15.30 As is inevitable in any modern dance music production, sidechaining plays a part in the sound of
Mating Call – although not as much as you might expect. Daniël explains: “We used a sidechain with the original kick, just to give some room when the bass is playing. I don’t think we put it on everything.
“We just make one aux channel with a compressor on it, and then route everything we like to go to to the sidechain. Every now and then, we turn it off, because in the breaks we don’t want to hear the pumping sidechaining sound.”
