I forgot how long I’ve been intending to do this cover, but I’m sure it’s been quite a while. Anyway, it’s finally here, and right after that contest period (I didn’t reach the Top ranks, by the way, but kokorobeats’s playlist for the entries seems to be getting me a lot of views lately).
For those who are wondering about how I managed to have an instrumental for this, I ripped 556’s added sounds for the remix and combined it with the SM Everysing instrumental. Of course, there was some further work that had to be done here and there (like track cuts and speed changes) to match it with the sound of the whole remix itself.
As for the vocal work and all that, it was the last Audacity project I made on my old computer before I got myself an upgrade. I kinda regret not backing up the project files as I moved files, especially since my sister gave me some important feedback when I asked her for some after I already deleted my files in my old computer. Aside from that, recording the vocals, especially the singing parts, along with mixing them got me feeling the wide gap between my abilities and them boys’ and their producers’ abilities. And I used the 556 Remix because I found the song easier to rap and sing with it (and because it’s got such a fun intensity).
So yeah, while I’m still up for making more music, stuff like that and more got me further rethinking my attempts at making music. So far, I’ve been erasing stuff from my music production queue and wanting to focus more on my vocal performance and lyric writing. I’d love it if I could deeply collaborate with someone in making music too. I mean, I could try commissioning a mixer at the very least sometime, but again, I also worry about how my personality would affect them in the long run…
Now, with all that said, here’s the mp3.
And of course, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated.
