What a contrast indeed from Marceys! Couldn't resist slamming a beat to this.

It's pretty obvious what to play to this kind of thing. For this track, I did the rarest of things: used my Pearl 13x3 brass piccolo snare drum instead of my more usual-sized snares. This drum is all bark and no bite - perfect for a dance track like this.

Hard track to do well - need to be tight on the click (which I'm not but it's close enough for jazz). Went for very straight ahead drums with minimal fills. This sort of music usually has multiple drum patterns stacked on so I've (hopefully) left space for the drum programmers/electric kit players out there to add too. This is a track that begs for multiple drummers/patterns.

Mix-wise, fed the kit to a very aggressive multi-band compressor to fatten the sound.

I hope it works out. Great track!

MarceysMarceys There's the beat! Great again Martin and you are very quick! I just uploaded it :) Your right about this kind of tracks, it is usually covered with sequencing rhythtms and sounds! I played it realtime :) only with effects on the sound ofcourse! Now it needs a grooving dance-bass! 😎 The piccolo sounds great!

Thanks, Marc. I should use the snare more often! I've tried to establish the 'basic beat' and hope others will add to it to give it the real techno punch it deserves.

The pattern should be tight enough to go with sequenced drums. Fingers crossed!

Thanks, Tof. I was already doing some loops when this cropped up, so downloaded and off I went!
