For the vocals you will need an acapella. This is just the vocal from the track. You can't really extract the vocal from a track (you can get a rough acapella but I wont discuss that, there's no need), but many artists these days release an acapella. Just google "rihanna acapella" to find some of hers. I use Abelton or an MPC to slice. The Maschine is perfect for this too. Lots of tutorials on YouTube for that.

I have mixcraft...do you feel that would be sufficient?

And also do you have any suggestions on making the beats and the samples used as well? Thank you for your help

No you do not need vocals. I recreated a Trippy Turtle track just by applying this filter in Logic. Surprisingly, all he did basically in one of his beats was apply a similar filter, pitch the track three octaves up and put in a jersey club type drum beat over the original drum pattern. I made the filter using trial & error so I have no way of explaining it. Here's a picture, though.

Trippy Turtle is Cashmeere Cat. I didn't know that. I was just thinking to myself before I realised "What's the relation to a Turtle and a Dolphin". Because Cashmeere makes Dofflin too (play on the word Dolphin).

Love his "Wet" track.

I've never heard of mixcraft. Sounds like something you'd buy from PC World. If you're serious about music looking to a decent DAW. Abelton, Logic, even Fruity Loops is decent these days.

Actually Trippy Turtle is LidoLido (a different norweigan producer). Drippy Dolphin idk.

There actually seems to be a debate online about whether or not Trippy Turtle is or isn't Cashmere Cat.

Are you referring to this LidoLido? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b70nAPj40Eo ... He sounds American, and doesn't even sound like Trippy Turtle. I assume you mean a different one.

Edit: Nope it's the same one. I can't see how this is Trippy Turtle. Where's the reference to it?

I hate jersey club with a passion, yet I know many friends and some top djs in the jersey area who make these tracks and have tons of insight on how this work.

The DAW of choice for these tracks are FL Studio. Yes you could make this genre in any DAW (tried it in Pro Tools with a friend and it took longer than usual he admitted), but the workflow in FL Studio is built for this type of stuff. Even Ableton would be a great choice.

You would need an acapella and an instrumental, beat align them and you are ready for business.

These guys are DJS so all they are really doing is speeding both up, chopping and slicing both sections in and playing them in a more upbeat fashion.

They usually incorporate loops, and Fl Studio and Ableton easily allows you to make any loop fit any tempo. Which is why those two DAWS are built for these types of things.

A ton of the drums are usually the FL Stock stuff as well as the effects since well, all they know is FL Studio. Especially the breaks you hear are Fl stock. Its pretty cool to see people only using stock FL Studio stuff to make music.

The synths are usually sytrus, once again since it is fl studio stock.

This genre isnt hard at all. You need to keep in mind that most people who make this are actual DJs, so they have the mentality of DJing when creating this, which explains the uptempos, chopping and slicing the acapella and instrumental to further enforce the uptempo vibe.

Mixcraft would be efficent since DAWs are just blank canvases, but FL Studio and Ableton would really make this **** WAYYY easier.

I also think there's a bit of a grey line between Jersey Club and this sort of stuff (which if cozak is correct would be Trippy Turtle):

... this is more harmonious and musical than Jersey Club I find.
