Get the Linndrum going using Motu BPM, or your DAW using your own Linn samples. Call up the original Thriller and make sure all your drum hits fall correctly.
Set the tempo to 118bpm. The bass drum is four-to-the-floor with the snares falling on the second beat of each bar and the hats play an eighth note groove. There’s also a cowbell part and open hats that you can see in the screenshot.
Try a subtle swingquantize(16b in Logic if you don’t have BPM) which adds bounce but retains the Disco groove. Tweak the velocities and pitches of all the drums to introduce a more human feel, then add a short plate reverb for an authentic Disco drum sound.
