How to Make Chords like Disclosure, Kaskade, Deadmau5

Do you ever get bored with using similar chords all the time, or listen to tracks like “I Remember” by Kaskade and Deadmau5 (absolute classic) and wonder how they write their chords? Maybe you love the deep house vibes of Disclosure?

In this short video, I share the secrets of creating beautiful chords in your music…

Heart-melting, jazzy, melancholic, beautiful chords. Yum yum.

Well, I’ve been asked by a lot of readers to expand upon the EDM chord progressions video I made a few months ago (more than any other, actually), and I’ve finally gotten round to it.

This video shows you how to expand your chord abilities in under 5 minutes, using 7ths, 9ths and inversions – and you can use the tips in ANY key and for any chord, by simply counting intervals.

Let me know what you think in the comments, or if you have any questions just ask and I’ll do my best to answer.

Cheers, and happy producing!
