Default Listening to dance music ruins my drumming!

I like dance music: drum&bass and chilled out electronic stuff like underworld or leftfield. For the last year or so i'v been more in the mood to chill to a nice dance beat than really listen to more interesting rock grooves.

But without even knowing, i seem to have replaced some creativity in my playing with the amen break; playing drum and bass tempo has become easier and my rock is going stale...

I'm not looking for advice, i just feel cheated by my subconcious mind.

Anyone else experienced this?

i didn't know what you were talking about with that "amen break", so i looked it up on youtube and found this fascinating history of the amen break and drum & bass music in general:

That video really is amazing; I knew the general history, but the use in hip-hop music and the 'slicing' of the break is all new to me...
