Bass.....the most important element of a dance record? Probably.
Naturally, different genres of music call for different styles of bass. Dubstep calls for loud growling basslines, techno calls for a more rumbly and sub focused bass. Each to their own.
Bass is subjective and changes in relation to the genre of music you make, however, these tips should apply to all genres of dance music. Mixing a live bass sound is slightly different, but here at North Origin, we are all about dance music, so lets have a look.
Another quick tips post, this time the topic is EQ, arguably the most important mixing tool.
In my opinion, EQ is the second most important aspect of a mix, behind setting your volume faders. EQ really allows us to carve out space and craft sounds to fit together.
EQ is generally subjective, however, it is very easy to over do and often people set very unnecessary EQ plugins. EQ doesn't have to be complex and if you find yourself making outrageous changes to your EQ, it is probably better to just change the original sound.

Another 'tips' post today and the topic is Compression.
In this day and age, if you produce dance music then there really isn't any need for external compressors. Yes, you can get a great sound by using hardware compressors, however, you can also get great results using software compressors, which is far easier. Software has come a long way, so if you aren't familiar with how to operate hardware compressors then don't worry about it.
Here are some tips when it comes to using compression in your productions.
