Q

what is one thing that really helped you out with structuring and arranging the musicality of a track?

Marijuana.

No, that was a joke.

My biggest breakthrough was in learning to sketch out the whole track in rough first, so as to establish a 'dramatic arc' and then going back to fill in the details and accentuate dynamics.

I find it's much easier to build an intro and a middle if you have a rough idea of what shape the end will be.
