Attention tech house producers using Ableton Live:
Learn The Tech House Production System You Need To Finish Professional Quality Tracks That Are Ready For Labels...
...without wasting thousands of dollars or years of frustration!
Sometimes, making music can suck.
Yes......it would be AWESOME to bang out tracks in a day.
Yes......it would be AWESOME if your tracks got signed the SECOND you sent them to the label.
But......it takes time to get to that level.
And the journey is often filled with frustration, rejection, failure, disappointment, depression, and a bunch of other crappy feelings.
The absolute WORST feeling is when you compare your tracks to professionals and think to yourself:
"I'm not even close.
And I don't know why."
Yeah, that hurts. But that’s just one of many frustrations we face while trying to improve the quality of our sound.
Do you relate to any of these as well…?
How Long does it take to break through?
I was stuck in this limbo phase for YEARS.
I was making small improvements here and there, but I couldn’t get my tracks to sound as good as professional releases.
Plus, several years ago, there was ZERO content out there on how to make house music. So...
There was really only
ONE WAY to learn.
I had to confront the problem head on...
And spend every spare second reverse engineering and analyzing professional tracks.
I knew there was a GAP between my tracks and the references — I could HEAR it. But my ears weren’t good enough to identify exactly where I was going wrong.
But slowly, after thousands of hours, my listening skills improved and I developed techniques that helped me BRIDGE THE GAP from an amateur to professional sound.
And THIS was the key insight...
Making Music Is Like Baking A Cake
I learned that making music is like baking a cake. And there are two ESSENTIAL components: (1) the ingredients and (2) the recipe.
And these components line up with two problems that ALL producers face when learning to make music:
- The Ingredients Problem
- The Recipe Problem
The Ingredients Problem
Analyzing songs helped me discover WHAT my music was missing. So I got better at choosing WHAT to put in my tracks:
These are all the ingredients you “cobble” together to make your tracks sound amazing.
And the better the ingredients you use, the better your tracks will sound.
But, believe it or not, getting that “pro” sound is only HALF the battle...
The Recipe Problem
Yes....my sound was improving. But.......
I was still struggling to FINISH tracks on a regular basis. I knew WHAT to do, but I didn’t know WHEN to do it.
That’s what a RECIPE gives you: step-by-step instructions so you know exactly WHAT to do and WHEN to do it.
I was lacking a recipe. I was lacking a systematic process.
In music, we call this a workflow. And as I developed a consistent, step-by-step workflow, I was finally able to finish top-quality tracks quickly and consistently.
Plus, I no longer got stuck during the arrangement stage because I knew when to move on and what to do next.
Here's the thing...
Most people just wind up searching YouTube endlessly for tips and techniques.
That's like trying to cook a meal without a recipe. Sure, you'll have ingredients....but you'll never create a finished meal.
Songs are the same way. Just like ingredients NEED a recipe, techniques NEED a workflow.
The Complete System
It took me a LONG time — almost TEN years — to perfect my production system and make the music I wanted to make.
But it didn’t have to take that long. NOT EVEN CLOSE.
Some of my students have made the SAME progress in under ONE year. And you can too, if you...
- Start with the right ingredients and the right recipe
- Learn the right techniques AND the right workflow
- Know exactly WHAT to do and WHEN to do it
Bottom Line: If you want to finish professional quality tech house tracks that are ready for labels, you need a COMPLETE SYSTEM...

The Tech House Production System consists of 2 CORE COURSES that reveal exactly how to finish professional quality tech house tracks from start to finish.

What Other Producers Are Saying...
Over 485+ students have benefited from the Tech House Production System and here’s what some recent students have to say…
I've had a few tracks signed to 4 different labels but there are some things separating me from the big dogs. After going through ZERMELO’s courses, I can already tell the difference in my tracks.
I'm really starting to feel like I'm bringing out the finer details in the mix and I have a much more stable approach to how I'm going to finish the track. I now feel more comfortable sending my tracks to some of the bigger labels, it’s a great feeling!
I still have more to learn and I will continue to use these courses, making a big difference!
ZERMELO's course also taught me how to be extremely efficient in the mixing process by introducing me to the “flow stage” - this helped me to know what exactly I needed to do with my track step by step in order to achieve that professional sound.
The track I made directly after watching the course was my favourite track to date and I’ve signed it to my favourite label: Kulture Records and will be out in their ADE sampler on the 17th of October.
What kind of results can you expect?
ZERMELO students have achieved incredible results: from finishing their first track all the way to signing with legendary labels like Toolroom and Dirtybird.

Don't like it? Doesn't help? Get a refund.
If you're on the fence, I recommend that you enroll risk free. Watch the lessons, implement the techniques, and if you’re not feeling the results after 60 days, email me and I will give you a full refund.
No questions. No hassle. No risk for you.
If you request a refund, you can still keep the templates. There is no way for me to get them back. So I'm taking on ALL the risk. But that's cool with me because I just want to make sure you have the chance to join the courses 100% risk free.
Why do these courses focus on PAWSA and Solardo?
The combination of these two courses is powerful because the PAWSA and Solardo sound are popular, but different.
The PAWSA approach — including Michael Bibi, FISHER, Cloonee, and Solid Grooves producers — is minimalistic. You have to get the most out of the small number of sounds and hooks in the arrangement and mix.
The Solardo approach — including Toolroom — is more about creating a rich and layered texture, a strong drive, and a huge bass. The skill here is getting everything to work together.
Together, you’ll learn what it takes to master two different and far-reaching approaches to making house. Along the way, deeper your understanding, pick up new tricks, and make some amazing tracks!
What happens after I sign up?
After you sign up and complete your payment, you’ll receive an email from "ZERMELO" with information on how to access your courses.
You will be able to download your bonus templates inside the member area — is where you'll also be able to access all your courses.
How long do I have access for?
Upon your purchase, you will have lifetime access to the your courses and free updates for life.
Unless, of course, you request a refund. Then your membership access will be revoked.
Do I need specific plugins to follow along?
No. Ableton's plugins are totally fine.
You’ll see me use different 3rd party plugins but I use them because I used to switch between DAWs (Logic and Ableton) and using 3rd party plugins made switching back and forth easier.
These days (mid 2019), I'm 100% Ableton with a few exceptions:
- LFO Tool from Xfer Records
- Pro Q from Fab Filter
- Pro L from Fab Filter
But these plugins are NOT necessary for you to follow along in the course — nor are they necessary for you to achieve a professional sound. I just like them.
What if I don't like the courses?
Email email@example.com and request a refund within 60-days of your initial purchase.
No questions. No hassle. No big deal.
I have another question.
