to the op : just keep listening to music: all types of music. definitely take in as much non-edm as you can. listen to classical music, classic movie soundtracks, songs from great songwriters.

also, go at it from another angle. find soloists whose single, solo, melodic performances invoke a sense of a complete accompaniment. then try to do the same (no need to be an accomplished musician; whistling in the shower will do)

If you want any kind of edge within a traditionally cut 'n' paste, drag 'n' drop genre, then you need to start listen to everything


Good advice el-bo, but completely falling on a WUM troll's ears.

@ Barry - indeed :hihi: (and see you in the next one!)

Perhaps the comments are too negative. Judging only by that interview video which ghettosynth kindly posted-- Bless his heart the young man is a blindingly fast typist, lightning with a mouse, and capable of explaining his creative process at least as succinctly as Miles Davis ever managed! :)

Makes me think of a Pet Shop Boys lyric:

Young offender
what's your defence?
You're younger than me, obviously

Is that fire in your eyes or the glow of machines?
Watch how your fingers burn over the keys
so sure what you do
I haven't a clue

re-mastering Beatles' records on earbuds and iPad, making sure that kicks sound as punchy as metronome clicks, since for them there's no distinction between kick drum and metronome click, both sound the same on iPhone speaker while hanging around in Walmart.
