"I didn’t always find it so easy to write club bangers. In fact, I used to find it just as hard to come up with good ideas and finish the tracks as you probably do now. But over the years I’ve perfected a method that makes it easy to write and finish huge club records, good enough to sign to labels, release on Beatport, stream on Spotify, and play to the biggest crowds. I'm excited to teach you everything I've learned, in this course."
James Hype
  • The best way to write huge club tracks, today - I've scored huge club hits over and over again, and I call it "doing less, really well". You'll come with me into my studio as we create a future hit together from scratch, going from nothing to a finished, signed track - JUST like my Beatport #1 bangers "Wild" and "Vibrate"!
  • My unique six-step songwriting method - Many producers struggle to turn a good idea into a finished track, but my six-step method changes all of that. This is a new, fast, revolutionary approach to writing club bangers, that simply works better
  • How I create huge drops and catchy hooks - You'll learn THREE ways to quickly come up with superior hooks and how to turn them into massive drops for your tracks, using both vocals and synths
  • The EXACT "mastering chain" I use - This is worth the price of the course alone. I have never revealed this to anyone, but here I show you the exact plugins I use, the order, the settings... everything about my "secret sauce" for making tracks as good as mine
  • How I use sample libraries to get started, fast - Nowadays there's no need to record vocalists, design synth patches, or even programme your drums - it often takes too long. Instead, I'll show you how to use libraries like Splice, but in creative and original ways so no-one knows your secret!
  • How to keep momentum when producing - I'll show you how to overcome procrastination by producing a initial, playable version of your tune really quickly - the best way to figure out where you need to put the rest of your effort in to finish fast, every time
"Across its 8 modules, 36 core lessons and 6 extra bonuses, James Hype's Club Banger Method is a unique, complete insight into how James produces, to help you produce in the same way, achieving similar results. It is unprecedented in the insight it gives into the method of one of the world's fastest-rising dance producers." - Phil Morse, course co-presenter
Inside The Course - Module Breakdown

Module 1

In this module, James introduces you to his six-step method, that will turn on its head everything you ever thought about how to make fantastic club tracks, fast! This is also where James checks in with you on the gear you'll need to do this (hint: it's much less than you might think), and the basic skills you need to be able to follow the course properly.

Module 2

This whole method is about "doing less, really well" - and the most important thing about any club track is definitely its hook. So how do you find a great one? It's easy when you know how, and James outlines three ways to find a hook - vocal or instrumental - using nothing more than a simple, everyday sample library like Splice or Loopmasters.

Module 3

Most producers go wrong by producing a few bars of music - four or eight - that sound great in a loop, but that are too far removed from a finished track to be able to easily progress. But by building both the build and the drop at once, you complete the most important part of the track upfront - and the rest becomes so much easier.

Module 4

Here are all the tricks for turning what you have so far into a full track of the correct length. You're already ahead thanks to having a build and drop prepared, and James shows you how to fast-track building the structure, then how to fill the track out with vocal samples and transitions so it starts to sound like the finished thing.

Module 5

We leave the production studio to go to James's decks, in his livestreaming studio, to give our first mix of our track a road test. James follows a specific process when doing this, which he calls "Look, Listen, Mix & Compare",  at the end of which it will be clear what the big things are that need doing next on our club banger.

Module 6

Armed with a list of what has to happen to turn what we've got into a finished club track, it's back to the studio to work on it: We'll fix the bass and the sonics, refine the structure of the track, and add all the embellishments that are needed to move our track from our first mix, to one which contains all the elements we need to move to mixing.

Module 7

Want to know the exact plugins, order, and settings James uses in his "mastering chain"? It's the secret sauce that makes his tracks sound so loud and exciting, and he reveals everything here. He also shows you every knob turn, button click and fader movement inside his DAW as he performs the full mixdown and mastering process, making the track sound 100% finished and world class.

Module 8

We don't stop there. Want to know how to turn a five-minute club mix into a streaming/radio edit? It's just one of six bonus lessons. Other lessons include how James made Beatport #1s such as "Wild" and "Vibrate", lots of examples of other songs made from sample library sounds, and the real world stories behind several more of James's global hits.

Module 9

Since the original filming of this course, James has had many huge global club smashes, including "Ferrari", which crossed over from being played in clubs to topping charts worldwide with more than 1 billion streams. In this module James explains the stories of both of those tracks, and even gives us a sneak peek inside the Ableton Live projects for them.

James's star is on the rise... learn his secrets while you can! 

James smashed into the Top 101 Producers of 2022 at number 6 - here's what he said when he got the news... 
"This one means a lot to me! I used to be a resident DJ and I worked every night in the clubs, I had the days to myself and I messed around doing all sorts with my time, making prank YouTube videos, trying to be a club promoter etc. til one day I discovered Ableton and it was like I’d found the other half of my DJ calling. 

I spent every day making stuff, starting with mashups and bootlegs and then making original music and playing it all at night in the club. I learn new things every day when I produce, I’ll do it til I die. Very proud to be up here with the greats as one of the biggest producers in dance music ❤️🙏🏻
Thanks for playing the music I hear in my head.
Don't have Ableton? No problem...
In this course, James uses industry-standard production software, Ableton Live - although his techniques will work in FL Studio, Logic Pro, whatever you're comfortable with.

Worth knowing, though, that you can currently get Ableton Live Suite free for 30 days from the Ableton website - and, as a Digital DJ Tips student, you get an exclusive 25% off any version of Ableton Live, which could save you up to $150!
Want your tracks "mastered" to pro quality? We got you...
As a student, you get 12 months free track mastering from online mastering tool Tunebat, worth over $100 included FREE with this course!

Mastering your music properly makes your track sound great on every speaker, and Tunebat uses "reference mastering" to match your music with the music that you want your track to sound like!

You feel like a failure, because you never seem to finish any of your tracks
James has been there! But nowadays, he is one of the most prolific producers out there, producing successful track after successful track. He manages to do all of this while also touring the world as a DJ, and running his own record label. How? Because he discovered a method for making tracks quickly and consistently that just plain works. His "momentum first" and "test and refine" approach will change the way you make tracks, and you'll soon be finishing them fast, just like him.

You're frustrated because your music never sounds as good as the tracks you admire
This is a deep-dive course, where you get to see literally every single one of the thousands of decisions James makes from the start of a track, to handing the finished master to an eager record label, ready for release. You'll learn exactly how to shape every sound and to mix your track like a pro, using your favourite existing tracks as a comparison, guaranteeing your songs will sound as good as those!

You're tired of tedious, out-of-date training, and want to know how club bangers are really made
Pretty much everything you may or may not think you know about how huge club tracks are made today is at best outdated, and at worst, just plain wrong. This is how huge club tracks are REALLY made, right now, by a world-class producer at the top of his game - and you're about to learn all the secrets.

You’re interested in learning the truth behind what it’s like to be an A-list club producer
We had unprecedented access to James's personal recording studio, and his livestream studio, for a "fly on the wall" week of filming. You get countless behind-the-scenes insights, asides and reveals, as James lets his guard down and shares stories, ups and downs, and deep truths about what it's really like to be an A-list producer and DJ. It's a fan's dream...
With over 308 skills taught and 14 hours of lessons, James doesn't hold anything back. Here's just a taster of the techniques, skills and tricks you're about to learn...
  • How to use science to build killer basslines - You'll learn the exact frequency range your bassline has to fall within in order to work in a club track, and then how to design a suitable bass sound in a synth, including finding and using patches and adding modulation, before learning how to write a bassline and fill it out with extra notes, sounds and sub-bass
  • How to write incredible drums and percussion - Learn every trick for programming classic TR-909 club drums, how to develop your drums with pre-made audio loops and extra Midi patterns, how to add self-recorded samples to make your loops unique... every trick to make your drums exciting throughout every track
  • How to work with automation - Learn how to automate practically all elements of sounds such as velocity, sustain, volume, reverb, sidechain, delay, filters and pan, then how to cut and paste, copy, consolidate and manage all of your automation as the track develops  
  • How to use plugins like a pro - James show you the exact plugins he uses, from multiband compressors and limiters to various sidechains (parallel, multiband), volume shapers, distortion, EQ (adaptive, midside), gates and vinyl effects. James explains why he uses each one, shows you his settings, and gives alternatives based on what is supplied with Ableton
  • How to manage projects in a DAW - How to arrange your workspace and add track section markers, how to preserve processor capacity by "bouncing" and "freezing" tracks, how to dynamically number and colour your tracks to stay organised, how to consolidate and tidy up Midi clips...
  • How to be your own mix engineer - Learn how to bounce your project to audio for mixdown, how to work with track groups (including "groups within groups") how to build a "mastering chain" with saturation, distortion and reverb, and tricks for adding parallel bus compression at the end of a project, before prepping and outputting a finished track
  • Using Midi to make writing catchy hooks easy - Learn creative tricks including slicing up notes in multi-note samples, how to warp notes to maintain their lengths in riffs, how to manipulate Midi by varying start/end points and reversing clips to trigger creativity, and how to experiment with your hook's key (two methods) to get the right "feel"
  • How to choose the right kick for your bassline - The kick is a hugely important part of any club banger, so you'll learn how to choose a suitable "in key" kick, how to use your DAW's sampler in a Midi track to manipulate your kick, and how to sidechain your hook and bassline to your new kick to create an irresistible groove for your track
  • How to add "audio candy" to make your tracks sound polished - James shows you countless ways to make your tracks sound, in his words, "expensive": You'll learn how to design, add, and manipulate essential extras elements such as crashes, strings, ambient samples, snares, claps, reversed FX, and many more
  • How to come up with great vocals (without a vocalist) - Not only from sample services, but also by recording background conversations on nothing more than a smartphone in order to twist them beyond recognition for both vocal hooks and exciting percussion sounds
  • How to A/B test against other tracks - This is one of the best ways to both save a ton of time and ensure your track sounds as it should; you'll learn how to choose tracks to A/B test with, how to set them up so you can switch easily, and what to look and listen for when testing
  • Countless more pro production techniques and tips - How to build risers, how to randomise effects with LFOs, how to detune sounds, how and why to resample, how to use different warp modes, how to "read" waveforms, how to spot and deal with phasing, when to use mono vs stereo elements, how to use send/returns, and much more... 
"What will I learn from this course? Is it a DJ course?"
This is a production course, not a DJ course. You’ll learn exactly how James Hype produces the club tracks he plays in his sets, and he'll show you every step of the process as he writes, in real time, a finished club track. James doesn't only do this, he stops to explain every single step of his process, so you understand why he makes the decisions he does throughout. By the end of the course, you'll not only understand what goes into writing club bangers today, but have picked up countless production techniques, mindset hacks and shortcuts to help you do it yourself.
"I don’t have a pro set-up like James, can I still do this?"
Yes. While this is filmed in James's studio, you don't need a studio to make music like this. The minimum you need is a laptop and a copy of your DAW of choice (we recommend Ableton Live, although you can follow the course using any DAW). You'll need as a minimum a set of good headphones, and optionally, an audio interface and a good pair of studio monitors. Everything else is done on the computer, so you don't need any other equipment.
"I am new to producing. Will this course be too complicated for me?"
This is not for complete beginners. It assumes you know your way around your DAW and have at least dabbled in making music before. James holds nothing back: This is how a pro at the very top of their game makes big club records, today, and it definitely gets technical in places. That said, if you're serious about doing this, and are prepared to ask questions of your tutors and put in extra work to get up to speed in areas where you need to brush up on basics, there's no reason why you can't follow the course.
"Will I be locked into any payments, or do I have to do this in a certain timeframe?"
No to both! The price you pay is the full price of the course - that’s it. No subscriptions, no further payments. The complete course, yours. What’s more, it’s yours for life, including any future upgrades. Start today, tomorrow, next year. Come back as often as you want, whenever you want. Take as long as you want to finish it. We’ll always be here to help you, whenever that may be. Buy today to lock in this price.

James is a much-loved teacher here at Digital DJ Tips. Here's what some of his previous students have to say about his courses...
There are many choices out there for people wanting to learn DJ skills, from free YouTube videos, all the way up to university courses that demand years of commitment. So why do so many people choose Digital DJ Tips? Here are three big reasons... 


As well as being an authoritative, respected and globally recognised and Serato certified DJ school, has since 2010 grown to be one of the biggest DJ tech websites in the world, with 250,000 unique visitors a month, and established and popular YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels with over 750,000 followers and we have a popular weekly live DJ TV show, which is watched by as many as 25,000 DJs each episode. We also wrote the book on DJing, "Rock The Dancefloor!" by Phil Morse (an Amazon bestseller). We are right where it's happening.


Since we delivered our very first course in 2011, we've put high quality teaching at the heart of what we do. We have a proven system for teaching that's not only clear so beginners can easily follow along, but also thorough, taking students as far as they want to go, right to pro level. We prefer action over theory, and showing over telling, and we understand that coaching is just as important as information - in fact, information on its own is rarely enough! We also understand that our students have limited time, so all our training is designed to get you results fast, and fit around your busy life.


Online DJ training is unfortunately a bit of a "Wild West". But unlike many of the operations  out there, when you join us, you get much more than just a username and a password. We have a full-time team to make sure you're looked after, and we take our duty of care for you seriously.  All courses have in-course tutor help, right on tap. And if you ever need any extra help, with anything from technical stuff to billing enquiries, know that two of our team members are dedicated only to customer support. And of course, with our StudentHub and StudentLive community, you get to participate in the biggest DJ school student network anywhere in the world.

Just like with all of our DJ training, James Hype's Club Banger Method comes with our cast-iron, no questions, 12 month money-back guarantee, which gives you more than enough time to get the results or get your money back - the risk is all ours. 

If at any time in your first year of ownership you decide it's not for you (for absolutely any reason), just tell us and we'll refund you with a smile. Nobody else offers a guarantee like this.
