[Tsets] - Jack Is Coming For You (For Fun Track)
Named "Jack is Coming For You" because the bell arp sounding Jack-in-the-box esque.

Made this relatively quickly with what spare time I had, pretty random but there are some very nice parts included.
Another track that utilizes the tempo change heavily.
I'm trying to get into creating Housey music so this is kind of a huge practice track with a lot of elements

I hope you all enjoy!!! It's pretty different from a lot of my other tracks

I love the way the bass kinda thrums through the entire song; it adds an almost electric feel to the song, and it never gets in the way of the other sounds. Mega props to your mixing skills my friend. I'm not sure how i feel about the speed up in the last third of the song, but the pieces individually go together really well and i didn't feel like it took away from the song so that might just be a preference thing. I do think the slowdown at the end works beautifully though. I'm not really sure where I'd see this in a video game (aside from maybe a DDRE track) but I would be neither surprised nor disappointed if it were in a game i was playing. The ending I think would have been way better if you'd let that last note ring out instead of cutting it off, but as it is now it actually loops pretty well so I wouldn't call that a problem so much as, again, a preference. Keep it up!

Thank you!! Mixing has always been a worst enemy in a lot of my songs and that means a lot that you say that. :D

The sped up part in the last third of the song I'm thinking of actually changing/working on (or writing a Version 2 with a separate upload and leave this one as is possibly). I felt like it could build to something nicer (or approached differently essentially) and just couldn't find the right piece to fit in there.

This track is mostly for fun, I honestly wouldn't know what kind of game it would fit in either. I think in he beginning, where the beat starts up, could be looped and made into something for background music for sure! The arp in the end could also be salvaged and made into something, slow it down make it creepy, could work in something I think.

I'll have to work on a version 2 of this song, it seems like the direction I might take, nonetheless, thank you so much! :)

I love the tempo changes... stuff like that keeps a listener interested. You are exploring tempo in this song which is fuckin fun to listen to. It's not just another house mix. My favorite parts are the beginning and the end with the "jack-in-the-box" esque sounding melodies speeding up and slowing down. It's so pretty to listen to.

I would suggest going further once you bring in that house beat. I'd like to hear you really take the tempo to drastic changes throughout the track... I think it would be really cool to listen to and would give a lot of opportunity for nasty drops. Once the percussion comes in there's only one tempo change that I notice. I'd like more!

Good work.

TsetsukenMusic responds:

Thank you!!! :P
I can most certainty work on a version 2 sometime for this with a more drastic tempo modulation with some extended parts added, as well as including some nasty drops to hit it home. I can definitely see adding more change during the percussion areas to exaggerate the use of tempo modifications in this track. Almost like winding up a "Jack-in-the-box" type effect, going faster and faster until "pop" goes the drop lol

Thank you again!

This is absolutely beautiful, and I completely think House is something you should dive right into as this is really nicely done!

I'm really digging the tempo modulation in some of your songs. There's a reason why you have been recognized with making that style work and not very many people can make it work.

Some more leveling and making the song a little bit more lengthier will benefit this greatly. The ideas in this are pure genius and that is why I like your music so much, there's so much to it and so much thought into everything it seems.

Keep up the amazing work man, you deserve more recognition than you already do.

TsetsukenMusic responds:

Thank you so much!!! I never thought I would actually go into House but it is a very nice genre to do a lot of different things in and that's why I kind of started doing it (other reasons as well). I like to bend songs (with things like Tempo modulation) it makes it that much more unique and to be able to do things like that efficiently sounds so much more amazing!

I might leave this as is for now, been highly busy lately. Started a full time job and soon to be starting full time school. Hopefully this does not hinder time to have another "2013-2014" period where there's barely any uploads but I should be fine and shouldn't have to worry about anything like that happening.

Thank you!!!!! People like yourself is what keeps me continuing to have this be a more public hobby rather than not. I really appreciate your feedback and again thank you!
