ELEVATOR ARTIST SPOTLIGHT - DUVZ (SOMA RECORDS)

For our first Elevator Artist feature, we are shining the spotlight on Duvz, a DJ/Producer from Dublin who broke onto the international stage after winning the Soma Records x Splice Producer Challenge in 2019.

DRUM RACKS & VINTAGE ROLAND DRUM MACHINES

Ableton Drum Racks come loaded with a collection of pre-set drum kits which are modelled on classic Roland Drum Machines such as the TR-606, TR-707, TR-808 and TR-909, all of which were hugely influential and set the foundations of modern electronic music.

PRODUCING & PROGRAMMING HI-HATS

It is essential that you get your hi-hats correct, use good source content, EQ like a pro and know what Ableton plugins to use to add presence. To get the dance floor going, your hi-hats need to pop.

RHYTHM PROGRAMMING & PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES

It is always worth exploring programming drums and percussion in more depth. Producers can focus on rhythm programming using polyrhythms and additive rhythms to create an interesting and evolving rhythm section.

OVERCOMING WRITERS BLOCK

It happens to the best of us. Producers sit down in their studio and for some reason, they just cannot formulate any ideas or they formulate ideas that are not up to their personal standard. It can be frustrating, demotivating and is completely normal.
