I heard this song for several months in SoundCloud, but did not think it was here in newgrounds.
all love from me and I hear this song enough.
good work ^-^
[love the chessy vocals]
What's this? An album? *faints*
Man, this rocks!
Imma be your first customer, unless of course the crowds get there first!
And the track? *goes to soundcloud*
...I love it.
But not Nu-Disco really. I'd classify this as Dance, personally, as it has the loud/heavy kick and thick synths. Nu-Disco is more personified by a live-sounding drum set and classic synths but using modern compression/production techniques.
Sorry to get into semantics there. :D
The song itself is amazing, my ONLY complaint is the weird ^knock* sound that you use at 0:03, 0:05, 0:07, etc. It seems totally unsuited to the rest of the track. Everything else meshes and gels so well but that just seems off. I'd use a big splashy clap as it raises anticipation more.
Yeah I know, the only real disco-ey portion is the bass in the intro and the breaks. But I went for nu-disco, failed, but still claim it as such. Probably from stubbornness. Actually this was when I still thought French House and Nu-Disco were the same thing. I was going for a French House vibe, but without the sampling. Either way I got something totally different lol.
Also that knock was kind of a last minute thing. I wanted a sort of house beat behind the intro/outro, and I thought it fit pretty well. Now that I think about it, a clap would probably work a little better.
Either way, I'm gonna upload a more finished track eventually, I contacted the band I got the "You can't back down" from, and they're gonna send me the acapella to that song :D I'll have more of that in there, and probably fix the knock.
Thanks for the input! Always glad to get some good critique here and there.
Ooooooo im a big big fan man.
Love how you play around with different styles, never stale, always fresh.
Thanks! I think the genre switching is more for my sake lol. I couldn't live with myself if I turned into that guy who pumps out the same song over and over :P
I love the sidechained synth. Not much I can really say about this, though I'm still waiting on the "Unfinished Trance" wip.
Patience :P I wanna make that one perfect before releasing it.
Also that's actually like 4 different synths layered on top of each other lol.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
