How to Make Beats
The article today is mainly for the beginner or anyone just starting out or the aspiring Dance and Hiphop and Producers around the world looking for ways on how to make their own beats.
This can also relate to any other genre of music .

Years ago the term making a beat would have involved learning and physcally playing live drums but today what most people mean is to create their own intrumentals,with the drum groove being the main focus to start with then adding layers of instruments like bass and lead lines and other riffs and melodies.

In this first example we have two of the most successful producers out there at the moment which was filmed a few a good while ago.

Just for some inspiration here we see Bryan-Michael Cox – Making hits with iMASCHINE and MASCHINE STUDIO showing just how easy it it can be to create your own productions from idea to finish
