The Frizz (PREMIERE)


Author Comments

Hey my peeps!!

It is an honor to bring to Newgrounds the premiere of my brand new single "The Frizz" which will soon be available on Spotify, iTunes, Play Music and all mayor music platforms.

I consider this one of my best productions to date and could potentially become one of my signature tracks.

The idea behind this song was to make an Electro song similar to my track "Fine Tuning" (which was very well received), but adding a Trance break, which is the genre for which I am better known. In addition to adding "a game" that involves the audience as mentioned during the opening of the track.

Here are the vocals:

Ladies and Gentlemen
Name of the Game
is "The Frizz"

The rules are quote simple
You dance to the music
And when the beat stops
You freeze and hold the
position you were in
when you were dancing
until the beat starts again

Are You Ready?
Drop the Beat

Enjoy! ;)

Insane quality in the beat and crisp clarity in the mainline. That bass definitely has some weight to it creating a sort of command presence.

The idea of dancing, then stopping and then back to dancing really works well for what you produced this track for with minimalism. However, I do agree with Shawn about this track having a bit too much repetition and not really going any further in variation. The supporting/harmonizing synth that comes in around 1:28 really carries this track into my favorite part with those smooth pads at 1:57, which really opens this track. Not a big fan of that short build up around 3:05; it just felt a bit too forced sounding and a tad obnoxious. I think if you phased this build up or even filtered it, it would sound more dynamic than flat and repetitive during this section.

Overall man, this is definitely one hell of a banger, and the amount of quality and effort you poured into this is excellent. Add a little more variation to this in those more repetitive sections, and you have an outstanding dance anthem, JF!

JohnnyFrizz responds:

Thanks brother! As always I really appreciate your reviews and opinions, as you well pointed out the minimalistic aspect of this track is definitely intended to keep the audience focuses on the the beat and it's pauses.

I do agree however with the build up, I believe I could definitely improve it and the filter idea is a good one, I'll definitely try it out!

I'll see what I can come up with to add a bit more variation ;)

Thanks again mah man!
