THANK YOU for picking up on the Bobby O reference Also Sabrina Solerno, Bandolero, Stacy Q, etc. Makes me happy that somebody got itdrnrg wrote: Foxxie- Gays Gays Gays Disko Warp
Her vocals remind me of the girly vocalists of the hi Energy style of the 80's. like Barduex(Three TIME Lover), Tyrants In Therapy, even a little Stacy Q(Two Of Hearts). Of course, in this song they are a bit faster .Also the soundworlds are very basic 80s style. The bassline melody and lyrical rhyming are pretty simple, but Euro orgasmic. The riff is catchy for its jumpy little beat and I allready mentioned the lasers and explosions. This song would contain many drum roll intros used by HRG Attack and TIME from A melo to B- melo to sabis ect.. and that's always been something I love in Eurobeat. It's just a cute blast to the past that doesn't sound too layered , so I can repeat it multiple x.
Well the song is about being at a gay bar and lusting after the men there. So I'm sticking by my titledrnrg wrote: I also don't care for the title. "Guys Guys Guys" would have been better. and you are right about the production levels, but again, I think it was meant to sound that way. very basic and retro.
Rayo Light is a female singer.drnrg wrote: Rayo- Light- My Number One Disko Warp
As much as I'm enjoying Disko Warp's songs; I would have to say that this Rayo- Light one would take the most TIME to get used for. Its still a good song.Is it a male singing? The melody is a different story. I even like those Asian style keys in the break. What I really love about you guys are your soundworlds. Your intros and the laser effects above all.
Not to hi-jack the thread here, but thought I'd share some thoughts on this. I'm not speaking for the project here, it's really up to Nick's discretion, but in my personal experience it's no longer worth the trouble and money to do physical CD's for small releases like this. It's REALLY expensive to put one together, and even though a handful of us wish to have a physical copy with liner notes etc, we're in the minority - the truth is that 99% of the buying public have moved on to digital downloads and abandoned the physical format completely. To do a properly manufactured/printed/replicated CD like something you'd get from SEB, your minimum is going to be 1000 pieces, which runs around $1000-1300. A release like this is really only going to sell maybe a few hundred DIGITAL copies. You could do a short-run duplicated disc in a minimum of 100, and I've done that on Disko Warp a couple times, but they are in fact CD-R's, so they won't last forever, and don't look as nice, and even that is going to run around $300-400 to put together something nice looking. Plus when you're offering CD quality downloads from a source like Bandcamp, it's that many fewer people buying your CD. Sadly, when you do the math it just doesn't seem practical anymoredrnrg wrote: and for the sake of argumeant, I know mp3 are the in thing right now, but I would really be interested in a physical cd when its in the works. You know cover sleeve and all the works.
I'm not happy about it either, but that's how it goes, unfortunately.
Japan is the exception, not the rule - the Japanese music industry has kept their CD industry relevant by refusing to embrace the digital download standards of the rest of the world (itunes plus, non-drm, 320/flac alternative services). Plus this may be a difference of consumer preference in that country.
Just my 2 cents and industry experience
