Prior Experience with FL Studio Highly Suggested. If you've taken my free "How To Make Your First EDM Track" course, you have the prerequisite knowledge needed to take this one.

Learn how to make an EDM track (specifically progressive house) like Martin Garrix from EDM ghost producer Colin Warn. 

Having sold thousands of dollars in ghost productions, and having made over 200+ tracks, this kid who likes to write about himself in the third person will teach you:

  • How to start and finish a Martin-Garrix style track
  • How to beef up a wimpy sound by using distortion
  • How to create your own reverse piano sound effects
  • How to create your own supersaw sounds using built-in FL Studio synths
  • How to mix and master using free or built-in plugins
  • How to make a Martin-esque melody

...and much more!

The first 1/4 of the course is open as a preview to anyone interested: So go ahead and try it before you buy it.

Hope to see you in the classroom.

Who is the target audience?
  • Producers interested in creating a Martin-Garrix-esque track
  • Producers with some experience looking to up their production game
  • Producers interested in creating a track using only free plugins/samples

Music Producer, Ghost Producer, Composing 1-2 Tracks a Week

Colin Warn is a dance music producer and a Middle8Studio ghost producer, hailing from Seattle.  For some reason he also enjoys talking about himself in the third person.

Alter ego DJ Veaux. He's been teaching music production on forums from the legendary Laidback Luke production forums to the Max Vangeli "The Lab" forums for over four years.  His productions have received praise from the likes of Studio DMI, recording studio for artists like Diplo and Borgeous. He's made about 200+ tracks as of writing this bio from hip hop to dance music, and he continues to make 1-2 tracks a week.

Currently touring with Jordan Riley, so while he isn't on the road he's sitting down to figure out how he can help his fellow producer become the best artist they can be.
