Turning simple musical ideas into full tracks can sometimes be harder than it looks. While dance music structures can sometimes seem simple on paper, nailing those perfect builds, drops and breakdowns can take real skill.
That’s where our Club Construction cover feature comes in. Across nine pages of tutorials, tips and guides, we’ll show you how to turn those basic loops into full, club-ready arrangements packed full of excitement and drama.
