Painting with drums

Spending a lot of effort on coming up with drum parts that tell a story, and it can do some duff stuff 4 yr recs. like starting with just a pumping kick and building on that or having extra hi-hat hits for 2nd verse or leaning on the overheads or room mics for the chorus can give yr drum parts the character and life that they need. With a current track dropped the drums out for just a couple bars and now it's like a totally different magic. It gave the mix all the personality it was missing.
