    For about a year now i've started producing music , for fun.
    I've worked with trance music , house music , dance music , remixes , and so on.

    Lately , i've made a remix that feels like it needs something , like it misses something ,
    so i'll be posting it here for the purpose of "I want to know how it sounds and how to make it better"
    and NOT for the purpose of fame and "like me on facebook" and such.

    [Please moderators, understand me [​IMG]]

    #1 Remix : La Roux - Bulletproof

    #2 Remix : Black Eyed Peas - The Time(Jo²'s Bit)


    *By the way: For those of you wondering about the name - Jo² is pronounce Jojo , Like my nickname among friends [​IMG]

    good stuff! I've listened to house and other dance stuff for a while and there is nothing wrong with these tunes the way they are. They have all the elements of a solid dance track, my other thoughts - perhaps more vocal edits, stutters, etc... The vocal on bullet proof may be a little high in the frequency table, perhaps just brought a pinch more into the mid range. I love the break downs and build ups, but when they come back in you may need a little more punch. but overall they still sound great, which proggie are you using? also watch out for cookie cutter techniques, and practices, they can date your music. great job though. 1

    I've only really been involved in mastering, never got onto the remixing stage.
    Nice work with this stuff, you should consider trying to do a mix. (and if you do one, I can provide a shoutcast/icecast server for you to use and even remaster it for you :3 - although live mixing is really REALLY hard)

    Also, you should post up more info in the art forum.

    I really HATE house music, but your remixes are really good, especially the "Bulletproof" one. Nice end for the BEP one, it's perfect for a smooth transition.

    I liked your Facebook page yesterday [​IMG]
    Your remixes are pretty good, but maybe you could release another version of the BEP song. At 59-1.01 in the BEP song I don't like the switch of song, it doesn't fit well IMHO.

    Those remixes are wonderful - a feast for the house lover's ears.
    Well done, and keep up the good work! [​IMG]

    EDIT: That original song of yours, the spaceship one- sounds absoulutely amazing. I love the compilation of sounds you used in the beginning.
