Bob Sinclar World Hold On Acapella
this track, while a little slow and repetitive at times, is still a total dance floor banger. bob’s vocals are just as good as the vocal and instrumental throughout. this track is definitely a crowd banger as the groove and bass will get the crowd in a trance.
the music video is very much a dance record. it has all the usual ideas to move the crowd. the beat was inspired by “sweet love in disguise” by grace jones and allen toussaint and according to the dj he sampled it after also listening to grace jones’ “papillon”.
studio albums are so overrated. they usually contain filler and a few tracks that are not up to par. (i’m looking at you, drake). the singles usually carry all the work that went into the albums, and as such, deserve the most attention. for the ones with verses, the hook is usually the best thing on the album.
it can take a while to pull together your ideal version, but once you have a selection, you can then mix and match them together in logic. just keep listening back to your selection and checking out the mix over and over until you get a satisfying result. and then you can export it with a name of your choice, either for a master or, if youve still got tweaking to do, you can export a project by dragging the waveform area over the finished mix. finally, you can convert the project to a standard audio file using the export option.
sinclar has admitted to the guardian that he is still not one hundred per cent settled on what to do next. with paris by night only just having come out, there will be more big name collaborations up for grabs, and hopefully we can see some even better stuff from sinclar. maybe then we will be able to say that we have seen sinclar produce a classic.
next, we need to clean it up. its always useful to have a few ideas to choose from as to what you should do to clean it up. you can choose to do things like get rid of any unnecessary noise, like eq or compress. you could also choose to remove any effects that may have been used, such as reverbs, reverbs, flangers etc.
we cant forget the bass! bass drops are an easy way to add energy to a track but as with all bass, make sure you bring it in slowly and build up the energy. its very easy to use too many snares. try to use one but make sure youre using it in a way that its complimenting the vocals as well as the drums. if youre using more than one, try to make sure theyre all different styles.
to finish the vocals, its all about eq. the vocals should be boosted, while the bass should be cut so the ‘hat tip’ to jerry dammers should be clear. at this stage, the vocals should almost sound like they were originally done for the song. save this, then we need to add it to the mix.
you will notice that the sound coming from the left is pitched down, and the right one has been pitched up. put both of them over an instrumental, and the sound is now totally different. the images have been played without sound, but would of course look totally different.
the example provided in this video was taken from the dj academy in berlin. it was done in a club environment, with two turntables, with the sound being produced from a mix of speakers being played from a di box and the sound coming from a master feed.
for this example, i have used three files with the same song, but each being sent through a different processing plug-in and played from different destinations. the plug in plays the sound from one input, through a low pass filter, and then repeats it at a higher level. thus, instead of the sound lasting about 6 seconds, it might last 20.
