Reply To: Q/A with State of Mind..
Ha. Um im not totally sure i follow that last part of your question but here goes. I don’t think there are any rules. The thing about music is rules are literally there to be broken. Think about it. There are tunes where the kick/bass hit on the same groove (take for example that tune Disco Dodo) and its cool. Then the classic tech step pattern usually works around the bass. I guess be aware that some patterns of kick/snare feel faster than others. Generally faster feeling grooves will suit faster baselines, but again its not set in stone. If you think its cool then its cool.
