Sketch 2: House Idea


Author Comments

Here's another project I was working on like a month ago. As you can see, I was deeply inspired by Nero's "Act Like You Know." The only difference is that this has a house vibe. I really didn't want to classify this full-on in the dubstep realm, since it does have that house-ish beat in there and there isn't any heavy "wobbling," yet it still has a bit of the dubstep flare in there, if you can't tell. If you were to categorize it in some cheesy user-defined genre, I guess you could call it "house-step"? That's not really important.

All I wanna know is what y'all think of the idea. Mixing and mastering shall come later.

You should really finish this

This is probably some of the best electronic i've ever heard dude. Idk if i would call it house... but it's really damn good haha.


mr-jazzman responds:

Haha thanks, I might consider it! =D


Your house music is amazing. The ideas are very well executed, and this is the first I've heard of this mash-up of genres "house-step" as you call it. My ears are thoroughly pleased with what they are hearing in this track.


mr-jazzman responds:

Thank you very much! =D Nero was my inspiration here...betchya can't tell lol. ;)


Make this a house song, you rarely find house songs of this quality on NG.
-I'd remove the glitchy hats in the intro. Leave out any percussion.
-at 0:14 I'd add a 4 by 4 kick.
-then a reverse cymbal at 0:26 and a reverb kick at 0:27-0:28-ish.
-Then a generic Kick Snare pattern, If you want I can send you a snare.
-And then lots of basses and melody in the shape of Zedd's stuff.
That's my input anyway.

mr-jazzman responds:

Thanks for your input man. I appreciate it, but remember that this is just a sketch lol. Mostly it's just here to show you some of the ideas that I've been playing with lately -- stuff that I'll be screwing around with during the production of my album. But, you've got some really good pointers here. I know that the snare isn't the greatest; I've been experimenting with different snare samples, and trust me, I've got more than enough samples to work with lol. I think that I've come close to perfecting the levels and compression on my drums, although some final tweaking is of course in order before I finalize my album. But, you bring up some really cool things that I'd like to experiment with in the future, so thank you very much for your input! =D
