Looking for edm drum patterns

Hey guys, i'm looking for edm drumpatterns. I know i can listen to edm. But i was curious if there are any books/websites with drum patterns in electronic/edm pattern style?

What do you guys do to practice (edm) drum patterns? Just listen to songs, and try to do it yourself?

You could always put the song with a pattern you like in an audio track then try to mimic it in a separate track/tracks until you get something you like then make variations on that pattern.

Go to Amazon or your local book store and gets some books on drumming and learn the relationship between hi-hats, kick, and snares; they work together the same way no matter the genre. I'd recommend the Breakbeat Bible for starters but that may not be relevant depending on the style/genre of music you're making. If I want to steal a complicated break I'll sample it, break it down into 1/4 note or 1/8 not slices, then notate it and create a facsimile or beat inspired by my notation.

I make my own drum patterns. It's really easy when you know what works and what doesn't.

Sound design is the hard part.

I found programming drum patterns in the piano roll of a DAW quite tedious. Then I bought a second hand Electribe ER-1. Makes programming drum patterns so much faster and fun and I can just send and record the midi to my DAW. Probably the best 90 Euro's I ever spent on my studio.

Yes, I find programming drum patterns easier on grooveboxes, as well. Better still, imo, is a tracker. Try something like Renoise

I found this useful for that: Amazon.com: Drum Programming: A Complete Guide to Program and Think Like a Drummer eBook: Ray F. Badness: Kindle Store

Ray Badness' book is a good one. You should also check out this SOS tutorial series (and make sure to grab the PDF that goes with it!): Effective Drum Programming, Part 1

Depends on genre really.

For me, I stick to a pretty traditional House pattern, 4 on the floor kick, with a snare/clap on the 2 and 4, and an off beat hat. But that's the music I do.

Outside of that is where I get creative. Frequently I'll make a 3 bar, yes 3 bar closed hat pattern and then play with a delay until it's grooving right. The delay being just right so the wet/dry are playing off one another. The 3 bar pattern creates something called metric dissonance. If everything is either 1, 2, or 4 bar patterns, you've pretty much heard everything after 4 bars. Using a 3 bar hat pattern, then maybe a 2.5 bar rimshot pattern, so everything is repeating itself at different intervals to create interest. Then get some different delays going like I said til things sound groovy. It usually is just a lot of messing around until it sounds good. I literally sometimes just punch in notes randomly, or play the pattern in by hand utilizing my poor timing which sometimes works well.

I use lots of weird, loud, odd ball percussive sounds with a ton of verb. Just out of nowhere have a sound like a stick hitting a plastic tube, or glass breaking. I love that ****.
