EDM Before and After Mastering

In December, I wrote an electronic music track for a European music library looking for “fist-pumping” dance music with a “catchy hook” and “feel-good” vibe.

When it came to mastering, I paid close attention to the punch of the kick drum and the general presence of the top line and bass – much needed ingredients for exciting “big room” house music in the style of Avicii and Swedish House Mafia. I also tested the mix in mono, ensuring good compatibility with all smartphone and TV speakers.

Before and After Mastering: Leyla Daze (Electronic Music)

Leyla Daze makes experimental, genre-crossing dance bangers tagged ‘neopsychedelia’, ‘electronic’ and ‘dream pop’.

This week I mastered Leyla’s expertly crafted final mix of track ‘Greylaw Hiveless’. I made the drums and bass heavily pump and the top end more crisp and exciting.

Here’s a snippet of the track, before and after mastering (listen on the best sound system you have available to you):

Mastered version begins at 19 seconds

“Josh’s mastering process is detailed and professional– my track sounds so sparkly! Josh gave me very specific notes, and answered my questions with patience as I polished up my final mix. The track was elevated to a new level. Will definitely use Shirty Mastering again! “
