These Jungle grooves take any three semi quavers of the beat and loops the pattern repeatedly, stretching across the barline before opening up to restart on the “1” of the 4/4 time. I’d play these all the time, as fills or turnarounds, or to sit on for several bars as if a loop marker has been left on repeat giving a 3 against 4 poly meter or hemiola effect. They’re quite natural patterns and you hear them often in drum and bass. The Paradiddle-diddle, played repeatedly across 8th and 16th subdivisions is king here.
