Sidechaining is a main componenent of a lot of the dance, electronic & pop music that has been coming out over the past few years.  Today, AfroDJMac shows you how get it popping in this awesome tutorial!

Hello, this is New York-based producer, songwriter, guitarist, and live electronic musician AfroDJMac.  I like to describe my music as being futuristic yet nostalgic: it’s a blend of indie rock, electronica, glitch, and chip tunes, all wrapped up into catchy, fun, and sometimes introspective songs.  It’s music that is great for a party, yet has another layer — perfect for a night alone contemplating life’s larger questions.

I’m excited to write for SonicScoop to share some of the knowledge that I‘ve picked up along the way. For my big debut, let’s take a look at the dark art of sidechaining.
