You can use energy splashes as markers or as turnarounds in your tracks! We look at the 4 magic ingredients for a good splash: 1) a good source sound, 2) enormous reverb, 3) stable volume with OTT, and 4) subtle LFO pumping.
As a bonus tip, I show how such a reversed energy splash can become a speeding up riser. All of this contributes to tension & release, core skills for any producer!
Oh, and the song is a bootleg techno remix of Juriji Der Klee’s XIXI 😂(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOkbvZ9y3-M )
