How to make the bass, keys and pad sounds from Nina Kraviz 'I'm Gonna Get You' with DRC
The track title ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ could almost be a testament to Nina Kraviz’ dedication and determination to succeed as a house/techno DJ and producer, in an undeniably male dominated industry. Kraviz early adventures into dance music saw her managing dental records by day and vinyl records by night, as she studied dentistry in Moscow whilst holding down a Friday night club residency.
Released in 2010, ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ was one of Kraviz’ first tracks to make it outside of Russia, providing the exposure and publicity needed to make her mark on the international dance music scene. This was no easy task however, as Kraviz still had to fight hard to be taken seriously, speaking about this period of her career she says that ‘people were suspicious of a pretty woman making music on her own, with a vision.’
That ‘vision’ is one that involves passionate and energetic performances whilst behind the decks, often mistaken as being intoxicated, her wild enthusiasm shines through. ‘People think I’m on drugs, but I’m not – I’m just really experiencing it’.
In this week’s DRC Sound Design Tutorial we show you how to get the bass, keys and pad sounds for yourself from this funky little minimal track.
