Of course. I know that feeling. 90% of the time I dig for **** I know nobody's gonna have used before, but I feel like I should still have knowledge of well known soul and funk artists so if I buy a Quincy Jones or something album I already know it's been sampled several times before by pros and when I try and see how I can flip it I can't put the same energy in.
As for drums, I almost never sample entire patterns because I just can't figure out how to get them to loop right . I sample individual hits from "drum crazy breaks" for example and layer them with hits from other records to make them unrecognizable.
I think that's also why I can't figure out if the break Kno used is the one I think it is. Because if it is.... I can't believe how he freaked it..
