For this music production tutorial, we were joined by an extra special guest, DJ Slavine, to demonstrate how to make one of the most important sounds in electronic music today – the donk.
If you’re not familiar with donk, it’s a high-octane subgenre of house music, also known as hard bounce or bouncy techno, that originated in the north of England and was popularised by The Blackout Crew’s legendary track, ‘Put A Donk On It‘. Follow on below to find out how you can start making your own blistering donks. Plus, we’ve launched a new Intro to Donk music production module which will be lead by non-other than our new lecturer, DJ Slavine. To find out more about our music production courses, head here.
During the video, DJ Slavine takes us through how to make the perfect donk using Ableton Live’s inbuilt plugins. A fun fact about this donk is that it’s actually the same one Ski created in his Calvin Harris feat. Dua Lipa ‘One Kiss’ deconstruction video. Be sure to stick around until the end of the video where Slavine demonstrates how you can use this highly-sought-after sound across a range of musical styles.
