Description : Hey guys! Here's a little track I wrote. With the winter months approaching, I figured I would make my own genre. I like to call it "Ice House" (or Igloo if you will) as opposed to "Tropical House". Though very similar to "Tropical House", "Ice House" differs with its high, icy bells along with dark, driving basses. Tell me what you think! :)

    *puts on a coat and stokes the stove* Now that was cold!! The concept reminds me of the Black metal movement in the early 90's, a very cold sounding form of metal. Damn clean mix, Sounds really good! I've never tried making an edm track, maybe I'll try making an ice house black metal edm one ;) Good things come out of experimentations, proof right here.

    Crikey, ice house is brilliant. I might give it a try, and I'm also curious to know if we maybe could do one together? I think working with you would be a great experience.

    I'm glad you find it as good of an idea as I do :) and of course dude!! Email me for more information! :D

    I really hope ice house catches on. I'm liking it! That intro synth captures the sound perfectly I think, with that touch of digital distortion to give it that crystalline sound. I think there needs to be a club made completely of ice where ice house could be featured. I really love your breakdowns/drops with that offbeat bass. The melody is really cool too. Your mix is nice and bass heavy and I think adding a little more to the high end would reinforce that ice sound. The mids could also be taken back a bit. Some of those pad sounds kind of overpower other elements. I'd love to do your competition too but I'm completely swamped right now. I might do something ice house-ish later in the winter though. Nice work!

    Thanks man! It's the fans like you that will help it catch on :) I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Just a note though, there is no real deadline for the competition ;) I'd love to hear what you can do with a crystalline structure.

    Your friend,

    Well all I can say is if this is an example of Ice House music, then I want MOAR of it!! Your mixing and song structure were absolutely ace, no issues that I could find! That crystalline texture you presented in this one capture Ice House perfectly :P Great work on this one, I'm definitely coming back for more :)


    Reply by skwishfish

    Thanks man!! :) Currently working on some more tracks that should be coming your way soon!

    Also, I would like to hear your input to Ice House! :D try out the competition! Be a part of this movement!!

    definitely has that winterish feel to it. Love those icy synths.
    check out my Igloo track :) for your comp, I made it a while back but I thought it might be fitting.

    Reply by skwishfish

    Hey thanks dude! That's what I was going for :)

    I like it!! See my comment for an elaboration!

    very neat track I must say... the synths really made my ears happy :)

    Also, very curious about the structure of your track. Not a ordinary house track but something else.


    Reply by skwishfish

    Hey thanks dude!! :D

    And as for the structure, I don't necessarily have a particular template that I produce tracks from. I find that pre-structured tracks sometimes get boring because everybody uses the same structure, you feel?

    Most of my music doesn't follow a particular structure like intro-verse-chorus/drop-verse-chorus/ someone who has been involved with music his whole life, I've heard far too many songs like that.

    I'm doing my best to break the mold as much as I can! Hopefully it's working :)

    The synth standing brightly from start to end really mixes well with the changing beats. Nice transtion between 1:20 - 1:21! The lead(?) synths that just joined after that perfectly mixes in the track. What was missing here is that hous-ey feel. I would rather call it as a chill type song than a house. Anyways, your music is great! Keep doing it!

    Reply by skwishfish

    Thanks for the feedback man! Always appreciated.

    Although, I do have to disagree with the missing house feel. I'm no expert, but if you listen to artists such as Kygo and Wave Racer you can hear the resemblance.

    Check out the competition I'll be hosting for the production of an Ice House track! It'll be in the forums!

    P.S. I realized a few minutes ago that your name is just R2D2 backwards...which has given me a newfound respect for you my friend. Keep doing you.

    The intro synth hit is slightly generic, but the rest is very original!
    It reminds me of a couple of songs back from 2012, but I can't remember their names.

    Reply by skwishfish

    Hey bud! Always good to hear from you!

    I'm happy you liked it!! I can't wait to get lyrics to it.

    You should totally check out the competition I'm going to host for the production of an Ice House track. I know it's out of your comfort zone, but I'm sure you can whip up something truly beautiful.

    I'm totally on board with the idea of "ice house." I think that the idea of a crystalline soundscape that evokes the cracking of glaciers and the sparkle of ice is a great one. And when you wrote "igloo" I laughed; that's super clever.

    Reply by skwishfish

    Hey man thanks!! :) I have a few clever things to say sometimes (key word there is sometimes)

    Also, I'd like to see what you've got in terms of creating an Ice House track! I plan to hold a small competition with the production of an Ice House track!

Description : Progressive house I was working on for last 2 weeks (but spending just few minutes per day on this.) It really took much time for mixing and mastering because I used a lot of sounds (50+ patterns in FL)... Tell me what you think, feedback is always welcome. :)
