If you have a moment it would be great if you could check out my track ‘Dad Dancing’, the first tune I have produced and mixed by myself. Someone else mastered it for me. It was done mostly with samples in Ableton Live. I never set out to create something called Dad Dancing - I was manipulating a piece of audio and it sounded like ‘Dad Dancing’ to my ear. It seemed to fit, so I recorded the phrase myself.
I also put together a video featuring clips of dancing dads from all over the world and decided to release the track mainly to learn more about the digital distribution process. I am a songwriter primarily (working with others) but I have taken the leap into production to try and have more creative input into the projects I’m involved with, as well as improving my technical skills.
I know it’s not perfect but, compared to what I was producing even a few months ago, it’s definitely a step forward for me and I aim to keep learning and improving (thank you Sonic Academy for all the great videos!)
Thanks for viewing/any advice/feedback.
