How to make a nu-disco track in 10 minutes

Working under a time constraint when making music can be a great way to hone your workflow and build confidence in your creative decisions.

In the video above, we took this idea to the test by constructing a nu-disco track in under 10 minutes. Check it out to see how you can quickly construct the crisp drums, groovy basslines, synth stabs, and other elements that are unique to the genre.

If you liked the track we created and want to experiment with the individual sounds yourself, you can check out the Collection we created here. If you end up making your own track under a time constraint – whether it’s nu-disco or something completely different – feel free to share your work in the comments section of our most recent Songwriting Club prompt.

What other genres do you want to see us tackle in 10 minutes or less? Let us know in the comments below, and check out our other 10-minute challenges here.
