Producertech has launched a new tutorial course in which John Tejada rebuilds his track Unstable Condition from scratch, designing sounds, mixing and constructing the entire arrangement.
Viewers can not only witness the process of building one of the biggest Deep House tracks from the last decade, but also download and keep the completed project.
John is no stranger to production with a career in electronic music spanning from 1994 to present. In this time John has released four albums with the revered label Kompakt and had releases on Pokerflat, Cocoon, Plug Research, Seventh City, Playhouse, Defected and his own label Palette Recordings. He’s done over 100 remixes for acts as big as The Postal Service and Télépopmusic and played at clubs and festivals in over 30 countries across the world, as well as gracing the Late, Late show with James Corden and Conan, performing with collaborator Reggie Watts as their duo project Wajatta.
The course starts with a quick analysis of the track and a look at the original project, after which the beats are put together using oneshots from Loopcloud. John then designs each of the synth parts one by one, using entirely Wavetable from the Live Suite. Once all parts are in place, he explains some of the key steps involved in mixing the track, showing the importance of metering in balancing parts and a wealth of techniques for processing individual sounds with effects.
