How To Make Dance Music


To make dance music that people want to dance to, you have to understand how people dance. In an EDM song, people naturally want to dance to the drums and bass. If your drums and bass rhythmically create bad dance patterns, then people will have a hard time dancing to your music. Improving your checkerboarding technique and Midi drum patterns will help you create dance music people want to dance to.

Checkerboarding is the process of layering and stacking your sounds in your music. Learn more about checkerboarding by watching How To Checkerboard Sounds in Music Production. Also watch How To Layer Drums to learn about layering drums in Ableton.
