HOUSE REGGAETON: Corazon de La Palma

Post by CTWF » Sun Aug 23, 2020 5:01 am

This thread was renamed from: "Is this HOUSE REGGAETON??"

The NEW WORKING SoundCloud link is now: https://soundcloud.com/ctwf/corazon-de- ... aIS25teJsS

Hey Forum Folks,

Originally, I wanted to create Latin Pop, but it went somewhere else. :) Kind of a Reggaeton beat, leaning towards Dance:

Any ideas? A las?

I would say that beat is definitly reggaeton...with the "House" elements.

Pretty cool track. You should add a B section to break it up a little, but I like it.

Thanks for listening, Andre. Maybe you recognized that little, old melody... :)

Thanks for your comment, Ted.

The issue is that no one asked for this track, so I am not sure if/how I will further develop it.

SC suggests #Electronic and #(Minimal) Techno. So, is it "Reggaeton Techno"?? :? 8-)

Yeah Tom, it's kinda weird sometimes to find yourself working on a track that's NOT for a listing. It's kind of a freebee when you realize you can do whataver you want with a song.

That's kind of what I like about Taxi-- sometimes the spark of a listing will get you working on something and then that something takes a left turn and you say "screw it" to the listing and keep following the idea where it wants to go.

But being in Taxi and letting the listings guide you is like growing a tomato garden-- sometimes you need one of those little wire trellis things to give your ideas some shape and support so they can grow upward and bear fruit.

Very philosophical! But I get it.

For a while I was thinking about a vocal song, but I somehow feel it should stay an instrumental.

The more I listen to it, the more I dig it.

It would work either way, but something about that melody is really lyrical and I think it could be awesome as a vocal song. For some reason though, when I think of it as a vocal song, I picture a bittersweet Swedish pop treatment-- maybe with a chorus that comes in with a major key contrast.

I could hear a chorus coming in on Eb major and then you have a lot of options there with how it could go. Messing around with your idea right now at the keys-- hope that doesn't feel invasive--I'm procrastinating from working on a post-rock listing that I need to get working on, haha. But yeah there's a lot of stuff you could do with this track. ;)

That's good! :) At the moment, I just try to improve sounds a little here and there. But I will try some rhythmic/melodic ideas for a potential B section soon.

Never heard of that term before. Something ABBA, Aha, or Roxette would do?

That' s okay, have done that in the past with other people's stuff as well. So, won't complain. :)

I have now panned the claps better. In the little breaks/transitions, I adjusted the percussion, to make them smoother, e.g. with triplets. Then I removed some effects that essentially did not do anything. I hope it sounds very similar, but maybe a tad better. :)
