Song 10 (The Topcities) and Song 11 (Revolution)
Song 10 — The Topcities
I recently finished the Arcane TV show and was inspired to make something I feel would fit in this world. I wanted to make a more dark and sinister vibe, using a bomb ticking type of sound as the main percussion. Hopefully, I am moving more towards the type of songs I want to make, which is a mixture of piano/chorus sounds with a dark mid-tempo drop.
I also want to make the intro/verse have more epic cinematic orchestra type sounds with some EDM Serum leads, plucks, and saws integrated in between, while the drop is still the HVDES/1788-L style hard bass. I am not sure if this mixture works, but this is the kind of music I am into as I love trailer/cinematic music.
Song 11 — Revolution
This song is somewhat similar to The Topcities, but with more of a robotic/1788-L influence as the drop has a lot of robotic glitchy sounds in it. I think I am still adding too much in my drops and my verses, so I will need to either remove some elements or work on my mixing for both.
I tried again to use a different kind of percussion instrument and this time I combined something of a stomp noise with a lighter opening noise. I also tried to make the second verse be a bit different with more sounds like choruses layered with saws. I am not sure if it works, but I like trying new things in my music.
I hope you guys enjoy both songs! Let me know if there is any feedback for both.
