Making oldschool house beats

Hi guys

I’d like to know how you can make those awesome oldschool house beats. I’m working with ableton.

A real good example from this is the track from Flashmob called brickhouse.

I’m also liking the drums in this next video. You can see that he is using some instrument for this.
