I’d love to hear that.
There are always people claiming ”I could easily remake this with this”...
I’m not really sure their labels would sign your work...
Well, for a start I don't think we'd have any trouble signing to a different label if we were so inclined, given the chart success of our last couple of albums, although we wouldn't be signing to any dance labels, that's for sure. But I never said I could do it, it's not the kind of thing I do. But you can hear that the basic patch being used isn't anything too special. As I said, it's all in the production.
Well, never claimed that, on the contrary I said I only expressed my very own opinion. You’re the one who’s coming to ”teach” me what’s good or not.
You clearly need it. Did you try the Jump thing? Of course not, you're too afraid you might have to change your opinion. Would you like me to do it for you and post the result?
The solo lead you find incredible sounds very old fashionned to me.
Interestingly, I'd say the same about the stuff you linked to. It's the same old krap you hear everywhere. The most memorable thing is that the first one was filmed in Hong Kong (lots of places I've been to many times). It's the kind of generic stuff I'd expect to hear in the lobby of the office building I work in.
Well, the artist I’ve linked, Alan Walker, has been covered a million times, even in The Voice. But it seems you lack the depth and breadth of musical experience to appreciate stuff like that.
Of course I know who Alan Walker and Youngblood Hawke are, it's the kind of commercial crap you can't avoid. OTOH, you had clearly never heard of any of the bands I linked to so who do you think really has the greater breadth and depth of musical knowledge? That you seem unable to appreciate something for what it is shows how narrow your experience is. You've put a link in to The Voice, FFS!
I was born in the early 80’s you know, 1982 exactly.
Right, a year after I bought my first synth. Wow!
But I haven’t stopped listening to what’s new.
Me neither. I just picked up Whispering Sons new album this morning, fresh off the presses, and last week I got the brand new Perturbator album. They are both acts that weren't around 10 years ago. you gotta keep finding new stuff but you're never going to do that watching The Voice.
There are millions of new songs available everywhere ! Give them a listen !
Physician heal thyself. It's pretty much impossible to avoid the shit you seem to be into, you actually have to go and look for the really good stuff.
What's amazing is that they managed to fit every single cringe-inducing metal cliche into one song, in much the same way Youngblood Hawke managed to put every EDM cliche into that other thing you linked to. Spinal Tap couldn't have done it better. If you like metal, try something a bit more interesting -
Or if you prefer something more recent, here's one from 2019 -
As you can hear, music doesn't have to be one thing or another. It can take a little of this and a dash of that and do something better than either, although that last track is nowhere near Die Krupps' best. For that, you need this one from 2014, with the guitars pushed back into a supporting role. It's as cheesy as hell but all with tongue firmly in cheek (I hope) -
