'Finding Your Sound' - Live Webinar with Demuir
Posted By : Laura Holness

Posted Date : December 7th, 2020
On Sunday 13th December, we will be launching Mixtank's new webinar series with one of the scene's most respected and successful producers - Demuir.

To celebrate, we've got an exclusive Label Worx discount code which will save you 20% when you reserve your place at the session - just click HERE and use the code, FINDYOURSOUND20 at the checkout.

Demuir is an incredible teacher with releases on labels like Hot Creations, Defected and Desolat, and has prepared an exclusive interactive webinar where he will answer production questions and teach tried and tested techniques that will help you find your sound through an effective way of working that guarantees results.

We asked him a few questions about what you can expect from the live session so have a read then click HERE to reserve your seat!

First things first - can you share a bit of your background in production for those who may not be familiar with your work?


- 20 years in producing music from Hip Hop to Electronic Music
- I took 10 years off from music due to family life, job demands, and changes in the industry
- I'm mainly rooted in Electronic music and produce from House, Jacking House, Tech House, and Techno
- I've released on forward driving labels like Hot Creations, Desolat, Classic Music Company, I'm a House Gangster, Music For Freaks, and more

You're hosting an exclusive webinar via Mixtank on December 13th - why did you choose 'Finding Your Sound' as the title?

I chose this title because I believe it's the number one challenge for producers looking to distinguish themselves in a saturated industry. It's hard to stand out.

What are the most common mistakes that you see new producers making which could impact the way they make music?

- Not being open to understanding a different perspective that may help their growth
- Anchoring their value solely to what label they've released on vs. their artistry
- Sample pack-driven creativity without adding their own signature

From your experience, what is the most important part of the production process?

Capturing a feeling that you can lock into and building upon it

Can you share some of the things that you're going to be covering during the event?

We will be covering:

- Guiding Principles of Finding Your Sound
- Who, What, and How to Dig for Sounds
- Tools of Trade - Executing what you hear

And what would you hope is the main thing that attendees will learn that they can apply to their own productions?

My ultimate hope is that this webinar inspires/accelerates producers' trust in their sound more intuitively to create and give our industry a continuous set of fresh and boundary-pushing music.

How long has it taken you to perfect and develop the techniques and methods that you will be teaching during the webinar?

We are talking about 20 years of trial and error here all packaged into a process that has been working consistently for me since my return to professional music 10 years ago.

What equipment will you be using, and do attendees need to have access to anything to join in?

I suggest participants be prepared to take notes and come armed with questions

And finally, which part of the webinar are you most looking forward to?

I look forward to hearing people's experiences and observations when it comes to creating their own sound

Our Label Copy tool is something used by labels on a daily basis. This tool enables labels to quickly export label copy for a particular release or track. If you license your music to third parties you will have already realised how important this little feature has become. It is simple but it saves a lot of time!
