TAXI #Y180814EH - References are not electro house.

Post by sermusicusa » Sat Aug 04, 2018 12:35 pm

The tracks below are not Electro-House. They are more Standard House beats than electro-house. While they may contain an element or two of electro house sounds in them, that doesnt make them electro house. Or if the BPM is higher than doesnt make it electro-house.

Below the references in the listing it does say HOUSE tracks, but there is a difference, there are many styles of house music. And these are not electro house IMO.
This is electro house:

Big difference in sound. So I am assuming who ever listed this wants more HOUSE and less Electro-House, less BUZZing bass and less SAW synths. Cuz I dont hear those in the provided examples, and those are staples of electro house. So Its important to classify music properly. In fact the Jorga Smith sounds like sped up Deep House If you were to slow that down you'd get a nice loungey deep house track.

Thank you for your attention.

CONTEMPORARY ELECTRO HOUSE INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a hard-working Music Library that’s constantly pitching and landing cool placements in TV Shows.

This hard-working company has just started asking for music from TAXI’s members. It’s very unlikely that you’ve got any music in their catalog, so this is an awesome opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a relationship with this company! They want Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the general stylistic wheelhouse of the following references:

“One Kiss” by Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa:

“Hideaway” by Kiesza

“On My Mind” by Jorja Smith X Preditah:

Although the references have vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only. Please submit fresh House Instrumentals that have great rhythms, innovative grooves, and catchy, memorable melodies. Your submissions should have a contemporary House sound and structure, with great builds and contemporary-sounding synth patches. Adding in some nice “ear candy” will help your submissions stand out, just make sure it’s not so busy that it could distract viewers from dialog in scenes.
