DNB FOUNDATIONS

Accelerate the music production learning process with the world’s first – most comprehensive drum and bass training program.

How do some producers make pro-level drum and bass in less than a year of producing?

It’s not that they have a musical background.

It’s not that they have fancy production equipment.

And it’s definitely not because they’ve already accumulated 10,000 hours of practice.

Actually, it’s the complete opposite

As a new producer you think of your progress like this:

But in reality it's something like this:

You get a little bit of progress in the start.

This could be because you’ve seen a bunch of YouTube tutorials…

Or you’re buying new plugins and sample packs…

But shortly after, you plateau.

This is because you’re not translating the information into knowledge that will take you to the next level.

The solution?
Conscious Learning

Start by taking action with producing.

When you hit a roadblock, take the time to learn about that problem and solve it.

Repeat this process over again and your progress will end up looking like this:

Taking the time to learn new concepts and develop a skillset WHILE applying it to your music is what makes the difference. 

This way you will position yourself into a positive feedback loop of working smarter not harder.

Now the problem arises...

You’ve tried to browse the web in search of well-structured and comprehensive educational material only to find yourself back on YouTube.

While YouTube can be helpful, there is one big risk you’re taking: Bad education can waste your time and set you back months or even years.

On the other hand, the right education can fast-track the process and get you creating music that you’re proud of.
