Nostalgia In Space (NG Cut)

Download this song!

Author Comments

*This is an NG cut, which means the intro and ending drums have been cut off allowing this to go straight to the point. Also, the quality is lower because it is on 128kbps, while the radio cut is 192kbps and the original mix is 320kbps.*

After like 4 monthes since my last piece, I come back with another Progressive House track. This one allowed me to work on my mixing as well as my mastering, which I believe, still needs a little more work.

Nostalgia in Space is one of my more emotional tracks, focusing more on different progressions and atmosphere throughout the tune. This makes it differ from the song's counter-part, Feels Like Meh. Also, this track uses subtle hat programming without the use of loops, which I haven't done since Final Thought. Like all my productions, this track is done entirely within Propellerhead's Reason 4.

So on to track details and discoveries:
-I found out that it is better to manipulate drums on the NNXT sampler than just running it on ReDrum. Also, the drum samples sound better in quality when I use NNXT for some reason so I decided not to use ReDrum at all.
-I also improved how I layer my claps and snares, giving it a little more punch by sliding some of the samples right before the kick drum.
-I now use the SubTractor synth for my bass patches and I route it through a vocoder EQ because it sounds a lot more heavy as opposed to a regular EQ.
-All drum samples are layered, with no loops added.

Track Summary:
Time Spent - 7-9 days
Samples used - Xfer xfrscd01, Reason Sound Bank
Instruments used - Thor, Subtractor, NNXT Sampler
Influences - Dinka (Green Leaf), Adam K & Soha (Who Cares)
Programs Used - Propellerhead's Reason 4

This song is some awesome anytime music. Very chill and has a good beat. It is a repetitive song (But in a good way!). I personally cannot critique this song. It is too good for me to notice any flaws or abnormalities.
Awesome Job!

awesome work

its great to hear some quality work on newgrounds. often either people settle for anything, or artists dont feel like submitting their work here because it is really good. (and not to mention house).

this is a great piece and I love the emotional part to it. i always like it because it really gets you into the music. If you made music like this, hell id buy your CD. i dont like many many mainstream artists in the electronic department, so in my book you are better than many.

Also, i may be wrong(as you are more devoted and talented than I am), but maybe tone down the closed hi hat a little bit. i think it takes away a little bit of the song, and makes the beat a tiny bit funky. maybe just me, but im leaning on that it does a little. if you could respond to me that would be good since im always learning more about developing music.
