“We use sidechain com­pres­sion quite a lot. So with our per­cus­sion, and dance mu­sic in gen­eral, the kick should be pretty prom­i­nent. It’s fre­quently a 4/4 pat­tern, so we duck our per­cus­sion to the kick drum, and if the snare or clap is fall­ing on the same note, then we’ll duck it to that. It gives you more head­room, and gives those more promi­nence in the mix, which we like and is sort of ex­pected with dance mu­sic.”
