Club con­sid­er­a­tions

Future Music - - WELCOME - Si Truss, Ed­i­tor si­mon.truss@fu­

At the risk of point­ing out some­thing mind-blow­ingly ob­vi­ous, dance mu­sic is all about one thing – mak­ing peo­ple dance. How suc­cess­ful your track is at achiev­ing this goal can be af­fected by a myr­iad of fac­tors.

Com­po­si­tion plays a big role; you need to find the right groove, a de­cent hook, the per­fect driv­ing bassline… It’s im­por­tant not to over­look a few ba­sic pro­duc­tion con­sid­er­a­tions too though. For a track to sound at its best on a club sound sys­tem, it needs to sound tight at cer­tain key fre­quen­cies. You need pow­er­ful bass that avoids be­ing muddy and overblown, you need highs that will cut through with­out sound­ing tinny.

In this is­sue’s cover fea­ture, we’ll help you get your tracks club-ready. We’ll look at how to make sure they’ll sound great on any sys­tem, and how to pre­pare your cre­ations to slot per­fectly into a DJ set. As ever, be sure to grab all of the is­sue’s video, sam­ple and tu­to­rial con­tent to help you along. You’ll find it all at file­­ture­mu­sic

We hope you en­joy the mag.
