Hey bro , of course remember.
What i did was to break every bar down by beats. Check out where the clave is landing, on what hand or on which bass drum beat. Loop each bar or beat until you can play it consistently then add the next beat and the next and then do the same with the next bar. Until you can play 2 bars without stopping. Do it over and over until it feels natural. Then move on to the next permutation. They will get easier as you master the process.
Hope that helps
Abrazos
PM
