Re: HOuse music with vocals

I like when sets have a few tracks without vocals and then a vocal track comes in later. Not with too many words but enough to take you somewhere for a minute and drop you back off after its over. I think in moderation it is very nice if the vocalist is a good singer.

Re: HOuse music with vocals

vocals are good if one or all of these apply..
a). the vocals are well performed,
b). the lyrics arent vacuous,
c). they add to the music rather than take over,
d). the music is actually good and not obvious/cheesy,
e). you get the hook/chorus caught in your head.

Re: HOuse music with vocals

Vocal House Music has always been one of my favorite genre, to the point where if making music i feel i have to add a vocal to make the track a little more interesting...

MK has brought some good vocal house music to the masses, and they all share some common traits mention by @ Faux

Re: House music with vocals

I feel like vocals can really add a special element to a song if executed properly. I've heard some songs where the vocals just either feel like an afterthought or they just smother the entire song.

I think House music is a lot about the vibe, so vocals should only accentuate the track.

Re: House music with vocals

For me its just another instrument. It has its own positive and negative factors. That being said I can go out and listen to a house set for 5 hours that has nothing but a few chopped up voxes and not feel like something was missing.

Re: House music with vocals

A subject close to my heart. Nobody i know understands why i get really excited by a few words sung by an intriguing voice and layered over a perfect groove. I'm not so keen on house that's been turned into a full on verse-chorus style track. It's more about a vox that accentuates some feeling about the track. Something like Maya Jane Coles 'Don't Tell Me' is what i'm talking about - just plants a little notion in your mind that seems to 'fit'. Ruffneck 'Everybody Be Somebody' is another goodie.

Re: House music with vocals

When it comes to vocals i use short chopped up snippets alot, often pitched with chorus verb etc.
Basically i try to turn them into instruments most of the time.

Re: House music with vocals

I always tend to find womens vocals work better than men, almost as if mens vocals are to low and can sometimes take away fromi the lower ends of your music if not done right ... Womens vocals always seem higher pitchd (obviously) which to me always feels like it sits just right ... I've never worked with vocals, but when i hear a house track with them, thats always the first impressions i get

Re: House music with vocals

I think vocals are awesome, they give the listener a little hook to remember the song by.
