There are many notable producers and DJs that have just livestreamed their sessions making music for FREE, especially in 2020! Lucky for us, the internet and youtube has archived a lot of this footage.
I'm going to list the most valuable dance music livestreams I have found in one place. These are absolutely priceless and are jammed packed with music making knowledge from some of the best out there.
Skrillex Making a Song from Scratch - March 2020
Chris Lake Starting 'In the Yuma' - Sept. 2020
Disclosure breaking down their hit 'Latch' - Dec. 2021
Virtual Riot making a song from start to finish - July 2020
Ian Kirkpatrick Dua Lipa 'Don't Start Now' - April 2020
I love all of these streams for different reasons, but one of the main concepts across all of these is getting a peek under the hood of some of the biggest songs. A big takeaway is not necessarily the complex production techniques, but it's more how the best assemble ideas, move quickly with inspiration, and professionally process sounds. They use a lot of the same techniques we all do when making music and that gives us inspiration and makes our goals of writing big music more attainable.
See you guys next week! -Henry
