J. Cole - Kenny Lofton (Production)

happy mother day guys..

Recently been really digging Truly Yours 2 by J. Cole. I really like anything he puts out, especially production wise.

This is the song I am wondering about: J. Cole - Kenny Lofton (ft Young Jeezy) (Truly Yours 2) - YouTube

My questions are pretty simple, but I feel as if the elements in this track are all on point!

A few things I was wondering - This snare/clap combination really pops so well, it seems like it's the loudest sound in the track, I am wondering what you think they did to get it to pop so well..

Second thing is the sub bass! When i listen on my monitors it is the PERFECT level within the track, and to me it seems like with how loud the other elements are that is pretty great they were able to get the sub bass to fit so well. In my opinion I hear a lot of mid-range that might make it poke through so well. Thoughts?

The next thing I really liked was the hi-hat on the track, it is very live sounding to me and compliments the drums very well. I find it really hard to find hi-hat sounds that flow well and sound natural with live-type drums, do you think these drum sounds are all from the same kit?

Just wanted a few people to chime in on what they thought...really loving Canei Finch/J.Cole combo!

Can't really speak on the other things.. But the high hats are really easy to emulate and there are numerous ways to get that hi-hat swing. You can either find hi-hat loops which are a dime a dozen with drum packs like croupe and the m-phazes kits. You can do it with 3-4 hi-hat samples multi level and shifting your hi-hats off the grid just a tad to get the swing. Or you can get and vst that has multi velocity's do the same..
