With four consecutive Beatport number 1s, Dodge & Fuski is truly a force to be reckoned with when it comes to all things dance music. Returning after the success of his Dubstep fundamentals course where he broke down the massive track ‘Killer Bees’, Rob Talbott of DnF is back to give you the lowdown on creating a remix. Focusing on arrangement, the course is in two parts – part 1 in the studio with Rob as he demonstrates building a remix from the stems, part 2 is a commentary on a huge new Future House remix of Orla Gartland’s ‘Souvenirs’, made under his 4AM alias, concluding with a comparison of the two arrangements and tips on creative mixing.
The course is available immediately after purchase, and can be streamed online 24/7/365. Included with the course is a large pack of bonus samples, courtesy of Loopmasters.
The course is available for purchase from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.
Loop Lounge has announced the release of Soul Of The Machine, a DJ Traktor Remix Sets pack by Simon Owen.
LOOP LOUNGE presents “Soul Of The Machine”, a collection of dark techno sounds crafted specially to be used with effects, allowing DJs to create infinitely unique variations of its theme.
DJs have long chosen Traktor for the ability to combine and layer loops to create progressions on the fly. With the “Soul Of The Machine” set, DJs have total control over isolated elements and enjoy the added artistic flexibility and freedom that comes with it.
Each of the four remix sets is broken down to its key parts and numbered for easy logical use. In the booklet, commonly used techno audio effects that work well with the loops are also listed, providing DJs with a starting point for their experimentation.
Soul Of The Machine is available for purchase for £14 GBP (.wav package) / £16 GBP (.trk package).
