Drum and bass is, as the name suggests, largely about getting the drums and basses right! But one of the cardinal sins of d’n’b production is when people don’t do enough variation in their drum parts. In this short video from the course Dance Music Styles 104: Drum and Bass, producer Adam Pollard aka Multiplier explains why this can be a problem, and how to fix it.
By looping the same 2 or 4 bar drum part all the way through a track you can end up with something that starts to get boring.
