I love old funk breaks ALOT, but I don’t find it very refreshing or creative to work with them anymore. When I first started producing it seemed like the only real physical way to make a dnb beat, hence why everyone used them, but in today’s world, we have so many amazing tools to work with that gives me the inspiration to push my sound and development forward, to be able to create something remotely unique and spend my time producing, not hunting for break samples all day looking for luck. I think the most amazing part about funk breaks is the actual funk, the live feel and different sounding hits. So instead of sampling a break, I’ll try and recreate it, by replicating the hits and pattern. I would normally keep the sampled break at its original tempo, recreate the break (say in Superior Drummer), then after that process it as I would do with an old dnb funk break r.e. pitch it up to 172, chop it up and recreate a new pattern. It’s a long process but a really fun one with tons of learning opportunities 🙂
