After producing for a commercial EDM group for a while, I lost the will to live and got a huge writers block for two years. I'm now trying to get back in but I'm having a hard time escaping the 4 chord pop progression formula.

This is what I came up with lately, there isn't much going on yet, I can't think of a lead.

Any opinions on both the mix and the musical idea would be greatly appreciated!

I like it, nice chords and groovy. Kick maybe stands out to much.

Regarding 205wip - you would remove current sub from bassline, and recreate it separately with dedicated sub instrument to get more fullness?


yes something like that, send me the track so i can have a go

Sure, why not... And if anybody else wants to try messing with this. I don't know exactly what is the best way for sending track.

This is a zip file with separated wav tracks for drums, bassline and pad. Knock your self out

It's 127 BPM exactly

thanks dude!

something like this for the sub



note: i boosted the drums at 80hz to give the kick a bit more oomph - also sent the drums to some very short reverb - 4K compressor on the master just to even everything out a tad

I like it! It's got more groove now. Maybe a bit too much down there. Can you finish this? Collab ? I would really like to publish something . And i probably wont finish this by myself. It just need a little polish.

What are you monitoring with?

This is a very enjoyable track to me. on the technical side those noise impacts hit too hard, they are too loud, apart from that its a really nice track.


Yes it's a layer of bass synth, but i don't know how to lower octave just on that layer...I'll check it, thanks. Glad you like the track!

I'm monitoring with 50$ Logitech 2.1 system . I also have a pair of Zensor 3 on some yamaha reciever in living room. I use that sometimes. If that was what you were asking.

Thanks, I always had a tendency to go a wee bit crazy on the sub. Old habits die hard.

Which synth is it? Most synth can do this, it is usually somewhere in oscillator/sample settings.

Zensors should serve you pretty well to check on bass, as well as non-skullcandy/beats by dre headphones with a decent frequency range, but keep in mind that headphones don't have a good stereo image and bass can be heard but not felt(how I developed my habit of going crazy on subs). Sorry if this is unsolicited advice you already knew.
