Indie Pop is an up and coming genre that’s slowly becoming mainstream over the past few years. Based around guitars, synths, raw drums and throwback sounds to the 80s, it’s a type of music that more and more artists and producers want to incorporate into their music these days.
Artists and bands like The 1975, CHVRCHES, M83, The Neighbourhood, HAIM, Maggie Rogers, are all examples of Indie Pop music today.
But unlike genres such as hip hop, rock, EDM or pop… there aren’t many resources out there to teach this specific genre of music.
The way you’d produce, arrange and mix a song for Indie Pop is completely different to most of the chart-topping songs you’d hear on Spotify these days.
There isn’t the huge low end and drums of hip hop, or the glossy sounds of pop - instead, it’s warm, raw, natural sounding… yet modern and fresh.
Even as a Grammy-nominated producer who’s worked with artists such as Jason Derulo, Sia, Kygo, Timbaland, and various others - it took me a few months to figure out how Indie Pop records are made today.
After months of diving deep into Indie Pop, I discovered there were 3 main styles of the genre today:
And by breaking down and dissecting the sounds of these various styles, a producer or artist could easily understand how to incorporate elements of Indie Pop into their music - regardless of what genre of music they make.
So if you’d like to discover production techniques that will help your music sound warmer, more powerful, while having that retro, throwback feel that makes your listeners feel familiar with your music even on the first listen…
This brand new Beat Academy course is for you.
I'm Ivan Corraliza, but in the music world I'm known as ill Factor.
I've been lucky to work with top artists such as Sia, Kygo, Justin Timberlake, Jessie J and many others.
As a Grammy-nominated producer, I created Beat Academy to teach musicians all over the world about music production and entering the music industry.
And I’m super excited to teach you how to produce Indie Pop today with my brand new course…
Producing Indie Pop is my all-comprehensive music production course that shows you the production techniques and tricks behind today’s best Indie Pop artists…
And how to produce Indie Pop yourself.
With 4 in-depth video modules, you’ll be walked through the entire production process of drums, synths, bass, guitars, vocals, as well as mixing for Indie Pop - in an easy-to-digest, content-packed course.
Before we get into the meat and potatoes of producing Indie Pop, it’s important to set the groundwork of mindsets and perspective to be a great producer.
In this module, you’ll be taught how to create the sounds found in the three types of Indie Pop music today:
Once you’re done with this module, you’ll know how to create drum tracks that grab your listener’s attention and have them grooving to your track seconds after they hit play.
Now that your track has its drums sorted, it’s time for you to start adding more musical elements to the production.
This module will show you how to produce the bass, guitar and synth sounds of Indie Pop.
This module is like a mini-encyclopedia of producing Indie Pop’s classic sounds. After going through Module 3, you’ll start to develop that crucial ability of being able to recreate sounds you hear, and turning sounds inside your head into a reality inside the production of your tracks.
This is the module where the entire course comes together, and you see me personally produce a track in the styles of Indie Pop taught in the previous modules.
You’ll see how I take the same melody and vocal and produce it in two completely different ways.
First, you’ll see me produce the track in the throwback Indie Pop style, with huge drums and a strong, pulsating synth production. This is where the rubber hits the road as you’ll see how the lessons taught previously all come together to create a track similar to M83, The Neighbourhood and CHVRCHES.
You’ll also see how I mix the drums, musical elements and vocals to come together in a cohesive, warm mix that sounds retro while having the sheen and polish of modern Indie Pop tracks.
Then, you’ll see me take that same track into a live drum, MGMT/HAIM influenced production where I use organic drum samples, alongside new synth parts to create a more raw, electronic mix.
Then, you’ll see how I take a track submitted by a Beat Academy member, and mix it specifically to fit the genre of Indie Pop.
If you’ve ever wondered how Indie Pop artists have tracks that somehow smooth, yet gritty and raw at the same time - this tutorial is for you.
As you can see, Producing Indie Pop will give you the tricks, techniques and understanding you need to start incorporating Indie Pop into your music.
I’ve created Beat Academy to teach aspiring artists and producers all over the world how to produce professional music without the high costs of going to a music college or audio school.

Far from it.
