“Black Label” (Metalheadz) DAW walkthrough [VIDEO]

Let me tell and show you a bit about how to make that Metalheadz sound.
I’m requested song walkthrough videos all the time, but honestly they do take quite a bit of time, but I’ve got something special for you today.
A 70-minute DAW walkthrough video.
This is 100% Patreon exclusive and NOT available anywhere else.
If you haven’t joined my mixing-and-production-focused Patreon yet, now’d be a good time (got a nice community of 120 members and growing).
I’m covering everything relating to the song: breaks, bass, processing, what in my opinion makes for a Metalheadz song, importance of different song sections, contrast…everything that makes for a song in general and what to take into account…a bit of music philosophy, too, which isn’t covered much.
Song walkthroughs have been heavily requested – I hope you guys like this one!

Reference songs for producing/mixing/mastering

As a mixing and mastering engineer, I’m often asked about good reference songs, so I did a FREE post on my Patreon listing some refs I use often with some most popular genres (DNB, house, hip hop, trap, techno):

Later this month I’ll be doing two EXCLUSIVE videos:
1) how to reference efficiently and
2) how to set up your own mastering project in your DAW.

About success

I wrote a response to a producer who said he was feeling jealous towards some of his friends who are now enjoying decent success while they haven’t been in the game as long as he is. Thought I’d share.
