The Beatport Sound

Post by MlclmDXXX » Mon Jun 15, 2015 5:48 pm

I'm new to production and see this forum as the lodestar for house/techno. I commonly hear about the "Beatport top 10" sound and would like to avoid making it, playing it, or generally being involved with it. I have my own idea about what it is everyone refers to, but would like to hear from the horse's mouth.

as much as i hate certain music, i still think you should produce whatever you like.

as for "Beatport Sound" its obviously not a technical term, that someone could describe to you exactly.

i think it mostly refers to tracks that are made with certain sounds that are mostly used in huge commercial productions. additionally if your track follows too much a certain formular.

for example this is a mashup of beatport tracks who sound all the same



you could do something similar with "deep house" or "minimal" on beatport.

Speak for yourself.

Overproduced formulaic cheesy sh!t that is made with tanning salons in mind.

It's pretty self-explanatory, really... https://pro.beatport.com/top-100

OK, so it's more EDM rubbish than the stuff I necessarily thought. I heard Breton mention that Mr G has Beatport-ish tunes. Would love to know which ones he thinks are that!

It's a little bit sad.

There's the cheesy EDM 'beatport top 10' sound, but there's also the 'beatport tech house' sound which I think breton talks about. I couldn't describe it or show examples for you though.
Get busy listenin', or get busy dyin'.
