Structuring Dance Music.

26 Mar

I apologise about not updating more regularly firstly.

I shall be explaining how to structure your track. which is what i found the hardest out of all things to do with music (Strangely). The first thing you should know is that a little bit of maths is involved here (i see you all turning your web browser to Facebook). ¬†as simply as i can put it music structure is called bars. You will see in the top half of logic there are numbers and lines, these are markers of the bars. you’ll see that in the picture below coloured red.

The structure goes up in bars of 4,8,16,20 etc . normally a house/electro track will have an intro of 32 bars. then a breakdown between 16-32 bars then the main element of the track for up to 32 bars then a breakdown again then another drop then an outro for 32 bars.

(This is purely on the norm of tracks i listen to by the way dont let anyone tell you how you should write your music but this is how i’ve been taught.)

 

I should mention here that when i say 32 bars that means go up to the 33rd bar. example is: 2 bars = 1”’2”’3

I hope that makes sense? if not please ask questions and ill try help! also again if you have an easy way of explaining please comment!

So I went to a wedding last night…

8 Jan

Basically i attended a wedding last night and decided to listen to some of the music played in these places. Even though it comprised of mostly rod stewart and neil diamond there were some gems that the DJ played that could be fitting in a club. Some golden old house songs were played that i had pretty much forgotten about and just rotting away in my itunes.

And this one…

and one more.

Just wanted to share some popular music from back in the day. There is some great remixes from all of these of course but credit goes tot he originals always!
