Learn How to Make A Punchy Psytrance Drop with Faustix (Mad Decent / Monstercat)

We’re back with Danish DJ and Producer Faustix for another tutorial video, this time looking at how to make a punchy psytrance drop. Faustix is a force to be reckoned with in the dance music scene, with his ground-shaking releases on labels like Mad Decent, Monstercat, EPIC Records, Atlantic Records and more. Real name Morten Brangstrup Olsen Hansen, he has worked with the likes of Diplo and Major Lazor and shows no signs of slowing down. If you’d like to learn more about how DAWs like Logic and Ableton work, why not check out our popular Intro to Music Production course which covers both.

During the video, Faustix fires up the project of one of his big, show-opening festival tracks, ‘The Brakeoff’, and reveals exactly how he creates atmospheric psytrance that packs a punch. He shows how he chops and pitches his vocals for maximum swing as well as how he goes about constructing one of his epic drops. Most importantly, Faustix shares his key tips on how to get that huge punchy psytrance kick, layering your elements and more.
