Watching Olav work on a track from beginning to end once through gave me at one go the gestalt and dozens of small cool things.
'Subtractive remixing' cool idea and now I am encouraged to take the twenty or so incomplete session view sketches and carve out a complete track. By the way, in other videos he has also taken the additive approach.
Side chain compression - take mundane sounding chords and listen and learn how to make them pump.
The edm form how to get the right build and break.
The all important drum tracks and making them build and sizzle.
Basic advice here is to experiment and be fearless. By the way most of the magic happened with samples an live plugins
Only one small complaint and fault of Olav is that the video was made with live 8, not Live 9 as shown in the title.

I think I have picked up more in the last couple of days than I have in six months of trying to work things out for myself!
