How To Make - The Feels with Paolo Mojo / 540

The Feels with Paolo Mojo

View Course

Sonic Academy welcomes back Paolo Mojo to take the helm and show us how he made his monster track ‘The Feels’ Currently riding high in the Beatport charts and having gained plays by the master himself - Mr Pete Tong on his BBC Radio 1 show.
Those of you familiar with Paolo will know, his Renaissance & Balance DJ mixes are up there with the best and production wise his “1983” on Pryda Friends is one of the most enduring emotional dance records of modern times.

“The Feels” is another wondrous piece of heart-swimmingly good music from Paolo. It’s not an obvious banger by any means but its superb bassline and killer arpeggios will keep you coming back for more again and again. With support from Jeremy Olander, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, and Will Atkinson (BBC Radio 1 Residency) you know this is a stunning record.

Here Paolo lifts the lid on the production process as you get to watch and study a professional track, signed by one of the best labels around and played by some of the most respected DJs in the world today.
This is an opportunity not to missed and will give you next level insight that no other site is offering.

Not only that but we have teamed up with Glasgow Underground to bring you another massive remix contest. After the huge success of Darin Epsilon’s we know the standard is getting higher and what a track to bend, twist and make your own. What is a competition without prizes?
