    Are you talking about getting the tension right in the build to a drop or the actual drop itself?

    the drop itself, i was looking for videos on youtube and stuff to try figure it out properly so i think iv mixed it up and am unsure of how to do it properly

    I had a listen to some of your stuff there. None of your tracks have a very hard kick so I don't think big drops would really suit (if that's what you're after of course). A huge drop doesn't have to have everything going off at once. Take the new release from Spinnin Records for example. The drop (1.15) is just a kick and a synth but it's the power of the elements that make you go 'whoa!'


    Then you have the epic buildup like in Underworld - Rez. The tesion is building for over 2 minutes until that glorious kick drops at 2.30. Two different styles entirely but each as effective as the other.
