Jari? Oh no wait that's a console not a sauna...
Should be a computer. Given how much he's on Facebook and Patreon shifting blame on others
Gotta get that other people's money brah, can't get people to give you money for nothing if your situation is your own fault..
Why's nobody here making famous latin dance hits and living the life? lmao
Weird that autotune is bad and immediately means that artist or producer is a talentless hack when used in a specific way, but cool dudes like Anup Sastry literally making guitar parts by copy pasting the notes where he needs them is considered good because his music makes the 00000 sound we like (unless you think Anup sucks then IDK what to tell ya)
I know shit about that guy so IDK what to tell ya. But if you really feel the need to argue I'll be happy to listen to your thoughts about this marvelous piece of musical poetry:
Feel free to use google translate for the lyrics so you can sustain your arguments even better.
You just posted a song you think is stupid or required no talent or anything to make/produce/promote/get in your brain and targeted the lyrics, which I was never talking about in the first place.
This is what a lot of people misunderstand. When I defend pop or dance or whatever, I'm not saying I listen to it or that it's an objective musical triumph (as if such a thing exists) according to my tastes, just that the argument of "well this guy has no talent and makes millions" is ridiculous to make
That song would sound completely different if he was hitting the notes by singing them (in context of that style of music), just like it would be stupid (contextually if you intended to be popular) to have a dance song of that genre with Meshuggah/Devin Townsend lyrics
/end thread right there
These brainless idiots make millions out of the work of their producers, record companies, social media managers, and the like. They're just a face that if replaced no one would notice. That's a fact wether you like it or not. Pop industry has always worked like this but at least back in the day you needed to know how to sing at least.
That's true, not my hottest take
Well generally speaking “fix it in the mix” was to be avoided unless absolutely necessary (according to old engineering knowledge) and prior to the Roland TR 808 there wasn’t really any sub bass in music.
But yes if you want a good electronic track you need bass. Now say you want to press vinyl, you do have to follow certain engineering rules otherwise the record won’t be able to be pressed! (I guess that’s kind of what I was referring to not very specifically.)
A digital medium like CD or mp3 you can get away with “mistakes” that wouldn’t work pressing vinyl or like you said commercial or radio production.
Even then, without a dedicated subwoofer, crossover or a proper soundsystem frequencies at or below 80hz are lost in the mix and are a waste of sound energy.
I do like some Industrial Metal like Turmion Kätilöt! Great mix of metal/techno and quite a show! This might actually be an unpopular opinion too! But probably up Drakkar’s alley I’m guessing...
Just ask Milli Vanilli if you used to have to be able to sing to be famous
It's a cute song. Reminds me of a heavier Rummelsnuff and just as goofy
Man, there's always someone that has to mention them like if they were the rule and not the exception. ALWAYS.
you did kinda walk into that and leave the door open
But you're right, the pop industry, in fact EVERY industry in a capitalist society works by the little guy making money for the big guy. It's just in the pop industry, every once in a while the little guy makes millions too.
They were the ones that people know about, by law of averages there would have been more. There's 'ghost performers' even in metal, both live and in the studio.
Let's not forget Martha Wash and how TWO different bands stole her voice
Why do you do this to me?
Devin Townsend is the Dr Who of music.
Rob and Fab from Milli Vanilli could sing but the record company screwed them. I think it's terrible what happened to them. They went along for the ride but their only other option was to break contract and get more screwed. That's why everyone looking at a big record deal should get a music business lawyer.
They’ve obviously sold out to commercial interests! Can’t blame them really...
