[French House] Djcheesehead - Demo #1 (Name TBD)



So I already have my own complaints with my track, but I don't want to post it yet, without seeing what you guys think. Literally all the leads of the track are from Frank Ocean - Comme Des Garcon, it was a nice exercise in pushing my sampling skills. There's more depth I want to add to track but I've been in a creative rout with it, so any advice on how to push forward would be appreciated.

Some of us can't really offer any advice on certain styles, which might explain views / plays without posts. Just wait for the french house guys to show up and remember that sometimes it takes a while.

Pretty impressive work with the drums/percussion. I also really dug the HP'd scratchy bass build around 0:32 on and that...percussive sound rising up over and over starting at 1:24. The one thing that I think makes it hard for some to comment on a track like this is definitely an area of subjective differences, and maybe a lack of a melodic line to latch on to. Still neat stuff, I'd work out to this.

Not looking at the other comments until I finish listening here and getting some initial thoughts down.



I feel like I'm always Mr. The Genre is Wrong, but this really, really doesn't sound like French House to me...ie; Filter House ie; Daft Punk. Maybe French House is something different now, but this falls squarely into the realm of Techno for me. It has almost no melodic/harmonic content which is always how I've split up House and Techno.



I kinda see after the half way point, that new vocoder-ish element being a little French House, but it's still pretty atonal.


Other than that I think it could be a pretty banging Techno track. The high hat samples I'm not a fan of. They feel way too clean/real for either French House or Techno. Too soft/natural and not gritty enough.



Overall the mix sounds pretty good--seems like you could sneak in some bass elements if you wanted, I don't think the kick is filling that whole spectrum as is (my studio is torn up and my monitors aren't set up properly, so take that with a grain of salt(.


I also agree with @[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
--if you aren't commenting on other people's stuff or at least participating in other parts of the forum, its unlikely people are going to jump right on your tune to comment. And you only gave it a few hours.

The girl is Kacy Hill a former American Apparel Model. She way older than me haha. I chopped samples from a frank ocean song basically the bass is a guitar sample chopped up with certain parts time stretched and distortion added on it all added with a LP filter, but I didn't increase the bass enough for it on the EQ. And then the 2nd part is a reversed vocal/instrument part from the same sample, but parts time stretched as well.

And I'm 20 now.

I'll make sure to contribute more when I have time to be at the computer if that's the case. I'm just really impatient sometimes haha.

The only reason I called it French House was because I was listening to a lot of Homework (Daft Punk LP) and just drew inspiration entirely from that album, so I was like fuck it imma call it french house. And you're not wrong about the bass, I think I left the kick a little too weak in hindsight but I can fix it up once I go back to the track.




And this is the sample originally used:
