An example of track
If you want to listen to an example of what kind of sound you can get with these techniques play the track below.
The track is titled “White Lies” and it’s my earnest attempt at producing a simple electro-disco sorta track. I don’t go clubbing (I was born in 1971 and, as of writing, I am 50 years old), I don’t listen to a lot of dance music and you see my taste is mostly influenced by the work of artists and producers of the 1970s such as Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones and the Jackson 5. I had the experience of listening to seminal electronic tracks such as Kraftwerk’s Radioaktivitat and Donna Summer’s I Feel Love through a big disco system when they came out and I was a child. I have no idea how this track would sound on a big club system and whether the beat would invite anyone to actually dance. I have some classical training and I understand music mostly in terms of patterns and basic harmonies, rather than dynamics , “feel” and “groove”. This is intended more like an example of quick reduction of the genre. At the link below, you can download the stems to the track (the individual loops that compose the mix), packed in a ZIP FL Studio file, which you can open with FL Studio and edit or just unzip to extract the individual stems and use them with another program.
Here’s another example, titled “Your Opinion Matters”. This one contains the image of the Coca-Cola logo. Click here for instructions on how to achieve this.
