Osman - "Stardancer" (NGADM)

"Stardancer" is a tune I swirled around inside my head while on a recent trip to New York City, and I've decided to bring it to life for the NGADM.

Blending warm-sounding Synthpop with Hip Hop and a little bit of Breakbeat, and attempting more ambitious fusions of sounds, I think this is the most excited I've been about producing a piece of music in a very long time.

I'm in love with the idea, but between my trip and my busy work schedule, I simply didn't have the time to make it just right in time for the contest. I suppose that's what I'll be doing for the next couple of months in between my other projects—making this just right.

I sincerely hope you dig it.


Pretty fun, innocent little tune, and a good blend of sonic textures. I like your progression, but I could go without the extreme pitch bends everywhere. Other than that it sounds just a little empty. It sounds like something is missing.

I like the cute, blissful synth riffs at the beginning. The clap sample at :14 is both a little loud and pretty generic. I like the quirky mood and and other instruments, though. I think the texture is missing a lot of fill by the 1-minute mark. I think you needed some more bass frequencies in there to fill out the texture. The melodic content is enjoyable, but the minimalism was really bothering me by 1:30 or so. The strings at around 2:45 were a nice touch, and overall the production quality is solid here. Structurally, this piece is enjoyable too, although the melodies could use some more variation. Overall, it’s a pretty strong piece that needs a little more work on some of the compositional elements. Keep at it, Osman. ;)


good yeah i can kind of tell that you were rushed here but i like the main melody and also the stepwise descending base section.

always a fan of your style! :D
