Have you ever been watching a slow electronic dance music video and wondered what it was that made the song so slow? Was it the tempo? Maybe it was the instrumentals. No matter what it was, you just didn’t understand how the song was made. Until now, that is.
To listen to slow electronic dance music, you have to be able to time the music. Think of when you heard the song “Slow” by The Who. Can you remember that song? Probably not. But that tempo was there, and if you listened close enough, it might have been the very tempo you would use for your own track.
So, what does a good DJ do to make sure that the music flow? They slow it down! There are two reasons for this. One reason is they can get away with using less songs. This makes sure that you have less to play in a set and a DJ who knows exactly how slow or fast they want things to go will use fewer tracks. The other reason is that the slower songs may have better fill ability for live drum machines.
Fill is another word for groove. A band or an artist takes a basic song and adds some rhythm to it. Most of the music in the world is based on the beat. It is used to tell a story, suggest emotion, and create melodic tones. All these things are possible because of the beat of a song.
So how can you make your slow electronic dance music come alive? You need to find a great way to record the song. Or, maybe you don’t have the time to record your song and you need someone else to do it for you. Either way, you can still add a lot of personality to your slow song.
What do I mean by that? Well, listen to some podcasts, or videos of people doing their podcasts. When they are talking, they sometimes say something like, “And then you’ll hear that beat coming…” and they slow it down. Then you can hear it in the background. There is a reason for that, and it’s because you can hear the beat in the background!
If you take this same concept of a slow song and apply it to a dj beat maker software, you can make a song that has a beat that is almost like music coming over speakers. It is hard to do, but if you have some digital equipment lying around the house, you can do it. And, you can change the tempo from slow to fast without it affecting the rest of the song!
So, if you really want to break out of your comfort zone and add some character to your songs, then you might want to try to slow things down. Most people don’t want to do it, however, because they feel it is taking away from the main theme of the song. This is where you can add the character your song is supposed to be about. Just use some creativity with the slow electronic dance music and you’ll see how well it works.
If you’re not sure about adding any character to the song, you can just play around with it. You might want to go back to the slow music way before you started getting really into it. It will give you a chance to get comfortable with the beat and the tempo. And, that way you will know when you are ready to up the tempo and move into something a little more intense.
When you get more confident in the slow electronic dance music you are creating, you can add some other things to it. Start with drums, then find something to play with the guitar over. Anything you can play on top of what you already are doing will add some excitement to the song. This will keep your audience excited as you create something new.
You’ll also find that this slow style of music appeals to a wider audience. It’s easy to find material to play as you work on the song. You might even find that people will be dancing along at the same time as you. No matter how long or short you make the music, it will be something that people will find appealing.
