I used to get stuck when it came to this part of beatmaking. If you’re in the moment and creating quickly you’ll probably end up with a lot, if not all of your instruments in the same pattern. Now it’s time for structure!
My favorite, and fastest way to structure is to separate every sound into their own patterns. After they’re separated, I duplicate all of the patterns through out the playlist for about 2 min to get a good layout started.
I’ll start with the intro and work my way through the beat taking out patterns wherever they sound right.
A good rule of thumb is to switch it up every 4 bars. There’s not a set structure you should go by but, most beats / songs start with a short intro, verse, chorus, verse etc.

Nothing brings me more closer to the rules of the 80’s more than remixing. Labels use to have a simple rule, forget about what sells, but bring something crazy and fresh, bold and unique and let’s see what sells.
Compared to today’s competition being everyone trying to do the best version of a song using the same #808 snare and vocal style we had the beautiful differences between The Communards’s - Don't Leave Me This Way, Europe’s The Final Countdown - Bangle’s ‘Manic Monday’, Lionel Richie’s - Dancing On The Ceiling. All in the same year.
No rules just daring to be different. The music industry desperately needs this fearless approach to uniqueness by upcoming artists, while those who don’t even know the notes of a D#m Chord should stop promoting themselves as producer and get busy studying their craft to become a pioneer in the field of their own uniqueness. Be the next Ultravox and deliver your own ‘Vienna’! #newmusic#remix#djinn#djinnmusic#zanamessiamusic#justathought#studio#electronica#edm#vocals#miniblog
