As in the mamporrazos programs, it is advisable to recommend to the reader not to try to do this at home . It could be hurt.
The same thing happens in the summer song as in nuclear physics: there are formulas, but that does not mean that the formulas are infallible. And as in nuclear physics, the consequences of a small mistake can be devastating : the line that separates success from failure to make a Dragostea dintei is too narrow.
Well, to start the song of the perfect summer has a basic concept of departure. « It must be designed for as many people as possible . Your message has to be very global for you to understand not only all types of ages but a Spanish, a Dominican or an Argentine ».
Word of Magán, Juan Magán. Over the last decade, this gentleman with an indelible smile has placed dozens of songs at parties throughout the galaxy, especially dancing around , I will wait for you and Mal de amores , in addition to others in collaboration as She does not follow fashions , from Don Omar. This summer, in addition, he has published his four album, 4.0 .
His first advice: eye with language. "We don't want to win the Nobel Prize for literature," he acknowledges without ambiguity, but that does not mean that language should be used lightly: even lightness has its norms. «Using typical words such as beach, summer, sand or beach bar grazes the tacky. The songs that now exploit these concepts are those that do not become the song of the summer, ”he emphasizes. What is important then? «That it has an identifying letter, that attracts attention and is easy to sing, and that is not ordinary ». It is said by a leading producer of reggaeton , a stellar musical genre in summer if executed with caution. «For years they have been interpreted in general by men full of testosterone. I hate machismo and have been very careful about that issue, ”he explains. That said: nothing ordinaries.
Another key issue: «These songs are made to be danced, not to be sung» . That is, the letter accompanies but the most important thing is the rhythm. "In that sense, electronic production is essential today," he explains. «It is in a very high percentage of the music that plays; even pop songs are being produced with a lot of synthesizer and production software , with a lot of sound that is not played live but sampled ». As an impeller of the electrolatino, that of Badalona seems obviously "phenomenal."
Some people hate electronics with the passion with which pineapple is rejected in pizza. Nothing happens, these people have plenty of material to play a rock and roll in the town square, which they would say Tequila, but it is all old: at present, to succeed in summer there is practically only the electronic way.
Third key idea: a good summer song has hooks , which in Spanish means hooks , although as anyone who has based their existence on electronic music will understand, they would say hooks and can say hooks . This is what a small catchy and effective sound is called that gives the song grace. A briconsejo : the current trend is to use resources from songs of the 90s, reveals Magán. «A lot is being done. Sometimes it is for lack of imagination and other times to surprise with an effect that is stuck in the minds of many people ».
Along with the sound hooks, the choruses are the other key element of a good summer song. «It has to be repeated at least three times throughout the subject. It is something that the song itself asks you to have that euphoric moment. Then there is a moment when you tell something and then you return to that moment of euphoria for the second time, which is when you enjoy it the most. The third repetition of the choir is how the song has to end, at the top, and should not be extended any more ».
Many of these recommendations are valid for current songs and for those of 40 years ago, however, the current fashion imposes some issues that should not be overlooked, recalls our Zahori scholar. «Now the songs are shorter», he says, «and I always start with the voice practically from the beginning , as much as I do a short start so that the DJ in the disco can have a foot». This structure, contrary to the tradition of starting with some instrumental compasses that established an environment, is explained by the predominant consumption on the Internet, where the listener generally has very little patience and abandons the song if he does not find a stimulus in the first seconds.
« People want to dance but also that the subject produces feelings; That is why the message must come in as soon as possible and do not go with instrumental nonsense that people see as straw. Magán explains that "three minutes in streaming are even more valuable than on television" and concludes: "We have to get to the point."
It is the last of the recommendations of this party colossus whose talent found its best definition in the writing that one of his daughters did at school: "My dad works to make people happy . "
