With the internet evolving all the time, it is quickly becoming easier for you to do things that you might not have ever dreamed possible. This includes the ability to make your own dance music online, that will have a packed club paying attention and waiting for your next hit.
This process begins with you finding a website that will connect you with the software you need. Online there are hundreds of websites that are devoted to helping you to make the strongest dance music possible. They just require that you do spend some time focusing on the progression of the track and ensure that it gets the heart pounding.
Audacity Is a Free, Open Source editor that you can use on a Mac, Windows or Linux computer. It really is a great tool for people that want`s to start making music online, and is beginner friendly.
The only problem i found with this free software is that one`s you have change the audio and don’t like it, you can not go back and tweak the composer or EQ again. You will have to start over, unless you get a paid tool that is. The tool will convert your finished song into MP3 format, which is not really that good, WAV is better if you want to send it to a producer, But it will help you learn how to make music online, and when you ready, go for a pro tool. Once you have selected between a couple different options, it will be time for you to look at the tutorials that they offer. The goal is going to be to get a deep understanding of how you can create your own dance music, while remaining in the confines of the software you are using.
Typically, these tutorials will touch on everything from the kinds of beats that can be found in dance music, to how you can take compression’s and supercharge the music that you are producing in the process. With the tutorial out of the way, you can then begin to flesh out a track and make it your own. Often, this starts by simply choosing your core instrument and then creating a small track sample. When you have the beat and general sound in place, you can begin to flesh out the song, so it comes across as fresh and vibrant. It will be important that you maintain the flow, for the best results possible.
For example, if you have a hard driven heavy dance beat, you wouldn’t suddenly change it to a ballad as the progression isn’t natural. Sound effects are going to be the next important element that your track is going to need, in order to be successful. Often, this will be tricks like compression in the music that gives it some depth and a life of its own.
A lot of the electronic house music was produced in Chicago over in the USA during the mid 1980’s. Producers and DJ’s introduced the genre in bars and clubs all over the UK and the rest of Europe by the mid and late 1980’s. The UK took house music, Acid house, Electronic Body Music (formed in Belgium) and created UK Hardcore. The Hardcore sound then incorporated sped up Hip Hop beats, piano strings, dub and sound samples that can only be described as cartoon like. Hardcore opened the door to other similar sounding genres like Happy Hardcore and jungle. Happy Hardcore sped up to between 160 BPM– 180 BPM and included piano and techno sound samples. Jungle set at around 150 BPM to 170 BPM to include Reggae vocalist artists and Reggae sound samples and lost the piano and Techno influence. You would now associate original hardcore with ‘Old Skool Hardcore‘ and a lot of popular songs are still being played out by DJ’s all over the world today in 2013.
By 1992 the Hardcore scene, or also known as the Rave scene was huge and rife all over the UK. Crowds of people in their thousands would flock in to empty warehouses and open land for illegal raves to take drugs and dance to hardcore for up to 10 hours at a time. Of Course there were legal raves such as the famous fantasia which started up 1991 and they in fact counted 30,000 people at One Step Beyond! This really was the beginning of the club and dance scene that we know so much about today. There were so many big name producers such as The Prodigy releasing ‘You Love’ back in 1991 which is one of the biggest dance tracks of all time. Various other big name British producers such as SL2 with ‘Way in my Brain’ and of course one of the most famous acts ‘The Ratpack’ with ‘Searchin’ for My Rizla” who really did bring Hip Hop in to the mix with their vocal and sound samples. Old Skool had become commercial and ‘Searchin for My Rizla’ went straight to number one beating massive acts such as Madonna and Kriss Kross to the number one spot in the charts. Most radio stations didn’t add ‘Searchin for my Rizla’ to their play-list as it was blatantly a song about taking drugs! When dance music finds its way in to the commercial scene it can sometimes mean the end of the underground scene where Hardcore was at the start of the 1990’s and this was evident with the release of Sesame Street – hardcore mix. This Old Skool sound and beat is timeless and still used in today’s dance songs and main steam pop records.
What is Dance Music? The definition of dance music is quite simply- Music composed/ played specifically for dancing to. Dance music includes a whole variety of music from waltz to tango, disco to rock.From the dawn of mankind humans possessed the desire to danceIn accient times, the first purpose of dance was ritual – to the gods of nature. Dancing is proven to make us feel good. Dancing is used in celebrations. In ancient Greece,after harvesting grapes, the occasion was celebrated in honour of the God of wine, Dionysus, where people danced all night long. Although dance and music can be traced back to prehistoric times, it is unclear which came first. As rhythm and sound go hand in hand and inspire movement.The relationship between the two has always been symbiotic.
Our ears have the fewest sensory cells of any sensory organ–3,500 inner hair cells occupy our ears versus 100 million photoreceptors in our eyes. Yet our mental response to music is amazingly adaptable; even a little study can “retune” the way the brain handles musical inputs.
It’s a well known fact that music is good for you, as it builds neuropathways and stimulates the mind. Recently scientists discovered what makes a tune catchy, after locating the brain area where a song’s “hook” gets caught. Its in the auditory cortex,which handles information from ears.
Dance Music in particular stimulates our brains, as studies found, thus the popular demand for night clubs. An uplifting melody with an uptembo rhythm increases our stimulation in the auditory complex.
In recent times the term “dance music” is more familiarly known as club music, electronic music…techno, trance, house, eurodance, breakbeat and trance,drum and bass,hip hop,raga.
Electronic dance music evolved in the 1970s. Kraftwerk, Georgio Moroder, Donna Summer and Sylvester are just a few of the artists who started the dance music phenomenon.
From 1988, many terms of dance music evolved
From Acid House to Techno to ambient wave to trance.
Nowadays we have all sorts of dance music from all over the world. We hear it on our radios, Tvs, in our night clubs. A recent survey found dance music is the most popular genre among music tastes, and is growing in popularity even more each day.
I found this interesting web station last week with a nice mix of dance music.
