Hi earthlings !
Actually when you hear jungle/DnB tunes you have a chance on two to hear those famous Amens or Funky Drummer or basic sample-drums from Fruity Loops or Reason and, hell yeah, it's fucking boring.
Here's some new fresh breaks that i've found wondering in my music library (they're all at the begining of the song, so easy to sample .. if you're not owning those song I can share my .rex file ;)).

Blur - Song 2 (powerful Snares)
U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday (you can easily make a "war-drum" effect with it)
Apocalyptica - Fisheye (POWERFUL break)
Children Of Bodom - Trashed, Lost & Strungout (there is guitar riff mixed with the kicks, you can make really cool stuff with it)
 Ok Go - Get Over It (if you're searchin for realistic "claps"sounds ;) )

Ok here's my stuff, if you've got some other ones it's up to you to share them ! :)

nice one Janus !! thanks !!

An artist i loved to sample was Peter Cincotti, lot of instumental sounds to take, and Mulatu Astatke off course an African Funk band from the 70'S with soooo many samples to do...

Thanks for the advice, I'm gonna check this out ! ^^

(I was expecting drum but i never noticed that melodic samples would be nice too x) )
 
 
 
make breaks yourself! out of seperate hits!
layering, compressing, EQ-ing and some pitching is all you need!

offcourse unless it realy has to sound acoustic

Oneshot POWER!

All made breaks could be used as a background layer/filling but as main beat I often don't like it.

By breaks I mean sample existing drums (or guitar riff) to "rex" (cutting each snares, BD, hats, etc into separate pieces) them and then rearrange it...

It's exactly the same manipulation as geting the base drums of your program but with less-artificial drum sounds ;)

ig;
I made many of my DnB tunes using the Snare of the "Fisheye" one and the BassDrum of the "Song 2" one

ok so you'r sampling yourself some oneshots form other tracks.

I prefer to get oneshot straight from a good oneshot library.
I like the "vengeance sound" library for that. (more dance/punchy sounds)

 how do you master these best to the background? by cutting the mid bass specificly or using stereo imagers? i dont like it aswell when its the mainloop.

personally I tend to keep it simple,
I just put them very quite then boost certain frequenties (usually the higher and mid end)sometimes I change the width as well.
A very cool thing to do is cut the layered break into different pieces and pitch it up (no warping so in a way the layered break is gated)by doing that your eventual break will seem to be more rolling, seemingly going faster
generally its just experimenting^^

Well I think the mid-end the best ;)
Indeed on my last "released" song (I mean on Ebel :P -- aka FACEHUGGER ). I first made my beat without using a break layer then I put an Amen on the second drop.
I think the second beat is a hundred times better and it's the high-freq-ed snares that gives it's strength to the beat ;)
I'm lookin' forward to use high pitched snares instead of hatz for my next drum beats, and by the way sidechaining the whole compression so it would sound as a integer thingy.
