Something that keeps coming back to me lately is the realization of how similar break beats are to hard things that fall to the ground. I bet you could go outside and record falling things and piece together the sounds so that each initial impact sound is another emphasis in the rhythmic pattern of an awesome break beat.
It’s like the rhythm bound to the timing of things fallen is just a very natural and pleasing beat to us. Faster and it seems hasty, slower and it seems boring.
I should really investigate that..
