Between the cracks is a style of drumming when the time shifts from straight to swung and back with no stops, “squeezing” and “widening” the groove but staying in the same bpm. Here some drum tracks and examples. For referece see chris dave and the masters (bernard purdie, zigaboo modeliste and the other funk drummers from ’50-’70) and Stanton Moore.

The ”between the cracks drumming” is used a lot by deejays and producers ‘cos give the tracks this supercool human touch. listen….
