Hi @DisparateSouls 

 

Thanks for your submission. We have listened to your tracks but will give you feedback on "True Love Never Dies" as it was our preference. 

 

This song is quite well written. The idea of using organic sounds is great. However, needs some production corrections.

 

Most of it has been recorded live and in some cases the vocals and the guitar accompaniment are out of sync. To fix these issues, we usually use Melodyne. It's a great tunning tool but it also offers the opportunity to align different sound files. Give it a try! The guitar needs a bit of EQ too.

 

The arrangement in general is good. Adding strings to a song can be very powerful and our advice here would be to use different panning. In a song like this, we would pan Violin 1 hard left, Violin 2 halfway left, Viola halfway right and cello hard right. This will create more space in the centre of the spectrum and not clash with your vocals.

 

Finally, the piano could add some bottom end to the song. Maybe adding lower octave accompaniment would round up the track, especially when the strings come in. 

 

We hope this is useful. Get in touch with a producer and collaborate as having an extra pair of ears always help! Send us some more music once you have new edits.

Hi @EssMusic

 

Thanks for your submission. I believe you submitted another track not long ago. "For You" sounds very good. Much better than the previous single in our opinion. The production and the topline are very good and we are happy to include that to our playlist this week.

 

Keep submitting and share the list with your followers! 

 

Peace,

 

RD

Alternative/Hip Hop inspired Pop track. This is my first single so am interested to see people's thoughts!

Hey @KeirEasterbrook 

 

Thanks for your submission. Your song "Vertigo" is quite insteresting. I wouldn't say it's a HipHop track tho. The sound is quite fresh - where are you based? 

 

Your track has been added to "Not So Rough Choices" and will be live on Sunday.

 

Cheers,

 

RD

Hey @RoughDiamond

Thank you for checking out the track. I draw some musical inspiration from Hip-Hop artists like Kanye West or Kid Cudi but I'm not sure how much that's reflected in this particular song. I'm based in the South of the UK! That's great, thank you so much! Appreciate it a lot :)

Hi @KeirEasterbrook 

 

That's fair enough. Follow us on IG (@roughdiamondmusic) and send some more music to our A&R. Ask for Rob and Alex. We are based in London so would be good to find out more about your plans as an artist.

 

Best,

 

RD
