this song didn't sound as modern as...

Post by lazywallofficial » Wed Apr 07, 2021 5:17 pm

Hey guys,
I've been a member of Taxi for almost a year now, and all my submissions have been rejected for the same reason:
"this song didn't sound as modern as ..."
i would appreciate if they could be more precise about the "modern" meaning.
if they could tell me why its not modern, i could work on it for my next submissions.
What so dated about my songs? is it the recordings? is it the production ideas? the songwriting? the guitar sound? the mix?
does it have to sound 2021? is 2015 ok? is 2010 still modern or too dated already?
I'm lost, please help.

It's usually a combination of things but without hearing any of the returns in context of the listing and reference tracks it's hard to say.

Things change all the time so ideally you need to sound current and not like 2015 and certainly not 2010. Some genres change faster than others though.

If you post up some of the listings and returns in peer to peer I'm sure you will get some useful feedback.

Mark
