FAILED: D.H.T - Listen to your heart (HAP Mix)

Hey guys, I think it's time I start to acknowledge that some song, I just won't ever be able to finish. I hate this. It's almost like this curse I have; I make a song, It's just great, I POST it on the internet, and suddenly, I lose interest, or something in my life happens, or I get writers block. When any of those things happen, I decide to take a break... and if I dont come back to finish the song, it was just not meant to be. 

I think I should be sharing some of these unfinished songs with you guys. I'll post them... Hopefully that would give you an idea of what I had going and where I FAILED.


I am truly sorry, I tried, I really did. This song, I made about ... eeh, around 2005/2006, around the time DHT actually became popular. I was so into the song, It was easy to get into making this song. I stared on it and ... Oop ... as it turns out, 2005/2006 was one of the most difficult times of my life. I left everyone in Florida, went to LA with NO SUPPORT FROM PARENTS and ... it was just hard doing things by myself, with no support? I look back at those times now and I can not believe I made it this far.

This song was something I worked on because one of my friends from college loved the original. She actually let me stay at her place rent free in LA. The least I could have done was made her this song ahahaha.

What made this a true FAIL was, at the time, I was on the go, so everything was done on a Laptop, a laptop which later had it's audio 1/8 headphone jack broken (FYI don't buy a sony viao it's a terrible quality product). At that point the laptop became useless... and was later destroyed by my hands. Ooh yea, completely destroyed. I can not describe to you how liberating it is to destroy something that is taunting you for the longest time, as far as I'm concerned, that laptop was EVIL! ... erm ... I mean, I lost all my saves that were in that laptop. So I believe I will not be able to recreate the same song ever again.

So enjoy it for what it's worth.

(This song was made in cubase SX2, I used a Korg electribe SX to make the drum patterns in battery. Mostly everything is vengance vanguard.)

If you find all the files to this song, would you finish making this song? This was a hard trance song, I really wouldnt know where to begin if I picked it up now. The answer is no.

I update EVERY DAY!

But not here, I have a twitter I use on a constant basis. It's mostly to keep in touch with friends, but I POST A LOT OF MUSIC ON TWITTER. It's mostly demos, tons of demos. Like right now, I remixed a song, the link is on my twitter

Sometimes I need help, sort of advice, I need people to maybe listen to a song and tell me what they think. If you are interested, follow me.

I do talk about a lot of personal stuff so keep that in mind.

I also have a facebook. Search for Haroon Piracha. I'm the only one living in LA.

Now this isn't to suggest that I wont post here anymore. I just make little tiny updates. Keep in touch.

Anyways, that is all.

Oceanlab - Satellite (Hap Mix)

Another song I posted, i sware I remember posting! 
This is one of those songs with original vocals! Used with permission! it's way different, and way original form the original? Hear more man!
This is a song I made about 2 years ago, it was actually inspired by a photo of ... well I think it was the earth, and a moon forming. I called the song "New Born Earth and Moon". Believe me, this was one heck of a picture.

Eventually, I got my hands on the Vox of Oceanlab's finest song. The vocals were clean cut and perfect. All I had to do was mix it, but to what? Aaah, this song! It somehow went perfect with my Earth song. I mixed in the vocals and before I knew it, I had a hit.

It's a great song, with great vocals; you would not be smart to miss this song!

BT - The Great Escape (HAP Mix)

I sware, I posted this, This was posted! I remember doing this!
No matter. So people were asking where the great escape BT song is that I did a while ago.... It was originally a 3 minute song, A chillout version of BT's The great escape. It's now a full song, I eventually found time to make the song into a whole actual finished song. It should sound totally different from what the original sounds like. I changed the cords, wored out really well.

BT a really nice looking guy and all (seriously, they dont call him the "prince of dance music" cause of his skills :p ) but, he's WAYYYYY too obsessed with his kid. It's one thing to dedicate music to your friends or loved one, it's a completely different think to actually force people at your live preformance (who might I remind you didnt come) to view hours of video of your kid (walking, dancing, taking a poopie) at your concert. Seriously though, I come to a BT live to see BT, not BT's obsessions, and I'm never making a mistake of going to another one of his live again.
