Welcome back everyone! This is Dan once again. For our second preview for the Insomnia Music Festival, we bring you a track entitled “Unleaded” by DJ Feel Real!
This song is pretty cool. The beauty in this track comes from the simplicity demonstrated in this instance. There are different layers to this song that develop over the course of the entire track. It starts off with a echo-y voice sample paired with a light drum sample part. The more you listen to this song, the more layers get introduced, and this song blossoms into a sweet and simple EDM track.
The drop in this song is huge! Literately the equivalent of doing a cannonball into a pool in the summertime. This was one of my favorite parts of the song. The bass sounds great. It’s big and makes you move. I also really loved the synths that were present during this drop/chorus. It was a unique texture that paired up really well with the bass.
Overall, I really enjoyed this track! The verses were spacey and mysterious, while the drops/chorus parts were big and unique. There are some great sounds present throughout the whole track. As I mentioned before, my favorite moment comes with the bass drop paired up with the synths. It’s a beat you just can’t help but love! Definitely take a dance break with this song.
I like to hear from the artists or bands themselves for a preview post. Especially since I’ll be seeing DJ Feel Real this upcoming weekend. I like hearing another voice talk about the song and the festival. I reached out to DJ Feel Real and he was very kind to take some time out of his day to answer some questions for you all! Enjoy.
Musicbeards: How did you come up with this song? Was there any inspiration for making the track, or did it just come to you?
DJ Feel Real: “There really was no inspiration behind the track. I just wanted a fun and interesting track that had a different kind of feel to it.”
Musicbeards: Describe your writing and or recording process behind this song.
DJ Feel Real: “I just sat down one night and played around with a vocal sample I had and “Unleaded” was the final result.”
Musicbeards: What are you most excited about for the Insomnia Music Festival?
DJ Feel Real: “I [am] most excited to be playing alongside Dj Marbles together as TR!CK D!RTY this year. I met him in person for the first time last year at Insomnia 2013 and we decided to join forces and create the duo TR!CK D!RTY as a chance for us to bring a different vision to the way we DJ and Produce.”
Musicbeards: Anything you can tell us about your set for the Insomnia Music Festival? What can people expect from your set?
DJ Feel Real: “I can’t really describe what my set at Insomnia is gonna be like since I don’t even know. I usually start off with creating a familiar but different live edit to raise the energy and work from there. I’m a huge fan of trippy sounds in my sets, so there will definitely be a weirdness to it. I do know I’ll be dropping some new tracks I’ve been keeping to myself.”
The 2014 Insomnia Music Festival takes place this weekend, June 20th and 21st at the Champion Speedway in Owego,NY. Each night starts at 12am and goes until 6am. [A very fitting name for a music festival at night]. If you’re in the area, definitely come on out to the event and see some great DJ’s and producers perform, including DJ Feel Real! We will be there covering the festival and we are very excited for it. Until next time, have fun and stay safe everyone!
