Nobody is going to hate you for remixing and putting energy in what you like to do @Dutchbeat  :whistle: :whistle: :blackgrin: :blackgrin:  ;) ;)
Sounds nice imo, you know I don't have the EDM skills to be of much help, but as always I love the @Leonard Scaper / @Dutchbeat combined sound!
Nice appregios all over the place, keeping the listener focussed on what's more to come.
Another great fusion of styles!!
Cheers!

I had to google future retro @Dutchbeat   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Future_Retro   Wikipedia had an entry, but, I'm still not sure what it is.  ???

If it keeps you busy and you like it than I'm for it.

I like it a ton! I'm a big fan of almost any genre, and this is a new favorite. It combines a bunch of genres I already love: acoustic, synthwave, EDM -- how could I not love it? Great job, @Dutchbeat , and my opinion on future retro music is the very same as any other genre: there's always at least a few good songs in every genre, even ones I don't particularly care for. Though this, I really wouldn't mind hearing more of it more often!
Hey, it's cheaper than therapy.

My honest opinion is that I find it a bit outdated..! if you listen to alot of the modern dance music you find that they use a lot of intricacies and spaced-out sounds to match the era (in a way). I really enjoy modern dance music because it reflects modern technology and tries to push it forward. I think this style of music (future retro music) belongs in the retro with the old computers and machineries..!

to be honest, i didn't know future retro music existed as a term, when i posted this track

"future retro music" just sounded good and silly to me, and
the thread needed a heading

but...the current music we make all will be retro music at some point, right? even if it we would call it future music, or a new genre, a hot new trend
like....dubstep

"retro" means it is just sounding "outdated" in one way or another

retro even needs some outdatedness for it to be allowed to be called retro

but...it seems, all retro comes back into fashion, you just have to wait for about 10 years (or more)
and future music always becomes retro, if you wait 10 plus 10 years (or more)

so, in the end
we all are making retro music already

right?  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hi @Dutchbeat ,

The question I ask is... is there an audience?

Bands like Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats or the Alabama Shakes are mining from old veins, but they're finding new listeners.

I tend to think it's not about sound... it's about heart. If the depth of feeling and the spark of imagination is there then the music will live. Not for everyone... those who follow the "trend" will be off somewhere else catching the "latest". But for those listening for what sings to their souls time doesn't matter. They're beyond trying to "shovel the glimpse into the ditch of what each one means".

All human achievement will be "retro" at some point. Some, like the work of Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and Herman Melville, were lost for a time and then found an audience... kind of a "future trending".

The real question, I think, is how anything fits into the whole panoply of human aspiration. How much heart and depth of thought does this particular work of art encompass?

Later,
Stan

Hey @Dutchbeat ,

Loving it yourself is the main thing.

Finding an audience these days is a hit or miss proposition. It takes work, money, and luck in various combinations.

Stan

Back from the future ... eh, @Dutchbeat ?



https://youtu.be/SR5BfQ4rEqQ?t=59s





We have this song that people always shout for when we do gigs. (People that know us anyway.) I kind of hate the song now... it's probably the worst song ever. The old recording makes me cringe so we're making a new version of it now. Anyway, yeah, going back to an old song knowing what you know now is kind of a cool thing, sometimes.  :)
