Props to Edwan for the inspiration to do this, and to Vengeance, Hyperbits and Cymatics for the samples used.

Obviously, to make a finished track takes much longer than 5 minutes (!), but getting the basics down quickly is:

a) fun,
b) good practice and
c) forces you to make decisions quickly – one of the hardest things about music production!

DISCLAIMER: Ok, ok…the actual production part of this video lasts for 7 minutes not 5 – I wanted to delve a little bit deeper into a couple of parts!

In this video we cover:

1. Making a beat and layering samples
2. Writing a chord progression and adding rhythm and interest to it
3. Writing a vocal chop melody line
4. A bit of sound design and mixing
5. A bit of arrangement

Hope you enjoy! Drop me a comment and let me know what you think, or if you have any questions 🙂

Until next time – cheers, and happy producing 🙂
