"For the Masses" - World Funk Synth House (edited)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Some changes, better bass, better horn section (I think?) and fixed some video sync problems!

Many thanks for the helpful feedback! - I would sincerely take on board any critiques,  especially the mix -  help me make this better? 

Please bump the settings up to 1440p if your connection can manage?  

There is a  Bandcamp or Soundcloud link below the video if you don't need the visuals.

thanks!

-Tom

Nice Tom.
This is different from other stuff I have heard from you.
Bassline is funky!! Clever lyrics.
Love the 04.37 bit...  lol

We all paint very different pictures..
To my ears the synth verb (horns) seems not to fit into the overall picture when it first comes in and seems a little tinny. (2.52) and I am hearing some distortion in the composition.  (just my ears).

First off - excellent mix - it sounded really good through my headphones.  The song and video were a wild ride - and I really enjoyed your lyrics as well.

Nicely done - this is a fun listen.

So tom, you must be from the NE, no?  haha.   Lyrics are clever, it'd be cool to get a chick to kind of sing-say them ala blondie.  Glad to see you can draw from different creative milieu's.

Sounds great on my cheap headphones.  I really like the bass and the break that starts at 3::20.  Lyrics are fun, too.  Well done!

Very clever, I like it. The mix sounds really good, the funky guitar is cool. The horns are pretty jarring, maybe just too loud. I do think you could find some better sounding horns. Over all great effort.

Love it Tom, absolutely love it.  Great Mix very cool Video at 1440p.

Are there any issues, probably but I was enjoying it so much I was not bothered by them. :)

Tom . . . so much fun ! . . . perhaps more fun than humans should be having ? Oh well, we deserve it after last year. A few days ago I just listened to the music, then tonight had a go at the video . . . and I must say I got the same sense, as with many of your other projects online, that I would be coming back again and again for many other listens and viewings, you've got a lot going on in this one, just excellent.

Now those horns, why so much louder > dang, there's the phone . . . likely my neighbors calling to complain about the volume (again)

The whole thing seems a very interesting poke at modern society. Your educated "rap" is unlike any other I've heard . . . and I knew it was you singing when you went for that low growl around 2:24 . . . reminiscent of your other projects. Sounds great on my big speakers, my small speakers, and my studio headphones, you've mostly got it covered . . . except for the dreaded Ford Ranger stereo highway test, I'll let you know how it goes . . .

YES, Bloody Brilliant Tom, Bloody Brilliant.

I'm the only one who has "liked" and "commented"?
This is a tough room man, a very tough room...

one little suggestion; if I was co-producing I would add a little hesitation after each "stop",
so it doesn't come back exactly on the beat.
A "pregnant" pause if you get my meaning...

Tom, like...wow! Terrific production around your very funny and clever lyrics. Excellent pacing too.
Pretty much have to watch a couple or more times to pick up on all the bits. Thanks for posting this. I really enjoyed it.
