This is really cool! I've never heard something quite like this before. I especially like that clap and the 8-bit lead (especially those chords after the halfway mark). However, I think that the 3rd chord in the progression should be (in some places) just a straight up major chord (as opposed to a major 7th chord).
But damn, this is good.
Thanks TKG. :) You're right about those chords, I'm too lazy to go back and fix now though. ;)
What is this I don't even...
This beat is totally badass! For the sake of awesomeness, please finish this!
Oh yea, I remember...
Awesome composition, love the strings in the background, vocoded lyrics sounding great, interesting chord progressions... I remember first hearing this song and thinking that I'd heard it somewhere before, and I could make out part of the lyrics.
Recently I've come to the amazing realisation that at 2:07 the semi-quavers are swung, a slight 'imperfection' that makes it all the more dancable. Best track on Nordland, great wrap up (sweet bonus track on the CD too!)
It's a great beat, reminds me a bit of Daft Punk.
So I'm just rocking along, and it "trips"! I LOVE TRIPS!!! And then it was all like "woah!" at 1:39, and reminded me of Ladytron a bit. Sad that it slowed down at the end though.
This is mad as, man, I need more.
Cool guys! thanks, yeah I guess I didn't really let it build up to its full potential. cut it a little short. I'll re-up a better, full one later on!! peace!
OMG SELF-BUILT LEADS!!! Dude, this is THE BEST!!! How did you make the leads though?
Some good dubstep you got going on there though, damn this is so cool.
Thanks for the review, sorry for the lateness!
I used massive to make the leads, quality program.
Toto - Africa
Is a song I'm into right now. This reminds me of it a bit at about 0:30. This is really really good! It has a really good African/plainzy feel and everything, nice amount of variation, everything ties in together well. It's nice how it turned out, it would sound great in a game. (What kind of game was it going to be?)
The guitar and the drums sounded really nice, was that a VST? What program did you use?
Thanks! All of the sounds and VST's I used are mentioned in the description. The plucked (nylon-string) guitar was from Hypersonic 2 (it's a VST which has a massive library of synthesized sounds) and the rhythm (steel-string) guitar is from Virtual Guitarist 2 (it's a VST which has preset rhythms of guitars). The percussive sounds except the ambient ones which can be heard mostly in the piano solo are from Stormdrum.
And the game was going to be a large RPG game which would have a number of different 'worlds'. Each world would be themed differently. For example, one of the worlds'd be an evil world, another an ice world, another a futuristic world, etc... the aim being to finish each world to move on to the next. We had to make a soundtrack for each of these themed worlds with a different style for each (techno-y for the futuristic world, evil-sounding for the evil world, cold and icy for the ice world, etc...), along with a game-over theme, menu theme, boss theme for each world, and so on. There were like ten worlds or so, and in all we were asked to make a total of like 20-30 different background songs :P.
Was a tough job but we were definitely up to it. Too bad we lost contact with the artist for some reason and only got two songs done, this one and a game-over theme :(.
Anyway, really glad you like this song, and thanks again :).
Very professional sounding! It reminds me of something from the 80's, in a good way; someone should make a Mirror's Edge video clip for this. It's got great lyrics, awesome music, it's just plain AWESOME!! This is suddenly my new favourite song.
I like the robot voice, it sounds like the same robot Binaerpilot uses. I'd really like to know what programs and resources you used.
This Pwns, Bigtime
I mean, even if John Williams met up with MIC, Scooter and Ladytron, I don't think they could've ever done better than this. Nice bass/kick, and synth solo for the 'Binary Sunset' theme. I love it!
Although a bit on the quiet side. I had to turn my speakers up a fair way, and the loudest thing is the drums, so maybe amp everything else up, especially the voices. And the last 2 minutes were quite inaudible, and then it fades away...
But apart from lack of volume, overall this is an awesome remix. It has that sort of empty, spacey sort of feel to it. A bit scary when the brass comes in at full volume.
Cool idea, and it works too! A few tips though:
1. Everything needs a bit more 'oomf', especially the lower guitars.
2. With the lead guitar, it does sound a bit techno, which is cool, but probably stick to either guitar-sounding or techno-sounding, not both.
3. There's something about the drums that I can't quite put my finger on...
But yea, this is really good stuff, keep it up!
Thanks for the review... but it's the Garageband instruments you must be complaining about hahaha.
