So, well.. I'll catch you on the flipside I guess..
In this cold E-line
gonna make that lady mine
you better don't deny
cuz you'll leave my face in twine
In this cold i'm gonna stay
you'll catch me on the flipside
when you go away
I'll still be waiting
I really liked this track. The vocals were placed really well and even catchy enough to get stuck in my head. What really did it for me was the 2 different voices. Together they really made the song come to life. Just the deep or the just the main vocalist wouldn't of worked as well for this. What really caught my attention was 1:55 where the deeper voice asked what they were talking about in the pause in the music. It just...felt so right.
I'm normally not a big fan of lyrics in electronic music because they tend to overpower the music instead of working with it. Here seems to be an exception, so congrats on really knowing how to make both work together!
While there is always room for improvement I have 2 main critiques.
1. I can't tell what the main singer is saying with the exception of the "catch me on the flipside". I had to refer to your description to find out what he was singing. This being your intention or not, it annoyed me a bit. I like to know what is being said if you add them because it can add a whole different "meaning" or "feeling" to the song.
2. While I said earlier that I liked the two voices, they seem to to add two different feels to the song. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be darker, or a more lighthearted finger tapping tune. This made for me a feeling truly unique to this song. I'm just not sure if this was intentional or not.
If nothing else, this song made me really want to check out the rest of your work, and that's a good thing.
I wish you the best on your music crafting journey.
well, for starters, awesome comment :D
I rarely get lengthy comments like this, it's usually the same old shallow crap. but when I do, I love them, even if they would be completely negative. A giant comment means that you've paid a lot of attention to particular details and of course the entire structure, which is absolutely awesome.
I must say that I'm not a big fan of big lyrics in electronic songs either but a well placed vocal shout here or there can make a song stand or fall. This track however does come with a lot of singing, but i've intentionally sung only 2 pieces of lyrics which would be repeated all the time to make the voice feel more like a synth than an actual singing voice. While the deeper voice acts as the well placed shouts.
1. The main vocals are my own voice. the reasons for these being annoyingly faint are: My native language is dutch, so my english doesn't sound all that good and clear. but the main reason is my 10$ logitech microphone which records sound like a vacuum cleaner. But I did make it a bit more distorted on purpose to have this 'very-old-mic' sort of effect. I knew people wouldn't be perfectly able to hear the words propperly so I added the lyrics :-)
2. The second voice you hear isn't my own, it's a bunch of vocal samples from a pc game I have. "that's why they sound so clear and well-made :-)" but yes it was my intention to have a big controverse feeling between the two voices.
hope this answers some of your questions, and thanks again for the comment, it's wildly appreciated!
jajajaja... just great. the vocals are so right and well-made.
i really like this...
Thats right, i like it too... :D
The beat is amazing but the vocals makes it well not to be a douche but it makes it sounds like shit so it would have been 5 if the vocals were gone and you added that awesome beat that starts at 1:04. That beat sounds amazing so you should make another song with just the beat(No vocals) and added more of the beat that starts at 1:04 XD
well, you do sound like a douche (no offence) when you say the vocals make it sound like shit, because without vocals the song feels empty as shit, like lots of my previous songs. I like electronic music without vocals, but with vocals every song sounds just more complete. It helps people familiarise with the tune. the vocals could have been better though :D
I think my head exploded out of shear amazement XD great peice of music
thanks dude, you might wanna glue your face back together for my upcoming tunes! :D
