OK so I love the sound of drum breaks in old school hip hop, but I suck at using drum breaks. I can recognize drum breaks other people use, but sometimes I can't exactly understand what they did to it. What really confuses me the most, is when people chop out each individual drum and make their own pattern, when I do that it just sounds weak. The hi hats and the kick are the worst. I understand how to find tempo and loop it and chop it into sections and rearrange it that way, and that usually sounds better but it still sounds off sometimes with some breaks. And I would imagine layering would probably fix a lot of my problems, and I do understand layering and how to make it sound somewhat right in trap, but my layering in hip hop is bogus. It sounds so different.
