So what’s the deal with this site? Why did I set it up in the first place?
Ok, so, I’m sure you’re aware there’s a TON of information online about electronic music. In the last couple of years, especially, it’s gotten huge. But with something as fast-paced / constantly-evolving / en vogue as EDM (electronic dance music) it’s hard to keep track of everything. Maybe you’ve just heard some new track at the club, or at a rave, or on youtube , and you know nothing about the construction of the track – or what to call it – but you know you like it… Well, that’s a start. The next step is figuring out what you like about the track, and being able to articulate that and figure out how to recreate it in your own way, in your own studio (or laptop) and create something you’re happy with.
The problem with something that progresses as fast as electronic music does is the sheer fact that, well, as soon as you learn about a new style, there’s something else to look at, some new style that’s waiting to pop out in the next few months and years. It’s easy to fall behind what’s popular, and we’re not talking about making Top 40 Club Hits (although if that’s what you want to do with your skills, go for it…) but instead, we’re talking about understanding the most efficient and creative ways to go about modern sound synthesis. The more you know, the better your new album is going to be, plain and simple.
So back to the original point – why did I set this site up in the first place?
I’ve been working in music for years. I’ve developed my own sound creation techniques that save time, and allow me to produce excellent tracks. I know a ton about electronic music, and non-electronic music, as well. I’ve been on record labels (and have experience running a label) and have worked with tons of musicians in the past. I’ve played shows, released dozens of albums, had my tracks played out by tens of thousands of fans – and with all this experience, what better way to express my love of this music than to set up a site and teach new producers everything I’ve learned?
Electronic music is my passion, I simply love it – and my hope is that you will love it, as well :)
If you’re new to the scene, and have no idea what you’re doing, that’s Ok! You can learn a little bit at a time. It’s important to not get intimidated. If you just learn a little bit at a time and remember to keep going, you’ll eventually get to the point where you’re so well-equipped, motivated, and full of good ideas, that you’ll be able to make the best tunes of your life, and you’ll be able to rock out and have a great time with all your news fans!
If you’re having writer’s block, you can look through some of the tutorials and get some new ideas… Or if you’re already an expert and want to polish up your craft a little bit, feel free to click around and see what you can find here :)
I hope you have a great experience here on Bassadelic.com, and if you have any feedback or want to get in touch, feel free! I love hearing from people, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
