    NWYR & Andrew Rayel - The Melody [Armind]



    Release Date (Beatport & Radio Edit): 4th February 2019
    Release Date (Extended Mix): 4th March 2019


    Probably not my favourite NWYR Track but I really like how the buildup seems to use elements of W&W's older sound

    This is how like these ‘big room’ trance tracks.

    the melody is nice, Although not very complex at all. Very predictable where the melody goes. But they added some small variations on it, which helps keeping it interesting.

    Would love to hear Armin give this a spin in the Jaarbeurs.

    Nothing to do with Trance at all. There is no sense of happiness/sadness. It sounds as though they are lost which would explain where their state of mind is.

    Happy or sad sounding is subjective dont you think?

    Does trance have to be one of those 2 moods?

    You can tell when someone is happy or sad and yes it does because Trance is a state of mind. Do we really need to discuss this?

    Same thing as with three drives remixes recently. Armada is doing business on a bad way imo.


    Airbase:

    It has been brought to my attention that the main theme (aka ”the melody”) of the new single ”The Melody” by Andrew Rayel & NWYR is a remake of the main theme of my 2003 single The Scarab - Vagabond.
    The Scarab – Vagabond: https://youtu.be/XnlNaDU34jI?t=195 Andew Rayel & NWYR – The Melody: https://youtu.be/oAuLdNufGqw?t=112
    I was not informed nor asked for permission of the use of my theme for this release. Not Andrew, not NWYR, not Armada has reached out to me in regards to this derivative work. Meanwhile, Andrew and NWYR has most likely signed a contract with Armada similar to the one I signed when signing Airbase - Vermillion to Armada.

    I don't think it's a blatant 'Copy' they just have similar chord progressions, this sounds like a completely different track unlike that Remix of Greece 2000, though this is actually the first official Release of a NWYR Track (if you don't include their remix of Saving Light), I thought they were supposed to be free but ah well

    This is out btw

    The melody (ironically the title of the track) is a blatant copy and paste rip off of Vagabond.

    Jezper has removed his post for now as he's in discussion with the label etc. Those saying Vagabond is a copy of Yahel - Open Your Mind though...well it does share a few of the same notes in the early parts but at most it's possibly inspired by the track, nothing more. It's certainly no copy or rip off of Yahel track like we're hearing with this junk.

    Next we'll have people saying Yahel 'ripped off' John Williams with his Nocturnal Activities theme from Indiana Jones

    Tranceclassics, I dont think I agree.

    I dont care at all about W&W and used to be a huge Airbase fan, so would love to stick my head our for Jezper, but in this one I wouldn’t say its Vagabond.

    well, obviously the melody is similar, maybe W&W indeed used these chords/notes as base for their, but the copying is just as bad as Vagabond sounds like Open Your Mind. Using a track as sort of ‘base’ for your own one is probably a very much used working method, specially for the producers who are technically very good, but musically not so much. (I would say Wardt is one of those, which is not meant as negative comment btw, lots of producers are like that).

    Lets think of it. Mustang was already cheap, a track based on Joop - The Future? They imitate tracks all the time. But I dont think Airbase should now suddenly be praised as the big inventor.

    Then to conclude: I think the melody in all these three tracks isnt very complex. The notes are very predictable. Its sort of the safe choice. Tada ta ta taaaaa, followed by tada ta ta taaaa (a Note lower). Its so basic.

    With such standard basic melody writing similarities are bound to happen.
