Just idea notes. Means nothing to most.
3 bars instead of 4.
Build up, explode on 2 early...surprise it 2 bars early.
Regular Piano and Strings
Use a vocal instead of a crash on a hit into something new.
Side chain white noisy pad with kick. Filter up and down.
Use a nice funky deep jazz bassy sound, solo that fucker.
Explode and then do sweep down, instead of always up.
End of a bar, uses nice key sound and roll down on the last part of bar 4 only, or 8.
Make a track with hard warm tech house bass same time as kick. Hand drums cut up. The off will be another drum SWING!
Chop vocals up during a build up 1/4 maybe nice.
Try some different kicks besides electronic. Do a sample slicing track from hand drums, and tones and delays.
Harmonica is nice too.
Jazz Style - 6 bars, 7 bars...or some shit like that....switching.
Crazy idea. Bring the frequencies up on the track...and make a white noise at a super high frequency, no reverb, then slam back into the track.
Dont just filter a kick to sound low. Cut its release with either a compressor or something...make it really thin too. Maybe Q on an EQ.
Also, when filtering, try a band pass with a high Q.
Sorry im not so useful today.
