I promise to never do that again.
Hi everyone! I have a double (or maybe triple) update for you, so it's all broken down into diff sections. Be sure to check them all out. I also now have -drum roll- a Facebook page! Dj Niamek Facebook Page So anyway, here's all the updates, in chronological order.
Dj Niamek | Blizzard
This is a bit old now, but this track was my Christmas release. Since it's a big holiday, I wanted to make a big song. And so I did.
BIG BONUS FEATURE PRESENT THING STUFF: my very own live flute playing! Melody is all me, no pitch correction, just very, very slight EQing and added reverb. I wanted it to sound as natural as possible while still sounding really damn good, so I worked towards that and it seemed to turn out pretty nicely.
The main inspirations for Blizzard were Oceanlab's Miracle (Above&Beyond Original Mix) and AliasPharrow&Tigger888's Atral Dream. For this one I was really trying to go for a more upbeat but still very relaxed and almost typical type of trance, where at the breakdown you can just let yourself soar as it ebbs and flows over your mind. I don't think I got it to be QUITE that dramatic, but you can see for yourself. Although I'm proud to call it my own.
These two are different versions of the same song, and I just finished it today. Very current update here. (a up-to-date update? NOWAYMANOMGNGJFBGDF) This was my attempt at making a deadmau5-style song, just to add to the already insurmountably large library of such creations out there. I got a few of the chordsets from a certain YouTube video (yes, I had the uploader's explicit permission to do so). Some of the chords in the video are his own, some are deadmau5's, and a few are from elsewhere, but all were adapted to be in deadmau5 style. Naturally I didn't use all of the chords, only maybe 2 or 3 patterns. The other progressions are all my creation.
The key change in this brought about a lot of potential for emotive impact, and I've started teaching myself about and experimenting with different modes, so I was working with those for a few of the progressions. Though I must say, it was a pain in the ass trying to get the original key back for the loop so it didn't sound horrendously... horrendous.
So yeah, a song based off of YouTube videos and chillin. nbd.
OH DUH,almost forgot (but I didn't). This one's for Alyssa ;)
So there you have it everybody, my huge-ass update for today. :3 But let me know what you guys think about all that music, all thoughts are much appreciated.
By the way, there seems to be a troll or two that loves zerobombing my submissions as soon as I put them up. I really, really, REALLY do hate to beg but if everyone else (i.e. you, the reader) could please try to bump those submissions, that would be grandtastic.
