Metro Boomin's Drum Hack For Producing Hit Records

Metro Boomin's Drum Hack For Producing Hit Records - ProducerGrind

Late one night in the studio, I stumbled upon a Metro Boomin video, and let me tell you, it completely flipped the script on how I approach making beats.

Metro dropped some seriously simple yet game-changing advice:

When crafting beats, start with your drums first to secure a bounce.

It sounds straightforward, but the impact? Huge.


Some of Metro Boomin's most iconic tracks were built on this very principle. And he's clear—it's not about crafting some complex, over-the-top drum pattern. Nah, it's about laying down a solid foundation with a bounce that's undeniable and guaranteed to get people moving.

Here's the deal: Once you've nailed that bounce, the rest is just icing. You can layer in your melodic elements, play with samples, and really start to bring your track to life.

And on those days when inspiration is playing hard to get? This method is a lifeline. It's your starting block for creativity.

So, next time you're in the lab, ready to cook up, take Metro's advice: Kick things off with those drums. It's a straightforward tweak to your process that could lead to your next big hit.
