That track just makes me feel so damn good! How do you classify that style? And where do I start out making it? Quite different to the usual wobbly dubby stuff.
I fully accept and embrace any comments about being a commercial noob
first off, don't worry about the whole 'commercial' thing. i don't get anybody who disses commercial music. it's the music that's AIMED to be commercial that is wank. if something is made artistically, and intricately, and just 'happens' to become huge, what's the issue? anyway after that little rant...
that style is just your standard electro house/dance music. to start out making it, get a four to floor, start off with some cheesey synths, bring a chunky bass, and on the drop emphasise all of them to add a sense of depth to it. (i'm mediocre at explaining things, and i always fall back on lamens terms so bare with me
take this as advice for getting a good electro bassline -
(complextro is just a fancy name for the new sorts of electro that includes dubstep attributes, it involves a little bit of 'wub wub', but you can learn about electro basslines here nonetheless)
do you have nexus? that'd also be a good place to start with VST's to get some good synths. what plug-ins and DAW's are you using?
i'm sorry if this is no help! but have fun producing, any other questions feel free to pm me! -
