How to Sound Like Marshmello - EDM Tips

How to Sound Like Marshmello


If you’re one of the two people who hasn’t heard of Marshmello, he’s a human sweet known for crafting beats (and wearing a big, white mask).

In this tutorial I show you how to make music like Marshmello (in 1 hour).

In the vid, I’m using my Ultimate EDM Speedwriting Cheat Sheet (which you can grab here).

We go into:
1. Arrangement
2. Composing Marshmello style chords and melody.
3. Marshmello style Sound Design

Remember, this isn’t about replicating another producer; it’s about learning structure and composition from existing tracks and developing your own, unique style.

Should I do more “in the style of” videos. If so, who would you like? Let me know what you think in the comments!
