The Chainsmokers are easily one of the most popular and successful EDM groups of all time, with multiple hits around the world, and even a Grammy award. Their combination of pop and dance music has been a trendsetting theme for popular music as a whole.
In this course we start at the beginning of the track, and create the entire song from intro to drop. We go over every detail to make sure you understand exactly the types of sounds and techniques The Chainsmokers like to use in their songs.

Creating the breakdown and build: For our breakdown and build, we talk about how to build suspense in pop music without overusing build elements and making the buildup too busy. One plugin we use is Endless Smile by Dada Life, which is an easy way to subtly build suspense without going overboard.
The Drop and finishing touches: Finally, the drop. We go over the types of stabby chords The Chainsmokers like to use in their songs as well as how to use the melody to give your drop a lot of "bounce." We also go over what kind of drums/drum patterns The Chainsmokers like to use, and finally we polish up our track so it is ready to be heard.
