Feels Like Meh (NG Cut)

Author Comments

Hey everybody! After a long period of "writers" block, I got around to finishing my progressive house track (this one). So let's get started, eh? ;)

NOTE: This is an NG cut, so intros and endings have been changed from the original mix. Also quality has been reduced (160 Kbps), while the original is (320 Kbps). (Sorry I had to do it I can actually post this here on NG)

- I've been doing a lot of experimenting with filters and pads lately and I found that mixing white noise with a pad really changes a lot of things.

-This is probably the track that I used the most instruments on (6 Polysonic Synths, 4 Drum machines, 2 Samplers).

-I also was working up on the kick drum in this one and I discovered that a high-pitched shake offset just before a kick drum hit, sounds awesome (Thank you ReGroove mixer :P).

-Again with the stabby chords (I know, played out, right?), but I decided to take on a different approach than just the ordinary 1/8th note approach. I listened to a lot of music by Thomas Schwartz and if anyone takes a listen to him, you can definately hear the substance of him in this track.

Enjoy the tunes! Comments and rates are VERY MUCH welcome! :)

Production Notes:
-Time Spent: 12-13 days (Most of it was just digressing with some other tracks)
-Program used: Reason version 4
-Samples used: Reason Sound Bank and xfrscd01 (Xfer)
-Influences: Thomas Schwartz (Jupiter Calling) and Deadmau5 (Jaded)

*I used Propellerhead's Reason 4 for this production (No VSTs used :P)

The volume cut beat!

That's my favorite kind of House music. The kind of song where the kick turns the entire track's volume down for a split second. Was this intentional or done naturally by the limiter?

Daydreaming just got easier.

You ever get that feeling in the middle of the day where you really don't want to continue doing that monotonous chore, you know, living in reality.

This song creates that path to beyond. It frees you of the shackles that society slaps onto your creativity. The song littleraly tells me "It's okay to think this way, find your board and ride this wave. Never look back!"

Yes, you can say I have a vivid imagination.

*taps out beat of song*

very nice, very calming (in a way). so this is house... i always listen to ambient and trance... but i always though house was some sort of rapping heavy metal. but this.. i like this.

thanks for the share!
good job and good luck in the future

BrokenCrossfader responds:

i dont know how you got that "Rapping Heavy Metal" idea but that would be like the complete opposite of what house music is haha

This is Progressive House, the bridge between House and Trance Music

thanks for listening



dude deadmau5 quality on NG, that is amazing, props bro

Its ok

I hate house and I actually sort of like it.

BrokenCrossfader responds:

Nobody hates house... some people just dislike it passionately :D
