen has hits on the 1/8th and rolls on the 1/16ths (if you get what i mean) but the break i have got at the moment has a hit on every 1/16th and a lot of these have elements of kick drum in there ..
the overall effect being that when you pitch it up to the region of 170bpm (slowest i really wanna go is 167) what was quite nice funk break sounds really mental and actually sounds more like 200bpm ..
so what ways do you use of giving the break a bit of space and making it sounds slower ..
i've used techniques like lowering velocity on some hits or filtering some bits etc pretty successfully in the past but just curious what else would work ...
