Reviews for "Melancholia (House Mix)"

Interesting mix

The driving beat and distant harmonies you used reminds me of the house hit Hometown Glory and the music by Kaskade/Late Night Alumni. I think you could have spent more time polishing both the chord synth and how you introduced it. It still soars, I am just nitpicking. I would have liked to hear a little bit of development and variety in the percussion, the beat. Length is a little short for such a progressive house track. 8/10 ...#

PrEmoEffect responds:

Hmm. I will look up those producers to see what you mean. My newer tracks have more work with the percs because I've heard time and time again that mine are too mundane for house. But yeah, it's good to hear that from multiple sources. Check out my newer tracks, they are much more developed in that sense. I will, however, keep the length to a minimum because well... this is Newgrounds after all. Thanks for the review.


's real good

PrEmoEffect responds:

Haha, thanks.

This is awesome!!

But its really more trance than house.
this has got to be my favorite style of music by far though.
Deadmau5, Kaskade, Shingo Nakamura, Dinka, etc...
truly deep, amazing music that moves the soul.

I love what you have created here, and I would love to collab with you sometime if you're down. ^^;

great stuff!

PrEmoEffect responds:

The "trance" elements come from the chord progressions, bpm, and lack of complex percussion structure (when compared to Dinka) right? But I'm still a bit confused as to how this fits more in the trance genre.

melancholia ?

Do depressed people really listen to this..sounds a bit too not sad for them

PrEmoEffect responds:

Listening to this in retrospect, I can see why one would ask this question. The answer is not a one liner. I made this when I was feeling depressed. Through that filter, the mood of the song was completely different. It was more along of the lines of depressed, but hopeful. The mood it conveys, however, depends on the notes that the listener is processing. There's actually a hodge podge of different intervals thrown in each chord, each at different volumes. So perhaps one hears the 5th on the first chord, but not on the next one. That is the unintentional decision that the listener makes. I tried to do this because I wanted a song that could adapt to the listener's needs. I wanted a song that I could listen to that would make me feel better just because I wanted to feel better. I wanted music that played with perceptions. While this may work for me, it may not work for everyone.

This is not House!!!

It's Trouse :D

If only such a genre existed... :)
