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

There is absolutely nothing ordinary about pop music, despite what many have you believe. Pop music has spawned an endless list of sub-genres, limited only by the wild creativity of the artist. One of these sub-genres that has permeated its way into the radiowaves all over the world is pop funk.

Funk music has always been a genre heavy on improvisation. Funk relies heavily on a continuous drum pattern to create a constant rhythmic drive and groove. Throw in the common calling cards of pop music like its repeated choruses and hooks and you’ve got a good starting point for a pop funk song.

In this video tutorial, we’ll show you how you can make your own pop funk beat right here 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!
