Online dance music production learning platform FaderPro announces a partnership with Beatport this week, which will eventually see all their in-depth courses available to purchase through a dedicated page on the leading download store’s Beatport Sounds section. Rapidly becoming one of the foremost sites for aspiring producers, FaderPro offers the chance to purchase individual, artist-driven courses based around specific tracks and techniques for a fraction of the price of traditional, more rigidly structured production programs.

Mark Knight continues Toolroom Records’ partnership with a new course alongside D.Ramirez. UMEK is set to produce a techno masterclass, Rene Amesz, Eelke Kleijn & Funkagenda also deliver new courses all under the Toolroom Academy & FaderPro partnership as well. Other courses from the likes of Hauswerks,Tritonal, James Egbert, Flava D & Just Her as well as Third Son provide plenty of inspiration for producers of various shades of house, tech, EDM and beyond. U.K based legendary drum ‘n’ bass label, Hospital Records also joins with FaderPro to bring courses from their extensive back catalogue and future releases.
Existing courses consist of Roger Sanchez, Sander Kleinenberg, Harry Romero, Funkagenda, Dale Howard and production guru for the stars, Brian Matrix just to name a few. Solidifying FaderPro’s goal to being a one-stop for all genres in music production education, they’ve just signed on the worlds leading Psy-Trance label, Iboga Records.
“With Beatport being ‘the’ place to purchase the world’s best dance music and from the world’s best artists, it’s a perfect strategic partnership for us at FaderPro since we are teaching in-studio production courses around those same top artists that are selling their music at Beatport” says FaderPro co-founder Steven Lee. “It’s no secret how vital producing music is for achieving any sort of success in this industry and it’s no secret how significant the Beatport charts are in solidifying these producers’ success. We teach the very music they sell and with the talents that sell it so this is definitely a win-win for us and Beatport.”
Clark Warner, SVP Artist & Label Relations of Beatport commented: “Beatport remains committed to supporting the next generation of electronic music producers and creator culture at large. Adding FaderPro’s high-quality instructional videos to the Beatport Sounds catalog is a natural extension of this effort, and a welcome resource for new and veteran producers alike.”
FaderPro is fast becoming the leading player in online dance music production education.
FaderPro was launched in 2010 by DJ/Producer, Steven Lee – also known as Lee Cabrera and Grammy Board Member and multi-platinum producer Vincent di Pasquale (Madonna, Nelly Furtado, Mariah Carey). After a successful new round of investment in October of last year and a big splash at ADE and the adding of new partners & teammates its been non stop for this startup. Their ‘Watch. Learn. Become’ ethos combines high-quality video tutorials with access to some of the world’s biggest stars, plus partnerships with leading industry entities to give rising producers the best chance of success. Put simply, FaderPro offers the chance to learn how the best producers in the world make their music.
With a curriculum that’s derived from the proven success of the artists they work with – rather than from the mechanical layout of user manuals – their courses bring the art of production to life in vivid color. The platform offers 24/7, on-demand access to content, allowing students to work through the ‘a la carte’ courses at a pace that suits them and in any order – with a huge cost saving compared to traditional schools. It’s the perfect option for those who want to invest in their art, rather than sifting through endless low-quality YouTube tutorials with no cohesion or structure.
