If you’ve ever wondered how to make music like Purple Disco Machine or other House Music artists, this will give you an insight into how to achieve similar results.

International DJ, producer and remixer Tino Piontek aka Purple Disco Machine has been on a whirlwind of a musical journey since the 2009 conception of his highly successful disco house music project.

The Dresden-born artist has racked up numerous achievements, although it was his 2013 breakthrough hit ‘My House’, on OFF Recordings, that really propelled Purple Disco Machine into new heights; landing the #1 spot within Beatport’s deep house chart and, at its peak, #3 overall. The track remains one of Beatport’s best ever sellers and Purple Disco Machine now ranks #2 in the online retailer’s all-time Top 100 Artists chart.

After that initial success, the German producer continued to recreate his previous chart domination with a series of original tracks including; his collaborations with Boris Dlugosch on Defected, ‘L.O.V.E.’ and ‘Set It Out’, his collaborations with Aeroplane on Spinnin’ Deep, ‘Sambal’ and ‘Counting On Me’ featuring Aloe Blacc, plus his incredible double Pete Tong Essential New Tunes, ‘Yo’ on Kittball and the unforgettable ‘Magic’ on Exploited.

This isn’t only a tutorial on how to make House Music in Ableton Live, though…you can use the same methods in FL Studio or Logic X, to produce your own House Music in the style of Purple Disco Machine.
