not sure if i've posted this at some point in past so bear with ..

a drum pattern over 1 bar is essentially a break ..

alot of Hip.Hop deviated from this structure .. fills n variated patterns .. for example the Rocafella Era . Just Blaze popularised the fills in a beat . The early 90s .. and late 80s was very much 1 bar driven .

producing 1 bar layers and dipping them in and out is probably the tightest structure i have been able to enforce .

This is not gospel .. but very much opinionated .

Ive done 8 bar productions .. it just doesn't give me that classic feel i love from the 90s.

interesting theory.
i like your approach, sometimes a 1 bar or even a half bar of beat (boomboomtchick) is the way to go.

i like to understand that a break is essentially a part that interrupts the song and stands out, like a solo for the drummer... "give the drummer some (space)".

if you arrange a 1 bar loop clever nobody will recognize! and that's a challenge.

1 bar loops are dope but for some reason i always have thought that 2 bar loops are hip hop's gold standard

although yeah back in the early days of hip hop 1 bar loops were the only thing possible p much

My Yamaha AN/DX200s only do 1 bar loops. But you can actually do a lot to not make that boring to the listener. Add swing, play backwards, transpose the synth -24 to +24, and of course changing the synth parameters while it plays.
