Here goes nothing! Over the past year, I've been incorporating breakbeats into my music. Breakbeats are a drum pattern originating from the rhythmic breaks in many old funk and soul songs. Since the late '80s and '90s, these breaks have been sampled and used in new tracks, giving them a distinct and recognizable sound.
Despite their unique appeal, breakbeats can be quite challenging to find. Fortunately, I stumbled upon an incredible pack of breakbeats last year and have used them in my productions ever since.
Inspired by their scarcity, I decided to try my hand at creating my own breakbeats. Though I've studied basic percussion and can play the drums, breakbeats are a new territory for me. Nevertheless, I'm excited about the challenge and the rewarding learning experience it promises.
I'm now putting together a sample pack full of my own breakbeats. It’ll be a tough journey, but one worthwhile. You can listen to a sample of what I've been working on above!
