Creating “Dance” tracks

A customer contacted me and asked if the Johnny Cash song “Ring of fire” would be suitable to be made in to a “Dance” track? Sadly the answer was “no”.

Here’s why (plus a rough guide to the types of songs that will work as dance tracks and those that won’t)….

Most songs CAN be made in to great floor-thumping dance tracks, but many cannot.

This is because generally dance tracks need to be between 120 to 140 beats per minute tempo and need to be made up with a “4 in the bar” type of rhythm. So, any song which already has an original tempo of 120 to 140 beats per minute (and has a 4 in the bar rhythm) WILL work as a dance track.

Unfortunately a song like “Ring of fire” is a “2 in the bar” type tempo and shuffles along at around 178 beats per minute – which just isn’t suitable for fitting in to a dance track type of timing.

However, what many people don’t realise is that slow songs of only 60 – 70 beats per minute can actually work fine as dance tracks because their tempo can be “doubled” to make them fit a dance beat (as long as they have 4 in the bar rhythm). Examples of this is our dance track versions of “If tomorrow never comes” and Titanics “My heart will go on

As always, if in doubt about any song you would like us to create as a dance track, just ask!

Putting a band together

Here’s an email I received from a customer asking about forming a band and using backing tracks:

Hi Kenny 
Just a stupid question… I want to start a music band of my
own but im nervous for the auditions. 
I would like to start
a r&b or rock band but dont know how to go about it.
Can
I use backing tracks for this purposes as well and can I
remix them?
Ronald

Hi Ronald

Don’t worry, there are no stupid questions in the world – only questions
you don’t have the answer to yet!

It’s always best to try to find band members who are “on the same
wavelength” and are interested in the same type of music as you are
interested in, so will have the same passion for the music you play
together as a band.

If you put a full band together, there is no need for backing tracks
at all.

However, if you only put a part band together (eg drums, guitar and
bass) then you could use specially produced custom backing tracks
to give you the extra sounds your band can’t play like keyboards, brass,
strings, synths etc. See CLICK HERE“>http://www.mp3backingtrax.com/customtrax.htm”>CLICK HERE
for more info).

When it comes to remixing backing tracks, you cannot remix audio
backing tracks yourself but you can remix midifle backing tracks
yourself so if you want to do the remixes yourself, buy midifiles, and
if you want us to do the remixes, order custom made backing tracks
