Description
This is a collaberation with my Canadian friend "always wanted to say that" Jay, (PrototypeEightyOne). It is loaded with distortion in my recording but I love it none the less. At this point I feel like im insulting the great music that I am singing over. I love the way this turned out. I am pleased to say that I will be buying a mic just as soon as I can afford it. Thanks Jay for fianlly agreeing to record with me.

Lyrics
tell me who's impressed
by the way that you've giving up
did you do enough
no no
baby now I confess
that Ive given up
I didnt do enough
no no no
I picture you in another life
and its okay with me
we had our dance
just go
theres nothing wrong with admitting
that we have met defeat
are you finally hearing me

here we good times bad times
everybody done told be about the signs
this time things will be
so different and they will see
I never thought
that id want another lover
whose giver not a taker
not a cold heart breaker
she's got to be good to me

are you finally hearing me
shes got to be good too me
we got to get along

now i must insist
that you packup and move along
you didnt hear me wrong
no no no
we gave it our best
but we just couldnt get along
you didnt hear me wrong

here we good times bad times
everybody done told be about the signs
this time things will be
so different and they will see
I never thought
that id want another lover
whose giver not a taker
not a cold heart breaker
she's got to be good to me

are you finally hearing me

VOX
Love the opening vocal melody man. It grabs your attention right away and keeps you there. Very cool doubling on the vox 2 .. (1:13-1:20) that shit is DOPE! The recording wasnt aweful at all, in fact this turned out really well. Thanks for the collab man, we'll have to work on more in the future. Really diggin this.

get at me with that new mic dude, cant wait to hear what you can do with it. You lookin at any specific mics?

1:13
Love that part man! Made me smile how good the metric follows the rhythm :-)
Your singing melts great with Jay's track. The instrumental is full of dynamics and subtle details. Nice chord progression just before ending. I like those very short notes that are part of the rhythm (1:23 and everywhere). Great midi programming.
Hope you guys have some more coming!

Funny
I sometimes find myself smiling about what people hear. It is up to me to pick the chorus and I picked that spot for the peak. I have a way of overdoing it but I let that one be as simple "harder than it sounds" as can be. Thanks for listening!!!!!!!

PrototypeEightyOne said 2784 days ago (February 11th, 2010)
Thanks
Thanks Billy, to be honest i didnt program this in its entirety, the strumming is a sped up sample that I warped layered with another sample in sync. I did the percs and sequenced/midi the different synth melodies.

Agreed gaylen killed this vox, and that 1:13 is crazy goooood.

crissew said 2786 days ago (February 9th, 2010)
Enjoyed it
Nice vibin on this track. The mic you have makes all your vocals sound like they are filtered but it doenst sound bad at all. Makes you lack versatility in the sound you get vocally though. A little bit of a rap vibe in places to this song. Cool song

You are...
waaay to hard on yourself. I am listening on a very expensive set of phones and this is HOT especially the vox man (HOT in the good way). You nailed it. Theending confuses me but it might be on my end... Did you mean for it to have no real ending? It stops suddenly is what I mean. I will reload the page and try again.
Peace

Gaylen75 said 2786 days ago (February 9th, 2010)
it is the original
it is a bit confusing lol. I left the original because I didnt want to push the vox to the end and didnt want to mess with the original track. I think it is up to Jay if he wants a change. Thanks for the props!

PrototypeEightyOne said 2786 days ago (February 9th, 2010)
the end
The reason it just cuts is most of what your hearing are 2 seperate samples I chopped and melded as one. this isnt an original composition. Most of what is happening in this song are from 2 audio clips playing in sync. Then I added my own midi/programmed synth strings and layered the percs. It was orignally built for a couple hip hop verses ( most hip hop especially underground just cuts ), but Gaylen was really vibing to it, so I sent it as is. After hearing Gaylens crazy good vocals though it has inspired me to work an ending in and add bass.

agreed gaylen shines on this. he is waaaaay to hard on himself I couldnt even dream up these vocal melodies let alone perform them. What amazes me is Gaylen sent this back to me the same freakin week. It was like a few days later.. Very impressive.

Good lyrics, nicely phrased over a cool backing track. Vocs sound real good to me. Like those strings on the intro. Where's the bass? Am I just missing it on my cheap speakers?

lol yea my fault. no bass. It was an incomplete track, but gaylen and I have decided to further the track more. I'll be adding bass and an ending.

"Tell me who's impressed"
This is great you guys! This track was great alone, as a hip-hop instrumental, but now it sounds complete...your vocals merge so well over this!! You two should pack up and hit the stage.
PrototypeEightyOne said 2784 days ago (February 11th, 2010)
yo
glad you could make it out ms vosh! thanks my number 1 fan :P I couldnt have asked for any better vocals on this track. Gaylen killed it ! Im glad I didnt go the hip hop route.

cool recording...
I like the distorted vox... really adds some neat textured. Amazing vocal performance going with a nice groove. Kudos gentlemen!

Gaylen75 said 2785 days ago (February 10th, 2010)
I agree
the distorion is an interesting element the only problem I have is that I would love it to be intentional. lol Thanks for the continued support!

music that crawls under your earlobes
and whispers the distorted lies that you want to believe, but know you shouldn't. You two did a super job here, creating a piece of art... weird, but beautiful in its unique flavor on the ears. :-) Gaylen, your singing style is characteristically you, and that is a GOOD thing. Jay, your music is innovative and worthy of repeat listens, great work here.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks Eduard you know I enjoy reading your comments and feedback. its always good to see the dragon on one of my songs or collabs. Im really glad you appreciate the unique mix. and to my surprise you didnt beat me down for the lack of ending or bass! :P im guessing cuz its already been said n done ;P It will be added in the future, i look forward to developing this a little more.

Interesting
I had to listen to this one a couple times. I like the industrial bottom end sound of the percussion.

Of course the vocals rule as always! Excellent song man.

the main focus for me was to get the most solid KICK drum and drumline I could. I wanted the drums to shine, cuz it was origianlly a hip hop backing. Thanks for mentioning it.

Wow
A bit of a sudden ending but this is a great collab no doubt. The mix is terrific. A driving bass line would be nice, heh. Man that's a great vocal and great work on fitting it into the mix against the backing vocals. Really good guys... just needs finishing!

"are you finally hearing me'?
Yes! And it sounds great--the distortion is for good effect, not detracting from your vocal tone. Great collaboration--you really came up with a complex and interesting melody and lyric for this piece--I guarantee no one else would have come up with something like this!!! I like the almost-Steven-Tyler run around 2:10!

(Btw, I use a M-Audio Nova condenser mic I got for $60 on e-Bay and I think it sounds great, although you can be the independent judge:))

It is "I think" easy to achieve something original when you lack the understanding of the mainstream. lol I doubt I can make a commercial piece. I have tried and failed so many times. Thanks for the compliments.

VicDiesel said 2781 days ago (February 13th, 2010)
Rap?
the drum sound, and how far in front it is mixed makes this sound more like a rap song than electropop. Good vocals and melody line, but there's something incongruous about fitting it to this background.
