I didn’t really have a plan as to how I wanted my beat to sound or where I was going. I basically just played around with different placements until I found something that worked. I knew I wanted to incorporate syncopation, so I played around with a lot of different off beats, and I was satisfied with the product. I have a difficult time not over creating my beats and just sticking with the one I liked. When I found one I wanted to keep, it felt as though there was something missing. When I added a bit of swing, I felt like it all came together. In terms of genre, I’m not sure what exact genre my bit fits in with, but it definitely has a drive and groove, so it could be appropriate for jazz. I also imagined it fitting well with techno-pop songs, such as “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars.
