So I've been listening to the track called v by Flume and I can't wrap my head around the beautiful and complex drum patterns.

Can someone describe what he is playing with here? If yes, what would you recommend me trying out? Like it's not only basic drums he is adding like snare, kick, hi-hat.. there is some other samples and when I try to recreate, it sounds basic. I can hear delay, maybe gating and distortion.

Here is the track

The real craziness starts at 48 seconds.

check out permut8, unfiltered audio spec ops (and others) and some of glitch machines plugins. Also grandular plugins like mangle.

My guess, he's taking out the individual perc hit from the original loop and just doing crazy pitched delays with the grain delay in Ableton. The drum samples that come in around 48sec sound like some are from soundoracle vol3. That clap sounds almost exactly like the "Civil Clap" in that pack, but who knows. Here's the original loop if you haven't heard it https://instaud.io/M6j (https://instaud.io/M6j) Good Luck

Use recordings of rattling cutlery/dishes, waterdrops and so on, in short, foley recordings!
