Producer Notes 002: Kevin de Vries & Mau P, Main Stage Melodic Techno Style


Session 2 of the new YouTube Series with Francois PML called "Producer Notes". Episode 002 analyses and breaks down the style of artists like Kevin de Vries and Mau P and labels like Afterlife. Specifically looking at the massive main stage festival sound.

The key lessons from this episode are:

  • Very deliberate low end
  • Don't go too crazy with melodies (less is more for peak time tracks)
  • Purposeful layering (what’s the purpose of this element?)
  • Simple LFO things in Break with Free Arpeggiator
  • Add Energy through Ride in Peak Parts
  • Hat suppressor keeping hats down when snare hits (like a dynamic EQ)
