Thought i'd try my hand at some Nu-Disco. Pretty much failed, but here's a nice dance track for you guys :D

You can listen to the full version here: http://soundcloud.com/im-

If all goes well, it should be up on itunes in the next few weeks! So if you feel like supporting me, go grab it! All proceeds are definitely gonna go towards better software :)

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.

Or4nges responds:

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.


Or4nges responds:

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.
