You want advice? Don’t try to fix it in the mix!
“A good track is built with good ingredients. The kick, snare, the bassline and your basic melody. As you’re putting them together, you gotta immediately start thinking about your final mix. And if that track ain’t sounding fucking awesome with those first few building blocks, you might as well throw it all away and start again.
“And don’t be afraid to use ingredients that have worked for you in the past. This isn’t a competition where you get a prize for using the most amount of different kick drums and snares. If that fucking kick makes you move, stick with it until it stops making you move.
"The number one Morillo rule is: never ever say that you’re gonna fix it in the mix – there’s no such thing as fixing it in the mix, or fixing it when it gets mastered. If you’ve got shit going in, all you’re gonna get out the other side is slightly better sounding shit.”
