    BaoBou, that's definitely a funky one. I immediately thought of Ian Dury & Blockheads... I'm sure you remember. Such a cool understated kind of funkiness. I really like the bass here... there's a lot going on. And it all sounds great too. Nice track.
    Cheers,
    Micky

    Hello BaoBou,
    great very funky song! the mix is absolutely clean and skillful! Likewise the master! You can tell that professionals were at work. The voices are clean and to the point. A really great song!
    Best regards

    Buen tema disco, tiene ese toque especial del final de los setenta y principio de los ochenta, buenas guitarras y esa voz es especial, me encanta como rapea. Buen pista Disco-funky. Paz y salud.

    Muchas gracias amigo! Si, esa voz es muy special, Melvatron es un rapeador (?) muy bien :)
    Disculpe, no habla Espanol muy bien, solo un poquito :D

    From the first note I was hooked! Very cool, the funky music with the cool, modern vocals. There is a crossover feel to the track, this should appeal to a wide variety of music lovers. The woman's vocals were a nice touch too.

    Well done to both of you!

    yea it sounds difernt because its not them delivering it yet the writing is same style kinda like u2 song vertigo every janes adiction fan i point this out to says wow that sounds like they wrote this song the way a song is stuctured

    Yeah, agree there, Vertigo is a fairly straight copy of Just Because. Still a pretty good song btw, people like to hate on U2 but to me they're still an awesome band.

    The vocals fit so nicely over the track. Did you build the track around the vocals or was it just a great match as soon as you laid the acapella over the instrumental? Disco is always super chill, and non-intrusive I think I could listen to a lot of it.

    Ha, the story is funny: I have something like a hundred unfinished projects (that's not even exaggerating), and for most of those I have short clips of say 1:00-1:30, bits that are not terrible but miss something: some spark, some surprise, some twist, a vocal, etc.
    I regularly download some to my phone to use as alarm or phone. This one was my kitchen timer :D
    So when I was going through the acapellas (which I rarely do) for inspiration and heard Melvatron, I knew right away it was a straight fit. Well, straight... I rearranged and expanded the track, cut up Melvin (sorry), added a break, some instruments, the backing vocals of Charlotte, some fresh drums and hey presto, it was done ;)
    Easy peasy lemon squeezy as we say in London!

    More a funk-disco song, with a British rap ethos. you need to do some FX on those vocals which are good and dated to 80`s early rap. I love your guitar work, (as always). here is an idea of what I would expect for FX on the vox

    The vocals are by Melvatron: https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/19311/disco-tribute-123bpm-house-acapella and they have a lot of reverb. That's his choice, and I decided to work with that :)
    The Deee-lite sound is certainly an interesting idea, I will give that a go!
    (The backgrond vocals by Charlotte are "cleaner", as you probably noticed. I generally try not to use too many effects)
    Yeah, it's maybe more funk than disco, but that's my thing :) Thanks as always for your critical thinking and positive advice, it's much appreciated!

    This music....yes it brings me years back....many years lol.
    Its funky and how you put everything together is ..uhhh ik bedoel alles past gewoon zoals het moet zijn om een geweldige track te worden.
    And the acapella is also realy cool.

    Thanks a lot Rita!! It's definitely not perfect yet but I learn a little every day and an acapella like this makes it easier to get to the next level :)

    Here's a very first draft. Let me know if you're ok with that direction?
    https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/233142

    Note that I need to rerecord the guitars which are slightly out of tune, as well as the drums which was just a quick first take, etc etc bla bla, but this is close to what I had in mind for the song - I think it's still you, but with also a bit of me.

    Ping me!

    Haha you were so fast closing it again I couldn't even download it twice for safekeeping ;)
    I'm actually in the studio now, so already listening to it on headphones and mapping out drums, and thinking about guitars, and maybe some horns at the end? I can't go crazy, need to leave your voice be the main star.
    Also I noticed it's somewhere between B and Bflat, but this is the kind of thing Ableton can fix for me. This is going to be so much fun :) yayyyyyyy!

    Can I say here how much I love your new track? I would really really like to play a bit with it, add some soft drums and a guitar towards the end, something like that. I would love to make that a nex project at some point.
    Anyway, beautifully sang, great piano play. You're a true artist, easy to tell :)

    ooooh, funkyliciousness!! hey BB, this sounds awesome! so far it got moving! when I should be doing paperwork & it's pretty late so that's a good sign. You are super talented indeed. I loved everything I have heard here, can't wait to hear the finished result. Excellent track/production, Super! job on the vocals also. Very much enjoyed! Kudos!

    Thank you thank you! The real credit goes to Melvatron of course, his rap lifts the song, and the vocals of Charlotte... but maybe it would be even better with your voice ;) (no slight to Charlotte).

    I might leave a backing track for you (and Melvatron) to play with if you guys want. See what you end up with.

Description : This is a kind of funk-disco-big band number that will make you think of the 70s and 80s, if you're old enough. It has all those vintage sounds so popular in this genre. I tried to maintain the sounds of the time while still enabling some updating. Even if you had never liked disco, give this one a try. It may surprise you.
