Here’s to some more night music.

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance

This song was lot of fun to put together. It is actually unreleased as of yet—I first heard it in Kaskade’s set at Ultra Music Festival and knew that I had to cover it. This is the first electronic/dance song I’ve done, and I really enjoyed taking on a new genre. I’m the first cover on YouTube!

While most EDM builds off of traditional scale patterns and chords, more unconventional tones and pitches (think drops and screeches) remain rather polarizing among listeners. If you are unfamiliar with the genre, give it a listen and see what you think! Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!

You can download many of his songs for free on his SoundCloud page.

A little night music

Fans of The Weekly Show have mentioned that videos are often the most interesting part of a post. In light of this, here are three videos I recorded last week. These are songs I have been working on for a few months now. Enjoy!

Here’s to a little night music.

The power of sound
