Crab Dance


Author Comments

Hello beautiful people, ummm, this song has a sad backstory, so if you want to read this, go ahead.


When I started music production I used to show my works to my classmates, they would respond with a mean comment saying that I will never achieve anything with my music, teachers and other people were saying the same, those comments really hurt me those days, so whenever I showed them my music and they say they didn't like it, I would leave music production for a few months, then come back to it, make a new song, show it to my classmates, and the loop went on and on, without stop.

Until I met Denis and Vasia, they were good friends of mine, I would usually visit them once a month, they lived 3-4 hours away from the place I used to live in, really good people.

One day before going to visit them I decided to take my laptop with me to showcase them my musical work and passion for everything I made, I also told them that people didn't appreciate the work I do and told me that I would be unsuccesful.

They laughed while telling me if I could show them more of my projects, and I did, I really felt supported and I finally understood that there is people in this world that would appreciate me and my music and the hard work it takes to release my tunes, this song "Crab Dance", was a song I made with Denis and Vasia, Denis was the main idea, I was the vocals and Vasia was some minor adjustments, this was the final project, we made this beautiful thing.


A few months, passed, haven't heard about those guys in a while, they told me they were really busy with work and some life complications along the way, I still visited them to cheer them up. We went for a walk, to a coffee shop, watched movies together, I also teached Denis some sound-design, and then I went home, not knowing that that would be the last time I would see them.


I remember this moment, it was a Friday, I woke up and went to wash some dishes to prepare myself breakfast, my mother was sitting on a red chair reading something, all of a sudden I hear her crying, I asked what's the matter and she told me that Denis and Vasia were found dead in their apartment, I was so sad that I didn't even had the hability to cry.


This song is for you guys, and thank you for the valuable lessons you have given me, I will always remember you, and the song will be forever in my head, love you <3

What I like the most about this song is that it's not attempting to showcasing top notch or expensive samples but instead brings an understated mood that's both hypnotising and humorous.
Keep at it, I hear something special and unique on this music!

PinkShirtDude responds:

thank you a lot for your review friend, really heart-warming, much love for you!

el ritmo esta pegajoso y no se porque pero me recordo a la musica de un comercial de pepsi

PinkShirtDude responds:

haha, pepsi

Dang that story is sad, fire song tho :)

Edit: Some of the parts go on for a while without adding much, so I'd advise to add smaller things and then add a bunch for an epic drop.

PinkShirtDude responds:

yeah, I get you, I might re-make the song, but this would stay as the original

Bounce and punch crabbic

PinkShirtDude responds:

thank you a lot for your comment friend!
