About Dance Music Production

Why DMP?

You’ve spent too many hours trawling YouTube without finding what you need.

You’ve wasted money on tutorials with no substance.

You’re sick of the misinformation all over the internet.

Sound familiar? DMP can help.

We don’t skim over the surface, offer inaccurate or incomplete information and we don’t pretend to reveal the ‘secrets’ of dance music – that’s nothing more than an overused sales pitch. But as you’ve no doubt come to realise, there’s more to producing dance music than following some superficial tutorial about throwing in pre-prepared samples, tweaking presets and relying on your sequencers free plug-ins to produce a professional track.

"DMP has completely revolutionised the way I think about and make music. In under 12 months I’ve had 8 tunes signed up and had tracks played out by the likes of Hernan Catteneo and Guy Mantzer. This stuff is the f*cking nuts" - Richard Bailey

Established in 2003, our tutorials stand apart by revealing how professional dance music is really produced. With over 25 years experience in this specialist field our mission is simple; ‘cut the crap’ and focus on showing you the real world, vital practices that are quite simply a requirement for producing today’s dance music.

"I’ve been trying to get signed for 2 years, after watching lots of videos and reading a couple of books my skills did not improve rather declined because I got confused by all those commercial videos and books which just wasted my money and time.

Then by accident I saw DMM 2nd edition on web and I bought it, after reading it i bought 5 tutorials. I bought all the tools you used, I opened my sequencer and made 2 tracks. I sent them to the record label which didn’t even answer me before for my previouse demos, they answered in less than 24hours, they were so surprised they couldn't believe I was a newcomer, they signed me for my release plus 3 of my future releases with a good royalty fee and 50 percent of all the earnings." - Majid.R
