This week Sonic Academy is super excited to present our latest tutorial How To Make Trap with brand new tutor James - one half of Circus Record's Bristol based duo DISKORD.
Alongside support from label founder, Flux Pavilion, DISKORD has received acclaim for their sound from key industry influencers Antiserum, Adventure Club, Krewella, Datsik, Skism, and dance music ‘rookie MVP’, DJ Brillz.
In this intricately detailed yet highly approachable tutorial, James reveals the methods in creating DISKORD's Trap style. From building the simple but effective beat on a blank canvas, right through to mixing and mastering the track, this tutorial will take you step-by-step through the process of creating your own monster Trap sound - not forgetting how to make that genre defining 808 sub!
Predominantly using Ableton's stock plugins, James also shows us that this DAW is more than capable of competing with those who have a huge arsenal of plugins at their disposal, creating sick growls, wicked ass breakdowns, phat as you like buildups, before slammin in with one of the best drops ever created in a tutorial.
With its ever growing momentum through the sub-genres of dance music culture, the Trap music movement is currently having a major impact on the dance music scene today due to its increasing viral popularity and has truly gone mainstream.
This How To Make tutorial's going to help you get on that same platform and be part of this genre's success!
Enjoy and create!
