You know, for all the complaining people do about rejected tracks, going through my rejected tracks I realize two things. 1. Most of those rejections were fair and I’m glad they didn’t get approved. 2. I have far more approvals then rejections.

Maybe I wouldn’t feel this way if I uploaded more, because I’d likely have a lot more rejections, but there it is. Anywhere, I’d like to share a track I uploaded knowing that there was almost no chance of it getting approved, because it’s not really AudioJungle material, but sometimes you have to say what the hell and attempt it anyway.

All for you (soundcloud)

Yup I got your point. Same thing happened here. I knew for sure my latest track would never end up here but… You can never know! Loved your track man, I don’t know if it was intentional but it kind of reminds me of Beck.

Jontom – “Under A Folk Moon” is a great track! The Dark Side sounds great :)
Thanks man!

I do not want to spoil your thread… But i think (with some sense of humor) that posting what you think is trending now or WILL be trending tomorrow is like shooting yourself. With such competive market, discovering trends is a source of survival. I imagine thousands of authors cloning your style, like Chinese conterfeit :) (i am guilty too). So i think it is better to keep secret :)

:D

I know… It’s like a holy grail. When you discover it, you want to keep it for yourself. And I totally get it. But to be completely sincere, if tomorrow we’ll face another rise of Trance music, I’d probably pass because… I suck! Everyone has a favorite style and I believe you can tell which genre fits the most to your taste, despite the other ones. Of course you can always learn, practice and improve but, after a lifetime spent listening to Blues music, it takes time to reinvent yourself as an electronic producer. And your track won’t sound as good as the other one produced by a guy completely mad about Trance. I’m kind of romantic here… I believe there a sort of “joy factor” in every composition.

I think being in the loop regarding possible new trends should only affect a part of your production. You have to sound commercial, of course, but if your entire production is driven by trends, you’ll be dried up within a year or two…

You can always see this a “gossip” thread whenever you want to check out thoughts and “vibes” by other AJ fellas :D

Aloha! I hope it’s not been posted yet. I’ve done a research but it looks there’s nothing specific about this topic. It could be a good think to do some brainstorming between us.

First off, I know there are niches. Several genres will probably never die and if a customer comes over here looking for something specific, the most popular files will be ignored.

I’m mostly talking about the top sellers. I think during the past year it was all about the uke… Jingles, simple melodies and so on. Now I’m noticing lots of tracks with huge delays and basic harmonies.

What do you think it’ll be the new trend on AJ? Maybe the contemporary piano executing soft arpeggios?

I agree. That’s why I think it might be interesting.

On AJ there’s a commercial vibe going and many uncommercial stuff is kind of “obscured” :) Don’t get me wrong, I like muted guitars with tons of delay but there could be other tunes out there, worth mentioning, apparently unlistenable that you just… Keep listening :)

Hey guys! I thought it might be nice to start a particular “showing off” thread. A tribute to our rejected tracks :)

A song might be rejected for many reason. Sometimes because it doesn’t commercial, other times because it’s poorly recorded or composed.

Don’t be shy and post the dark side of AJ! I’ll start with this one: https://soundcloud.com/jontom/under-a-folk-moon

Congrats man! I’ve had the same feelings when I soundproofed one of my rooms. Being able to make music 24/7 is like paradise :D
