My newest single, Black Mirror, is easily one of my favorite releases yet of 2017. It’s the first deep house track that I’ve ever made, and normally I dislike deep house, but I like it when it’s very deep along with some harder bass elements.

This track was a blend of not only unique vocals, but also about the show Black Mirror (which everyone should see). It’s basically a combination of deep house, dubstep, and bass house – all fused into one wubby track.

Song Explanation

Like I said above, this track is a very deep, deep house track. I really wanted to blend unique styles of dubstep, house, and other genres into one hard hitting yet catchy track.

I started this song off with just a quick percussion groove, and then I quickly jump into the main vocals. What’s interesting is that the original vocals are actually female, and I pitched them down as I felt they sounded better and also fit the deep house vibe a lot stronger as oppose to being higher.

As the first verse continues, I bring a lot of heavy bass elements in, but subtly in the background as I want the vocals to be at the forefront. Then I build the track up, jumping into the first drop.

For the first drop I made a melodic style bass house groove, jumping back and forth between a few different bass synths. All of this was then layered with other deep house/trippy elements, adding to the vibe overall.

Now on the second verse, I had it be comparable to the first, except with the switch of vocals. Like most tracks, I wanted the elements to be the same, but have the vocals be a slight bit different just to make them be right in the front.

After the build, I jump into the second drop, which is a lot different than the first. While the first is more melodic, the seconded is more deep and intense, as I really use a lot heavy dubstep/wub elements to add to the semi dark vibe.

Upon the outro, I then isolate just the percussion, which is a deep house groove blended with a Moombahton groove to make it more catchy and energetic.

Considering this is the first deep house track I’ve ever made, I’m pumped how it came out, especially because I wanted it to be super deep yet catchy.

 

Lyrics

All the things you try to tell me, don’t really make no sense at all.
When you say you’ll always love me, but I don’t feel it when you won’t even call.
I can’t feel it, baby where’s this love you say you have for me, whoah.
I can’t touch it, baby seems like nothing really comes for free.
I can’t see your heart, your words keep pouring down all over me, whoah.
All this fighting, boy we’re high on, won’t you please just come on down with me.

All the ways you tried to hide it, no apologies will work with me.
Instead I’m sitting here crying, wondering why I ever wasted my time.
I can’t feel it, baby where’s this love you say you have for me, whoah.
I can’t touch it, baby seems like nothing really comes for free.
I can’t see your heart, your words keep pouring down all over me, whoah.
All this fighting, boy we’re high on, won’t you please just come on down with me.

Have your say
