In this tutorial we will discuss the top approach to learning Organic House music production. Let's get started!
When making electronic music it’s incredibly easy to fall into the trap of making tracks which sound very synthetic. That’s because most of the sounds we use are made by using synthesizers - and almost all of them at the core use the same basic waveforms. Even most samples are synthesized, making the drums quite static sounding.
In recent years a new, much more natural sound has been getting more and more popular. The genre of Organic House combines downtempo arrangements with ethnic, Indian and Middle Eastern elements. Such tracks often feature multi-layered percussion and a melodic layer that combines both synthesizers and acoustic instruments.
At the core of the genre are the drum grooves. The typical sounds here are quite soft kicks, natural acoustic snares and hats and recorded hand claps. However - most sample packs for electronic music feature purely synthetic drums - big kick drums and snares, metallic hats and synthesized claps - which is exactly the opposite of what you need for Organic House.
Another layer of complexity and depth is the use of foley recordings in Organic House tracks. Whereas it is possible to record household objects and the outside world even with your phone, the process of post-production is quite time-consuming and does not always result in producing useful sounds.
Using quality samples for electronic tracks allows you to make them full of life, dynamics and interest. By switching boring drum sounds to organic samples, your songs immediately start to sound exciting, rich and elaborate.
At PML we have a mission of providing producers with professional sound sets exactly tailored to each genre. That’s why over the recent years we’ve been creating a huge set of resources dedicated especially to the genre of Organic House.
We’re proud to present: the Organic Sounds Bundle.
At the heart of Organic Sounds are three volumes of our Organica pack series. These best-selling packs are a treasure chest of samples, synth presets and project files. All volumes give you over 790 one shots - drums samples, organic foley percussion, various instrument sounds and effects. The included 1000+ loops feature drums, percussion as well as melodic phrases.
When you browse through the Organica series, artists like Kiasmos, Bonobo, Tim Green, Stimming, Sébastien Léger or Monkey Safari come to mind. Incorporating even a few of these sounds into a track instantly makes it sound much more elaborate and natural!
Another part of the Organic Sounds Bundle are the complete two volumes of the Woodlands series. These give you a vast selection of samples inspired by the organic electronica of Tourist and Bonobo. By using any of the 175+ one-shots or 215+ loops into your track, you add real organic crunch, which in turn makes your productions incredibly unique.
But the magic of the Organic Sounds Bundle doesn’t end there!
With Percussive House, you get over 340 loops and 265 one shots, all of which infuse your tracks with organic grooves, inspired by artists such as Tim Green and Adam Port. Starting with recorded foley sounds, all the way through different kinds of exotic and rare percussion instruments, to professional and strong sounding drum samples processed especially to fit Organic House, the selection of sounds in this pack is incredibly vast. On top of that, you get a great selection of melodic phrases and one-shots: flute, bass and ambience loops, as well as synth shots and phrases.
