Nearly everyone in the US
(and anywhere else I would imagine) can recognize the signature chemical beat. Prevolent especially in the Chemical Brothers
' later works, it refers to a snare
within a beat (as well as heavy use of hats.) Now everyone can rip their signature style
, as the beat has been decyphered:
1 = light hit
2 = med hit
3 = heavy hit
1234 5678 9...
Add some Bassdrums, lots of open/closed hats and flams on the snares and you have what could easily pass for a chemical brothers' beat.
(Is this piracy?)
