I'm looking for some kind of software to make beats like in this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8X-nzihGVH8. Skip to about 1:00.

Drumkit programs apparently don't give me these sounds.

Also, is there a drum machine (so not software) that's capable of stuff like this?

I hope I am of some help with this, but I doubt I will be, but here are some links to all free downloadable software and online programs that use things like these:

Online: Aviary Music Creator
http://www.aviary.com/tools/music-creator

Downloadable: Hammerhead Rhythm Station
http://www.threechords.com/hammerhead/download.shtml

I would recommend Aviary for all types of instruments and I would recommend Hammerhead for more techno-like beats. I hope I helped!

Propellerhead's Reason can do most things, even things it wasn't intended for, and it's especially great at stuff like this.

I use FL Studio on everything from metal to electronic. People do the same for Cubase and Reaper.

You just need to find software you are comfortable with, and read up on sampling and such to get your self good electronic beats. Also check out the Electronic Label in the pit. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1255181

Not entirely true these days. Both BFD and EZ Drummer have electronic/8 bit expansion packs that can give you this kind of feel. ProTools users get Boom, a TR-clone software, for free which can do this (especially with the swing parameters of the built-in sequencer). Reason is excellent for this type of music overall but even Propellerheads' first software, the ReBirth RB-338 ("discontinued" but available as a free download if you register at Propellerheads' site) can do this courtesy of two drum machine emulations (TR-808 and TR-909).

This.

I heard somewhere The Prodigy use Reason and they're not exactly short for sounds aha.
