    Anyone else had a song on soundcloud go viral with absolutely no explanation as to why?

    This has got 1000+ views and 45 downloads, what on earth is going on?
    Yeah
    Had 300 plays in the first two days or so, then it popped up on a few blogs, pretty cool.

    Started pretty slow but then it showed op on youtube and shit got crazy, 200 views or so.

    Houcemate showing off them great tunes like always!

    Anyways here is what I'm working on.

    This is fantastic, try to bring the main melody in the beginning back during the drop, I think it would sound amazing.

    Edited:

    Alright well lately my threads just get buried with 0 replies, even an album I spent 7 months on got buried, so I think I'm going to cut back on threads for now and just use this. Makes more sense. Hope it doesn't look like I'm complaining - I'm not. I AIN'T EVEN MAD (whoops that isn't funny I'm too tired)

    Well anyways I've been experimenting with much faster music lately. It's not necessarily out of my comfort zone because I use similar techniques but just for a different style I guess. Slowly but surely improving I think, it's weird.

    Sorry if it's too loud



    Honestly if you feel awkward working with synths for melody in that manner then don't force it on yourself. It won't work. Continue exercising in your found sounds style and you will eventually get a sense of melody as you get more flexible with that. I had more to say but chrome crashed so I forget but it made my reply look less blunt. Whatever. Basically just keep up da good work.
    The first half of this track is pure genius, the rest I don't know about, maybe it's just not my kind of music. The first half is loose, erratic, trippy, nice synths and samples. the second half seems too automated and repetitive to me.

    this is good but the vocals are being drowned out by everything else. try to lower the gain on most of the stuff and find some ways to let the vocal frequencies shine through, is that veela by the way?
    It's actually Lights, I've got a bunch of her acapellas from an old remix contest so I mess around with them from time to time.

    Also, if anyone can give some opinions on this it would be highly appreciated. I feel like it might be a tad bit low endy. But I want to make sure everything is coming through well;

    Just getting into beat production, this is basic as fuck but no presets and a sample, so it's a step in the right direction.

    Ways to improve would be greatly appreciated.

    Never posted on here before, so I thought I'd post a trance song I'm working on after not being able to make anything for a while.


    Made with FL Studio, using the Nexus vst.
    I hope everyone enjoys.

    I have no idea how this came from me. I think I had a shower and it manifested itself while I was gone or something.

    You're better than me and you just started


    I just edited it, I'm trying to get better at making synths, none of these are "found sounds," I think.

    Don't remember if I posted this already, but it's been getting some exposure lately on Soundcloud.


    I just wish we had our lead guitarist around to record over it.

    Tried the acapella thing again. Spent barely time on it yet so it's a bit shit, but you get the gist. I'm struggling to fit a chord progression in there too, so any suggestions are welcome.


    EDIT: Now has a better progression. Woo

    EDIT 2: added the rap from boppin' as a placeholder until I find another good one and added some more stuff

    congrats man, you deserve it. Your stuff is great.

    By the way your Holocene remix was easily the best out of all the ones I heard from the competition, it was a shame you didn't get it.

    This track has potential but the main issue is that it's trying to convey two or three different moods that really clash with eachother. The fidgety guitar is a much more dancey funky mood and that synth is trying to convey a trance-like dreamy thing, sounds really awkward. Try it without the synth, I'm well interested in hearing the song simply without that and then going from there

    My thoughts exactly, the guitar brings on a funky 70-80s style but the synth is more 90s-present dream sound.

    I'm digging this! Maybe make the bass more present in the mix. I don't actually know much about rock/metal music, but it feels kinda thin

    I'd just call it ambient and keep the word drone to describe the type of synth. It's easier that way.

    It's a really pretty synth btw
