Description : Update: So this was the looper tune that started it all for me on this site. Hard to believe it was Over 10 years ago. This tune carries the ethos I bring to music...interesting, always change the genre mid-flight and you won't see what's coming next. Also cool to see the early comments and who is still around as well. (#Feeling retro tonight) Orig: Trance-step tune that changes direction a few times

Thanks, Like static nomad stated I was trying to use all these gneres and riffs trying to make a cohesive sound back then. I have become a little bit more refined now but still have that wild ride side every now and then.

Nice crisp sound. Is the wah drawn automation or are you turning knobs?
Good guitar tone and distortion choices. I like the floaty frequency stuff with the keys. Good song structure, like the movements and their transitions.
Well mixed, nice work.

StaticNomad 25th Aug 2015 04:51 - 8 years ago
Trancey greetings, Cru Dawg.

Your title is pretty much composition philosophy/technique - keep throwing stuff at a track and see what sticks and keep on going until you hit on a really cool riff, fill or whatever.

Anyway: I like this.

Intro has a bit of fairground organ feel. That's what they play on the trance Merry-Go-Round.

0:07 much dirtier and then a bit of a music box type of melody and sound.

When that dirty top line kicks in 0:31, it all comes together, even without that much of a bassline. That is such a cool riff. What is it? It's quite a bit guitarey.

This has some of the dirt of grunge but it's very much a dance track so congrats on bringing those genres together - something I also like to do.

2:50 bongo grooves plus metallic percussion are good.

3:36 another synth with some cool movement and timbre, getting more intense around 3:52. shit building nicely before the next breakdown.

4:23 and it sounds a bit like a DJ changing record. Definitely at 4:38 as it sounds like a new track.

Aha my fave riff is returning but then drops out a little before 5:34 when another synth part takes over.

6:07 bassier synth moving about playfully.

Ending is too abrupt though I know it can be hard to do something else that fits nicely.

Overall: an accomplished piece of genre-merging dance skill.
crucethus replied 5th May 2016 - 8 years ago
Shit, I did not see this one so sorry for the late reply.

Your title is pretty much composition philosophy/technique - keep throwing stuff at a track and see what sticks and keep on going until you hit on a really cool riff, fill or whatever.

Not Exactly as I was very new to this at the time as I did it adn I really had no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it but it seemed to work when I mixed this with that and then with this I would mix that. It's my first post on looperman and one of the early tracks using Acid. It also was the genesis for me to start mixing genres, and that that was OK to do that. I should go back and remix this, but I think I will leave it as a monument like in a museum. It will remind me where I have come from.
mudhoen 24th Aug 2015 21:00 - 8 years ago
This does not sound like trance but is an awesome mix of different music styles. Love the creative blend in it. Nice synth/bass and groovy rythm...
crucethus replied 10th Sep 2015 - 8 years ago
Thank You, there are elements of trance in the second half of the tune. But it really is a collage of style, glad U enjoyed.
theHumps 24th Aug 2015 16:36 - 8 years ago
4 years, wow, doesn't seem that long ago you joined. 2012 was a tough year form me so I wasn't around often, missed it on it's debut, sorry. Pretty neat track. I like percussion so when you went nuts with the bongos and shakers I was totally diggin' it! You constructed it as an evolving, ever morphing, juicy musical audible treat for me to play and enjoy a couple times to get it all soaked in before I could comment.

Still a nice debut, it was new to me today, he. Cool track!

crucethus replied 10th Sep 2015 - 8 years ago
Thanks Wayne, time is a flying bye!
Byleth 24th Aug 2015 15:17 - 8 years ago
Im sorry but enven your intro is great (liking the bottom end sounds) you still don't beat your Ottawa one.

I also enjoy this track since its a mix of many genre with that stategy you can make more favorite since more people will at least like 1 or mutiple part of that track.

finally I foud that funny for the intro to have a cute and innocent xylophone with a beast and a bit creepy bass sound.

like the title of your track keep it going

crucethus replied 25th Aug 2015 - 8 years ago
Hey mon, I know that I will never top Ottawa for you so that is ok. I like contrasts in music hence the xylophone and the beast bass. My total goal is to make it all come together at the end with all parts.

Sup Crucethus, first off i agree with the others. Has a circus vibe ( More so in the beginnning) but an seemingly transparent aggressive dreamy nature to it. (Idk if i can realistically combine those words, but meh i just did) It's transparent in the way it blends together nicely. Love that breakdown by the 3 min mark, interesting and creative mixture of sounds here. Progressively arranged track here, nice work! peace

Hey Steve

Never heard this style of trance before, but this is good, picked up a couple of loops early and at the mid stages of the track that I have in my library, technically maybe not a trance piece in some ways but does have a lot of trance elements running through it, best part of this track I love is the arrangement, the way it has been done, gives you a few different tracks all rolled into one, but still keeps it in one track if that makes sense? which makes it extremely interesting for the listener, which this piece does...Fav'd...Thank you for sharing this enjoyable listen man...Peace n Respect...Mosaic...
crucethus replied 2nd Jul 2014 - 10 years ago
Sorry I haven’t gotten back to you sooner as I don't unusually pay attention to this track much any-more since it was the first one I Uploaded on Looperman. This is more derivative of my style that tends to have many musical ideas, but as I like to explore... how do I weave them all into one and make it coherent? This is a very raw version of my thought process with looping. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
dachopdocta 7th Apr 2014 20:56 - 10 years ago
Very nice track. Kept me interested from beginning to end. Love the drop at 2:35. The effects, panning and mix are on point. This is one of those tunes that you can play in your car while driving somewhere and not be distracted. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

That intro is so great and playful. Feels like entering into a amusement park of some sort.
Nice job on blending different styles, dig the guitar sounds much and it fits nicely with the rest.
I like how the track is divided into 3 parts, all very enjoyable and different, but it flows smoothly from one to the other. Esp. like the second part with the gradual buildup.
Great work mate. Really enjoyed it!

Great intro!!!
But I would not name this trance...
Maybe electro? it's sounds really great!
Nice sound choice!

crucethus replied 25th Nov 2012 - 11 years ago
Thanks TCAS.
It's really more of a trance step tune, but that was not a genre choice for me on Looperman. The middle section fits more in the trance genre, but ultimately I hate labelling my songs as I usually like to not be constrained. The beginning has electro dub-step and indie hipster vibraphone sounds as well as double bass heavy metal drums. The Middle is more trance-y and the end is a coda of the beginning with a more electro twist. Thanks for the comment!

Comments are welcome tho!

About the preview, after the drop will start to another semi drop and with an harder more rawish main chorus part behind. Everything is as good as done now and being checked by demo listeners for response and feedback before getting a last hand at mixing&mastering.

This version's half as long & not as busy. The Synths are Synthmaster, Massive, Dark Keys & Creep Piano. And of course, It wouldn't be a Clickbait Cabaret beat without nine zillion FX plugins.
