It's music, Bitch!

What is everyone listening to? I'll probably flood this with endless amounts of EDM, diversity would be nice!

I'm sort of in a music slump right now. I feel kinda like the new wave of bands popping up are all sounding like the same crap, so I've found myself a little behind in the curve or listening to things I would generally snub.

I've been on a weird selection lately as well. More of a variety kick.

Speaking of EDM Dargos..
Here is a track I have just finished (I will be releasing an E.P once i've got all 4 done)

It's all my music except I used a Calvin Harris acapella to help me write the structure and then I will write my own vocals and get an original artist to sing on it.
It's all mixed and masterered, except for the vocals - I have literally just slapped them on temporarily.
Thoughts? (as you can tell it's very Calvin Harris'y anyway, even without the vocals.. kind of)

Nice tune man! A nice progressive style piece.

I do have a few ideas that you might want to toss around. All of this of course is just my personal music preference and opinion, so take it as you will.

The first thing I notice is there is a lot of empty space that you might be able to do something with. Like, When you're getting into the chorus and hitting all those high syllables, add something that brings out the emotion behind the beat and lyrics.

Check this song out for some examples. Listen close as the verse goes into the chorus, and notice the change in supporting beats(or w/e you want to call them). I find that just by listening you can really bring out the highs and lows where you want them in a way that people can feel.



Anyway, I really have no idea how to explain exactly what i'm talking about without knowing anything about composing music. I'll find some more songs that are better examples.
