Ever since spending 2.5 months in spain, I was totally absorbed by the "palmas" style of clapping. I often encorporate this into my looping. Usually I set up a semi-short loop (1-2 bars long) on the edp, and set feedback to 0 and overdub on. This has the effect of repeating everything I do exactly once. I switch every two bars between open palm and closed palm clapping and basically play a duet with myself. It takes a while to learn how to compliment a rhythm by clapping "in-between" the other claps, but its well worth it and really sounds cool. Sometimes I'll do this while sitting on a cajon, and things can get really cool...
