It's taken me a good while to get fully moved into our new home, but without further delay comes the final mix in the Lucid Dreaming flood, a pop/electronica vocal arrangement from ProtoDome. Stevo writes:
"ProtoDome has proven himself a master of short, happy, chiptunes-heavy songs, and he continues that streak here. This song is one of his longest to date, features great vocals and appropriately cheesy lyrics. There were many songs on this project that added vocals to sources that originally had none, and this is one of the best. If the rest of the night is going to go like this, I’m glad it just got started!"
I agree, LD is definitely an album that fully embraces vocal mixes, and this track from Blake re-enforces that emphasis with sugary-sweet auto-tuned synth-pop/dance that's got enough space for a soaring synth solo, shimmering production, and lyrics/phrasing that channel a modernized Erasure or Pet Shop Boys. Judges actually weighed in on this one; Deia writes:
"Suuuuper fun track. Proto, must everything you do be so cheerful? Really love the textures you have, it's all very bright. Autotune doesn't bother me like some, so I'm cool with this."
"It's easy to say that anyone can sing given autotune, but I think things like enunciation and phrasing still can't be perfected in post (yet). Proto's vocals are great here and are reminiscent of Lee Brotherton in Dreams of an Absolution. Plus for the vocals haters, this song still has those jazzy chords and catchy beat that ProtoDome loves to use and we love to hear."
Indeed; the way certain little passages fleetingly segue into a jazzier style does accentuate the hook & keeps you guessing and engaged. Every single one of our NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming mixposts has provided insight into what the album's all about, and I really do think it has a distinct & unique style, with a high percentage of vocal mixes, a musical aesthetic that allows for diversity while jiving completely with the world of the game, and interwoven themes that create interesting musical links between the tracks. While its approachable pop tracks might initially suggest ear-candy, everything goes much deeper than that & has been really well thought-out, carefully crafted, and imbued with plenty of heart & soul to match its considerable musical bling. Congrats to Blake on a great pop vocal track, and to Stevo & ALL the ReMixers, visual artists, & others who chipped in to give NiGHTS a truly amazing anniversary gift!

It's already dark outside
The lamps begin to glow
I'm gonna stay with you all night
Until the sun begins to show (Oh)
But the glare from the city lights
Are dancing on your face
The mood is right, our dreams alive
It's you I can't replace
It's getting way past twelve
And the night has just begun
Just listen to your heart
You know that I'm the one (Oh, baby)
Go, take a look outside
The landscape shimmers blue
I'll give you the moon and stars
You make my dreams come true
Can't be without you
Can't you see?
I need you tonight
Oh, baby, I want you right here with me
Our lips are getting near
Your eyes are locked to mine
Our bodies move in closer
Go slow and take your time
Let's slip our hands together
And dream the world away
I want this night to last forever
With you I want to stay
