[Harsh Mellow] Toothpinch - Soul Funk

No clue what to label this as - so just made something up.

Older song of mine I went back to clean up / re-release, never posted here.

hmmm not sure about the vocals m8ty, but thats just me maybe change the bassline instead of it just being 1/16 notes? I feel like the vocals rob the track of it's meaning, and it tries to be edgy or cool but it fails and makes everything else fail as well. I'd say play around with the melodies and bassline, and take off the vocals :p keep it up !

I agree, the vocals don't compliment the track. The experimentation is cool though, maybe the mood of the track needs to change to suit the vocals. Maybe you need to make two different tracks... like a pt. II? Thanks for sharing

Re: [Harsh Mellow] Toothpinch - Soul Funk

Yeah..sorry, but I have to agree with what the guys have already said. It's not a bad track..just a bad marriage of sounds I think..kinda sounds like a cheesy early electro thing gone wrong..one of those tracks you heard late at night on the radio one wet Tuesday night and never heard again. As Ryno said, maybe you need to make two track out of this..idk.

The upside to this, if you want to view it as such, is this really reminds me of Kavinsky's Nightcall from the score of the movie "Drive"..well, at least I hear touches of it in there.

Re: [Harsh Mellow] Toothpinch - Soul Funk

Ok, thanks for the advice.

The vocal effects go along with all the other songs I do - so it really wasn't much of a departure in that regard - but yeah, if it's not matching the lyrics / music - then I get it.

Cheesy early electro / industrial is kinda my thing, but trying to make it "work".
If I get in the mood I will give a crack at it again, but I will probably let it fall off in the pile of "nopes".
As I get a little more confidence with my voice I will do less on the processing / effects.

thx again

I don't think it's one for the "nope" pile..and sorry if what we're saying here makes you feel like that about this. If this is your style, man..and it's what you're going for..then keep at it...it's all in the polishing..and dropping this will not help you take your style further..you really should go back and re-work this..if only for the experience and different things it throws up at you in the process.

Keep doing what you do, due..and keep pushing yourself..it never ends for any of us who are serious about what we do.

Regarding the vocals..kudos on that front..again. practice makes perfect, as they say. That style of singing is all in the timing I guess..the FX side you seem to have nailed already.

Anyway, just wanted to offer some sort of support to ya, in case you went away thinking..

a) you suck

b) we suck.

or

c) We all suck


None of the above are true.
