Producer Notes: Tinlicker, Above & Beyond | Melodic Vocal House Style, Anjunadeep in Ableton


This is session 6 of the YouTube Series with Francois PML called "Producer Notes". Episode 006 analysing the Vocal Melodic House style of Anjunadeep artists "Tinlicker" and to a certain degree also "Above & Beyond".

Watch and see what we can learn from this style sitting somewhere between Melodic House, Trance and Progressive House.

The key lessons from this episode are:

  • Add an uplifting feel by “going up” with the bass notes (C-D-E).
  • The track creates tension between G Lydian vs Emin (getting the fine line between euphoria and nostalgia).
  • Harmonies: Don’t make it too complicated, keep a simple arrangement, simple harmonic structure.
  • Main melody arps: short decays and arpeggio note jumps with “Device on” automation for movement.
  • Adding oceanic wave sounds behind pad for organic feel.
  • Foley sliced clap sounds for organic feel in drums.
  • More key lessons in the video!
