    Wrong forum mate. You'l get a much better response in the production section.

    sounds daft but take your favourite record and copy the structure but use your own sounds ... do this a few amounts of time with sounds your working on until u have the confidence n understanding of structuring what sounds your using ... have fun ... dont take music to serious and enjoy sharing what u make ..

    yeah man referencing with other music is a great way to understanding the structure of a tune. Don't bother with sounds or samples if they just annoy you after listening to them for any amount of time, it's only gonna work if you can listen to it for hours on end without it getting on your tits! And like panty inspector quite rightly says just enjoy it!

    Dance music is all about effects too, without effects nothing will roll (probably a huge generalisation) but you just gotta experiment with different things like effects and eq's till it sounds right- swat it up mate it's the only way!
