Andre from RAC released an audio guide to creating a summer jam on Soundcloud this week to accompany the launch of his summer playlist on spotify (look on the sidebar to play it).
“One of the very first things you want to do is pick a major key,” he says at the start of the track.
From there, the guide goes on to explain how to add drums and pad the track to fill it out.
It’s by no means comprehensive, but it’s a nice look at his approach to making music. Chords + bass + drums + pads = feel good music. It’s a simple recipe, but one that he’s mastered.
You can catch RAC at a few festivals this summer and fall.
