Break Beat / Acid House

Learn Break Beat / Acid House Music Producing with the Recording Connection

Acid house (along with its its subgenre, breakbeat) is the form of electronic music notably aligned with rave culture. Hailing from Chicago in the mid-1980s, this synthesizer-centric form of house music changed the world and music forever. If you are serious about a career as an acid house producer or DJ, you must learn the structure and science behind house music and all of its derivative forms: new beat, acid trance, techno, Goa trance and psychedelic trance.

The Recording Connection will train you in the minimalist production aesthetic: the 4/4 beat, the electronic squelch, sequencing and more. Are you ready to take this foundational genre to the next level? Are you ready to build upon the genius of producers such as 808 State, Kevin Saunderson, Mr. Lee, Mr. Egg, Humanoid, and The Shamen?

With our genre-specific electronic music apprenticeship (externship) course, an established acid house producer or DJ will teach you Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cubase and Reason so that you can be the next acid house or breakbeat sensation.
