So I've been messing around with some mixing software and my drum beats suck. Any tips for making good dance beats?

Simple beat, simple bassline, and there you have a hit.

No. It needs lyrics too.

I don't want no green eggs and ham
Sam I am
Like Will Smith I kill zombies and rats
I'm no doctor seuss but I like Cats in hats
But I digress
Green eggs are a mess
So there you have it you know I don't want it
I like pork chops or lamb
Not green eggs and ham

Good no?

Fruity Loops 8 is pretty fun to play around with. Also my only advice would be to experiment with different beats.
#21
Have a look at some funk beats or something.

Try not to over-complicate it.
