Underground Dance Music Production

About Eric

After a near 5 year break from music, I got back into it and within 2 short years produced over a dozen tracks appearing on labels like New York's Nervous Records and won Victor Calderone's Remix contest that was hosted on Play.Beatport.

I love showing others how to make great, dance floor ready tracks with the gear and software they have right now. You don't need to know 417 things about production, you just need to master a few critical things. Let me show you what they are. Sign up on this page.
