About This Class

Song remixes can be a great way to crack into the music industry and build your name as a producer. In this 60-minute class with globe trotting DJ King Arthur (Hexagon/Spinnin Records), you'll follow along as he builds a remix from scratch – a skill that has been instrumental in getting him to where he is today. You'll learn:

  • How to define the purpose of your remix - where will it be played?
  • Creating a groove for your new version of the song with baselines and leads
  • Utilizing percussion to set the tempo
  • Adding in transitions to polish a track
  • Including intros and outros so DJs can easily feature your track in a mix
  • Tips on sharing and spreading the track

Whether you're a seasoned producer or an aspiring up and comer, this class will give you the ins and outs for what you should consider when creating a dance remix meant to get spins. After going through the lessons, you'll share a remix of your own.

It is recommended that you have a basic understanding of digital music production (any digital audio workstation will suffice) to fully utilize the lessons King Arthur shares in this class.

Great tips and tricks. Better than the most courses i seen yet.
It's a good course to get an overall view of how a remix is done but the dj is not going deep or very specific into the topic. Things like how to create the sounds or so.
