(Home) Before the Street Lights Come On

Just a Funk/Jazz/12 bar blues Jam, if you have three minutes and need a smile. My oldest loves it and we've had a blast today dancing, so there. smile

Three .sgu's were utilized to get all I wanted and the resulting tracks set to DAW (Reaper).


Harmonically, this is built off of 9th chords (the 7th chord's jazzier older cousin). There are two separate bass-lines playing at the same time. One is playing off the chord roots, the other off the 7ths. Other than that, I just took what BIAB gave me. My "producer hat" went on early as I was loving everything that came out.

Part of what BIAB gave me was a kind of glitchy ending (massaged a little in DAW) that reminded me of scurrying home, each to his/her own house, which inspired the title. The Streetlights coming on was the deadline for being back inside when I was a kid. It was kinda unfair because we never knew when they were going to come on...but none of us had watches, so if we ran in out of breath, there were usually no repercussions even if they were already glowing.

Another part that came out was stacking two separate performances of the EP at about mid-point. Maybe it's a bit too virtuosic-sounding, but to my ears, since both versions sound like one hand play, it works. And if it doesn't, I don't care. It's fun.

****** Song Summary *************

Key=C , Tempo 100, Length (m:s)=1:36

I think that 2348 2-part funk horn section is my favorite RT.

Mixed in Reaper with mostly PG reverbs and Izotope plugins. Mastered with the modern funk preset in Ozone 9.

Enjoy, if possible.

Cool! The song builds and goes interesting places, and I enjoyed the trip.

Nice mix, well put together, and every instrument fit well with the others.

Easily enjoyed, thanks! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Tangmo,

This is excellent, really excellent.

What grabbed me first was how you've used the panning stage to create interest and movement. I listened on external speakers and this feature of the production was stunning. It seriously hypnotised me.

After I finished listening, I read through your production notes. Using two basses was a genius touch! I'm very impressed that you managed to do this and obtained such a clean sound. Low frequency audio wave clashes can easily arise when working in the bass region but you avoided them! Incredible.

► Lively
► Entertaining
► Vibrant
► Delightful

I enjoyed my listen a lot!

Wow! This is really great. The vibe, groove and mix is outstanding...

Sounds like it could be a long lost Rufus track from the 70s.

Absolutely loved it!

Hi Tangmo,

Nice result with the realtracks used. It is well arranged. The spatialization of the sounds is impeccable. The whole gives a very pleasant result to the listening. Well done.

Wow! That was super cool and expertly produced. Everything is crisp and clean in the mix, and I like stereo panning as already has been mentioned. I've got this cranked on my studio speakers as I am listening a second time. Love it.

Tangmo:

Really digging the vibe right out of the gate. Those bass lines are infectious—a dancing fool’s dream! That kick in with the horns at 0:58—very cool. And that guitar work starting at 1:58—killer! Excellent production throughout out—terrific and imaginative mix. Great stuff!

All my best to you,

Deej

Cool but the Rhodes spinning across the headphones didn't really work for me.
I THINK I'd have EQ the two basses rather differently from each other to avoid a bottom end build up - the kick drum doesn't seem to have much space.
Very lively jazzy jam.


Cheers

Whoa! Would've commented 10 minutes ago, but I couldn't type while dancing. I listened 3 times --one for each SGU. Yes, I use that method often to get a couple more players into the mix. Utility tracks are great for that, too. Love that older cousin. Ha that ending is quite creative, and it makes me envision the "we all fall down" on the dance floor. There sure is a lot in the mix, yet you mastered it so that no one is missing --I think.


Enjoy whatever happens!

This is a high-energy musical blast.
I loved your selection of RTs, particularly the electric pianos, the talk-box baritone and the two-part funk horn section.
The production is first-class.
Great work,
Mike

We agree with the oldest ... FUN!

Janice was dancing around the kitchen baking and listening to you on her buds.

The complexity of this, i.e., the mashup aspects, is a bit overwhelming as mixing that many tracks is WAY above my mix pay grade.

But you made it work and work well.

Most creative!

As Janice said, "more please!"
