How do you produce a soul beat from scratch on BandLab? Read on to find out.

Soul is a form of music that never went away. Today, you can find countless music styles which trace their roots to soul – pop, rock, funk, hip hop are just a few. Just like many of these genres today, soul actually incorporated elements of African-American gospel, jazz and blues. Soul music dominated the charts in 50s and 60s, made popular by familiar names like James Brown, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding.

Because of its gospel origins, catchy rhythms and handclaps were early characteristics of soul music. Even the call and response between the lead vocals and chorus drew inspiration from gospel.

Today we’ll show you how you can recreate a classic soul beat right here on BandLab’s free web Mix Editor.

Fork the soul beat we created in the video tutorial below. You can use this beat as the baseline to produce your very own soul track!
