We represent you in the face of the Music Industry.

As a smaller label, we are able to focus more on our artists instead of neglecting them like larger labels tend to do.

Got Talent?

We are always on the lookout for talented artists, producers, creators, etc.

Music in the Making
Making music is not so complicated but it's always a better idea to do it right so that you don't spend time correcting your mistakes.
Step 1

Always start with a "hook". Fill 8 bars with musical content made of Lyrics and a Melody. Try keeping the shortest notes to 1/8 notes to begin with. You can add 16th notes to it later on if you want to have it follow a groove.

But what's a hook, you ask? It is the most catchy part of a song or piece of music. In other words, a hook is the highlight of the song--perhaps because it is easy to remember. The Chorus line is usually the hook; however, sometimes even verses are so catchy that they are considered the hook of the song.

MAKE IT INTERESTING
In music, we have tried many ways to make it interesting to our ears. Whether it is a 1 note melody or a combo of all 12 tones, the context is what makes it all very interesting.
Step 2

The music is usually known as the "backing" of most songs that have a lead vocal. So in this step, it is very important to derive at a Rhythm (i.e., how long or short the notes are in succession to one another) that complements the hook.

The Rhythm isn't always solely the job of the drummer or percussionist; but rather it refers the "groove" or the "feel" of the beat and rhythm on our bodies or how our body responds to the movement of the music.

CREATE COLOR & MOOD
It's now time to enrich what you've come up with so far. The definitive way to do this is to add chords. You don't need fancy chords.
Step 3

In fact, do this: get a 6 sided dice and roll it 4 times while writing down each number in a sequence from left to right. If you get a repeat number on a roll you can choose to keep it or reroll. For this example, we rolled a 3, 5, 2, 6. In any scale, these numbers represent 6 of the 7 root chords: I, ii, iii, IV, V, VI, vii. The 7th chord is a diminished chord which we'll use only if we need to later.

So in the Key of C, based on the numbers we rolled, it goes like this: Em, G, Dm, Am. This is the birth of a really sad song based on the amount of minor chords there are versus major chords. But don't worry. We can make it sound great either way.

MAKE IT MOVE WITH THE GROOVE
Once the Hook (i.e., Topline Melody), Rhythm & Groove along with the Chords have been established, it's time to lay down a bass line.
Step 4

The bass line is usually the driving force that underlines the context because it lays a foundation for the Topline Melody, Rhythm and Chords to sit upon. The Bass line MUST hit precisely on beats and rhythm syncopations but should avoid syncopating on its own because it would create a lot of "blur" which loses its definition as the driving force. The exception to this rule is if the bass goes into a "solo" where it is the main attraction.

Believe it or not, the bass provides a lot of color to all chords. Think of the bass as the Sunlight that makes the beautiful flowers and plants gleam with life. For example, play this chord progression in root position on a keyboard Am, G, F, F, Am, G, F, F. Listen to how this very same chord progression sounds now when you underline it with theese bass notes F, E, D, G, F, E, D, G.

FILL THE DREAM WITH BEATS
There are many genres that are defined based on its drumline. What you do with drums will pretty much define your song's style of music.
Step 5

The drumline should complement the bassline. It is not necessary to have the kick drum hit every time the bassline hits; however, it will add emphasis to the notes that you want to highlight. The snare drum helps to enhance the rhythm while the hi-hats help keep things in alignment. Toms and crash cymbals add pizzazz to the piece when used as part of fills.

In EDM music, the kick drum sound (or sample used) should not interfere or clash with the bass sound as it could cause an undesirable "rumble" resembling a note being out of tune with the rest of the notes. If you want your kick to have some "pow" when it lands on the same note as your bass note, consider using a shorter or snappy kick sound with a fast decay.
