How to make a disco house beat

Watch our video tutorial on how you can make a disco house beat right here on BandLab’s free web Mix Editor.

Disco dominated the charts in the 70s but by the turn of the decade, it was nose-diving out of fashion at a rate of knots. But it wasn’t the end of the road for disco music. Disco music saw itself reinvented by a group of DJs and music producers in Chicago. And they called it house music.

Many DJs would take disco classics and remix them – adding percussion breaks, changing tempos, rearranging sections. At this period, technology like samplers and drum machines were becoming accessible to the layman, creating a wave of bedroom producers and amateur DJs in the scene. Those classic disco records were given a new lease of life, this time with hard-hitting electronic drum machines and synthesizers forming the backdrop.

In this video tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a disco house beat from scratch on BandLab. Our web-based DAW, the Mix Editor, is completely free and has all the tools you need to start making great music. All you need is your browser!
