Besides making the drums in the intro come in faster (I think around 35-45 would be nice), this song is pretty much complete. I love the wah wah wah sound in the intro and the synth combo at the end. Your transitions are pretty nice too.
Keep it up!
Have people lost common sense?
Flame war on: It bothers me so much that people are bringing down your score because they're bored of your style and genre. Well, if you feel like a change, why don't you go listen to someone else or even better, a different genre? Why does Jesse have to change for you? Are you some special royal from a nuclear nation where we have to oblige to your every whims? If I listen to some Chopin, then I expect a distinctive Romantic piano masterpiece. He wrote mostly piano pieces because he was not only good at it, but enjoyed writing piano pieces. I'm not going to bad mouthed him because I want him to write some Beethoven-style symphonies or something farfetched, like invent punk rock. Would you complain Tiesto is boring cause he only writes hard hitting trance music? Apple is boring cause it's always a fruit? Breathing is boring cause air is always following a pattern of in and out? All electronic music has their similarities, just as any other genres. If you're going to say this is crap cause it is repetitive, has a pattern of bass and snares, has sidechains, and sound electronic. Well you might as well say rock is crap for always having guitar. Modern RnB is crap for always singing about drugs, booze, and sex. Pop is crap for singing about love, or even just plain singing.
My point is, if you're going to listen to Jesse's music, then review accordingly based on his style and the quality of the music. Interjecting your own nonsensical bored feelings completely wipes your validity and makes you look like a plain jackass. I put all artists under the same scrutiny, big or small. Frankly, I enjoy Jesse's music and give him high remarks because his productions are wonderful and enjoyable. Not because he's popular.
All you haters just continue blaming, 0-bombing, and writing immature reviews. Just don't regret it when Jesse or any other artists you decide to hate on stop producing music.
Well i wouldn't whine about it =). Most people
who complain about stuff like that have only
heard some of my songs and havn't followed
my history =).
Thanks for the awesome review dude =).
And i do agree i see advice like "You need to change
your style" or "write a different genre" to be
a pushed oppinion on me as an artist rather
then a review on my actual music.
Thanks so much dude!!
P.S. ill never stop making music cause of other
people =). i could stop posting them or making
public but ill always write music cause thats what
i love to do =).
Hey Jessie! Gotta admit, your stuff after "we Believe" series weren't all that impressive, but this song made me jizz in my pants. True, your style is getting predictible, but I still enjoy it greatly. All genres have a certain structure, style, and pattern, and if we listen to it too often, we take notice of it and get tired. If people are going to complain about you being too predictible, I say stop putting songs on NG for a while. They'll come to appreciate it more and more.
Keep up the great work!
Btw I like this one more than dream of air.
Oh, I'm still waiting for that Mulan remix.
Alright, so I just finished giving a constructive critique to EnV's song and I received a useless rating cause I gave the song a low score. Might as well rate this review as useless, too. You know, cause that's how artists grow, by people only telling them how great their work is. Lol sorry for ranting on your song Jessie.
Here's my take:
-You have one very catchy tune starting at 0:19, but I think you overplayed it. The structure of the song is very predictable. Jazzy theme, breakdown, build up, jazzy theme, fade out. The theme can still be heard in the breakdown sequence. I think if you're going to repeat it this much, you should give it a bigger variation.
-There are so many familiar sounds in this song, I feel like you're just taking your old songs apart and rearranging them to make new songs. The kicks at 1:39, for example, is almost if not identical to the kicks you have in the basehunter remix song.
-The overall piece is flat. There's very little dynamics to it aside from the slowing down at 1:26. I feel like the excitement that you usually have in other songs are missing. Too much repetition, not enough variation.
I hope you're still continuing with the Mulan song. It was getting good.
As always, keep up the great work!
Glad you finally posted a new song. About time don't you think so?
Intro-pretty good, but transition into the vocals is awful, or nonexistent.
Actually, I have a major problem about all the transitions in this song. It's so minor I feel like you try to jam a bunch of patterns together without coherence. The song stops and starts like a broken car. The vocals are way too fast for the tempo of the background song; there is something awkward about it. One example is 3:02/3:03 and 3:10. There is a skipping of beats that completely break your mood. I hate how it was hard and kicking at 3:10 and out of the blues, a slow piano comes in, and then a fast vocal on top of it.
Less is more: I think when it comes to patterns, you're the king of complexity for dance music. Most people are bad because they repeat a phrase way too much. You're the opposite, you're doing way too much. Try doing a theme and variation on top of a 2-3 different kick ass baselines.
Song choice-Lol, I don't like this song, and it doesn't have that dance feeling to it.
The Virtual- I think he's correct. It feels a lot like your demos. You just have a bunch of phrases and passages, but no real connections.
Keep it up! I hope it won't be another 3months until u post a new song.
I have a major beef with your intro though. I love the way the drums build up to "break down ahh...", but then you followed it up with another build up section. I think the main, jumpy tune should follow the vox immediately. At 1:37, I felt the transition was weak and forced. It felt more like another one of your demos where you have good tunes, but they don't mix or flow together well enough.
Ah transitions. I had a lot of trouble with transitions on this track. i wasn't quite sure how to go about doing them, so alot of times I choked, and they didn't come out so great.
Thanks for the review
This has to be my favorite remix of this vocals by far. I especially love the intro. The deep sounding synth (i think) matches perfectly with the deep bass. Very relaxing, yet powerful at the same time.
I agree with Haggard about the intro being too generic. It's also not all that catching and a bit too dragged out. The dead part around 1min killed the song for me. It was just silence.. I was expecting more of a build up portion with energy and power, but it was lazy and ambient-like. That, too, dragged on a bit too long. The final portion around 2min is repetitive. I've heard the bass line in the background many many many many times. Try switching it up? Try adding more variations and patterns. The ending is is too abrupt.
It's a promising song. I can't wait for the final version!
Variation is my problem for a long time. I will try to add/mix up things in the final version :) Thanks for your criticsm
Back in action
The last few releases you've made didn't have much quality, but this one made up for it completely! Great bass! And you said it was your weakness. Does that mean you're invincible now? =p
NO IM NOT INVINCIBLE WHEN WILL YOU GUYS GET IM NOT BAT MAN!!!
(If you don't get that you will think im weird or high)
Thanks for the review =D!
