Hey guys,

For the first time I produced a track, started to fool around with it last week.

What do you think of it?!

It was so much fun doing it and I like it. It's my debut as a singer as well! Shocked

Hmm. Same thing. The link doesn't work for some reason.

Hey Niki !

Interesting to hear you do something like this as I'm more used to hearing the jazz you have been creating these past few years.

I thought the tune was good for that "dance" genre, but that the recording lacked punch, especially in the bass and drum parts, and that is what you need to have to be successful in this kind of sound. The vocals were good but also could have been brought up a bit in the mix.

IF you like doing this type of music you might want to look up a friend of mine who is in Munich. He is a bassist named Raoul Walton and does a lot of drum and bass stuff, and dance music for the clubs. He plays with lots of band too like Roachford, Marius Westernhagen, and the strat king Thomas Blug. You can find him on youtube if you type in his name. Anyway, I think he could give you some good advice and perhaps some assistance. If you tell him I recommended him to you , I guarantee a response. I will give you his e-mail privately if you're interested.

Peace, TED

LOL!!! Hey, Niki, it's a start....

I have to agree with Ted that the tune lacked punch.
Some four on the floor bass drum would have made
a huge difference.... The euro techno genra is not
my thing really... But keep at it. Not a bad debut.

As a longtime fan of Jean Michel Jarre, I think this is pretty cool stuff, Niki. You might be the next Quincy Jones!

Guys! Laughing
Thanks so much for listening and commenting!! I did play this song just to some of my close friends, because I did it in four nights and am not sure about the outcome, because it is the first time I did something like that and its exciting new land for me..its so much fun doing !! ..thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I started to do that, because with all the Jazz going on I really need some more down to earth music...I would really LOVE to have people dance to my music. I played in bands where it was more for partying and dancing, but the last gigs of that kind are more than 1 year ago...Some of my "jazz friends" don't like a lot of commercial music, but I'm lucky: I like many different kinds of music! Cool

I know that it should be mixed and refined. Thanks also for the punch issue. What do you mean exactly by punch? Any suggestions? I thought about 4 on the floor, D. I also thought about increasing the tempo a little.

Thanks so much Ted for your offer, thats very nice! In summer I will get me the new Logic Program and will get more seriously into that, because I really like doing music like this as well. I don't know where this leads to, but I always found people to be inspirational who did many different things musically, like Quincy Jones, woof! Wink Glad you like it!!

I think its too early to get in touch with somebody from the bussiness....I want to do it better first...but I would be glad if I can come back to your offer on another point!!!

Thanks again for taking the time to listen and commenting!!!

HI NIki,

Try recording a heavy bass drum and a popping snare drum over the electronic drums you are using in the track and just add it to the track until you get that dance hall thud . Punch is what will make the people dance to what your'e playing. Think John Bonham's drums in Kashmir.

Peace, TED

I thought the track sounded nicely balanced on this Logitech laptop speaker I recently purchased. Not my cup of tea, musically, but it sounded professionally done. Nice job.
