Remaking most popular beats is a great way to challenge yourself. It’s one of the methods I used back then to develop my beat making skills. Fortunately, it worked great for me.
So, what I’m saying is instead of spending too much time on trying to come up with your beat’s concept. It’s easier to remake others beats and see if you are good enough. As for your own original beats, don’t worry you’ll get to that as soon as you’re good enough.
Test your skills out and remake a song you hear on the radio. Put yourself in the music producer’s head and figure out how they got a certain sound and feeling that made that song good. In the long run, this will make you more versatile, because when an music artist asks for a music producer’s type of sound, you will be able to provide them with something similar, but add your own twist to it.
