6. Ex­pect the un­ex­pected

Computer Music - - The Drop -

A brand new el­e­ment pre­vi­ously un­heard in your track is a great way of rais­ing an eye­brow be­fore the bass kicks in. Vo­cal sam­ples work par­tic­u­larly well for this ef­fect – you can ei­ther play it in full just be­fore the drop, or grad­u­ally hint at it as the build-up pro­gresses. This mo­ment gives the au­di­ence a pay­off for lis­ten­ing through the break­down, and sig­nals that the big stuff is around the cor­ner!
