Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding are stars in their own right and do not need a collaboration to boost a faulting career. But the duo from 'I Need Your Love' have teamed up again for another amazing poppy track. Outside is currently storming charts worldwide. And for a reason. Calvin's plucky synth sounds and Ellie's whispering voice are a combination made in heaven.
I promised Roxanne not to mention her brother and EDM star Gareth Emery in this article. Sh*t, too late. Sorry Roxanne, but I will make it up to you. The matter of fact is, Roxanne is a star in her own right and posesses one of the most enchanting, powerful and warm voices I have ever come across in the world of EDM. The timbre of her voice is truly unique. And what really gives me goosebumps is the vibration in her voice, most prominently on tracks like Dash Berlin's Shelter and Gareth Emery's Soldier (sorry for mentioning your big bro again Roxanne).
One thing that many music video's have in common is that they often feature beautiful, scantily clad girls. Well, that applies to EDM video's at least. I have yet to spot them in classical concerts on YouTube. It is all part of the attraction I guess. But one thing is being casted to look gorgeous and run around in bikini or underwear, another is being filmed during a dance party/event and then - some time later - find your pretty party face in an official music video.

NOTE: Midi file of Animals included! If we had written this post one year ago you would probably have said 'Who the fuck is Martin Garrix?!' Indeed, until his monster hit Animals Martin Garrix was simply unknown to the public. And why should his name have rung a bell? The boy is only 17 years old and if it were not for his recent success with Animals he would probably play videogames with his friends, run around on a muddy soccer field and chase girls.

Hocketing is a technique where the same melodic line is split between multiple instruments (or voices), such that alternately one instrument sounds while the others rest. This technique dates back to the 13th and 14th century when it was primarily used in vocal music. By employing hocketing we can create some truly interesting trance arpeggios.

It is not a secret that we at Midichords love chord progressions and you may have noticed that we have dedicated several tutorials to chord progressions and how they can be turned into arpeggios and other cool elements. In this article we will look at how Danish producer Jon Skarin uses a chord progression as the foundation for his production ‘Hymn of the Last Whale’.
