Morning ladies and gents

Here’s the start of my latest efforts that may be on my forthcoming EP – after the main breakdown and drop it pretty much loops btw. Looking for feedback on mix, structure and vibe – does this feel dancefloor or more lounge music?

Cheers

Re: [House] Like a song (half way finished!!)

Nice, crisp drum sound. I think however, it is a little too prominent in the mix. Vocal fade is a little too slow; distracting to have indescipherable lyrics for as long as it happens here, maybe fade them in 2/3 as fast as you do now? This feels like more of a dance song to me, reminds me a bit of Earth Wind and Fire crossed with mario kart. I think if you doubled the part you have on your main synth with something with a slightly longer decay and put it through a harmonic exciter it would build a bit stronger. Breakdown that starts at 4:00 is very effective, and bass at drop at 5:23 is great. You should turn up that bass line even more! Excited to hear the end result, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the indepth feedback much appreciated – I’m intrigued with what you mean by vocal fade where are you referring to it being too slow and indecipherable?

*EDIT* sorry just go it - you mean the filter up in the intro - yes I agree they should be decipherable quicker! Also which main synth are you referring to - there is a rhodes and piano for the main melody but then another synth kicks in at 2.42?

Snares and claps are too loud in the beginning, also 9 mins is really pushing it man, but hey, Great job overall!

The rhodes ( I believe; I'm referring to whatever is responsible for creating the block chords that become clearly heard around 50 seconds into the piece)


And yeah, you got it; by vocal fade I just mean how quickly the sampled vocals fade into the piece

Thanks for the feedback people - its only 9 mins as I pretty much duplicated the first half after the main breakdown as its a WIP - obviously this will be chopped down considerably.
