Do not over do it with percussion

Do not over do it with percussion One of the main mistakes new producers make when making edm is they program one 2 or 3 bar drum loop then they just loop it over and over  until they get a 8 minute track! This is by far one of the worst things you can do . Number one think of a drummer for a moment. Im sure you been to a Coldplay concert before  and seen a real drummer haven't we all been to a Coldplay concert? If not check this video.




Notice how the drummer does not hit the percussion or drums with the sticks at the same velocity,the same length of time and make the same sound each time. The drummer also has 2 hands and 2 feet so he can only trigger so many hits at any given time. The drummer also does not just play the  open high hat,the bass drum and the snares on the 2s and the 4s over and over and sound like a robot. No the drummer is human he gets tired he may hit one or a few hits with more force than others,then the drummer as you notice is setting the tone for the rest …

Counterpoint in Edm

Do not forget counterpoint I know counterpoint is overlooked in edm but ,if done right is quite effective as you will see from my example below. Basically all you need to do to get started is to write 2 melodies going in two different directions in the same key basically  contrary motion. Do not worry about falling on the same pitch or anything just experiment until you get something that gels then bounce off it. For instance start your song with 2 melodies in 2 instruments playing the same time,then bring in your main instrument in a new melody in same key new instrument but later on in this melody bring back one of the earlier melodies to bring back the counter point. At first it may be a bit confusing just remember a few things counterpoint is not harmony,counter point is not an arp or arpeggio.Its also not the verse.Think of it as another melody line in contrast with your first melody . You can use it anywhere in your song during the middle 8 section/or break or any section youd …
