How to make a club tune like IKONIKA's 'Kicks Count'

The Hyperdub affiliate breaks down her track ‘Kicks Count’ 

In our latest How I Made video, IKONIKA breaks down how she made her club track ‘Kicks Count’. The track – from her latest ‘Bodies’ EP on Hyperdub – was created using Ableton Live and NI’s Maschine sampler and drum machine, which IKONIKA is a big user of. 

In our new series How I Made, aimed at beat-makers, producers and anyone who’s interested in making music, we sit down with producers to break down their tracks, solo different stems and show us how they write, program and mix. They also make an idea from scratch to show us their working process and how they develop beats and chords from empty projects.
