At our recent INPUT: Drum Production Masterclass event we were treated to a run-through of the bass-heavy production techniques, drum layering, reverb processing and more behind Chro – the latest tune by local duo Cliques (George Nicholas & Hamish Dixon) on Aquatic Lab Records

Listen to the tune (speakers or headphones require for the bass!) then watch as George Nicholas fires up the Ableton Live Set and explains the production techniques behind it.

George and fellow Liveschool trainer Hamish Dixon are Cliques and their tune Chro is out now on Aquatic Lab records via iTunes or on 12″ vinyl at Juno.

If you’re thinking George looks familiar, he’s also a member of Seekae (Future Classic) who presented at INPUT last year on live performance techniques.
