LINKIN PARK x STEVE AOKI - A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES - SoundReview

LINKIN PARK x STEVE AOKI - A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES - SoundReview | Linkin Park's New Remix Album | Scoop.it
Linkin Park and Steve Aoki released their highly anticipated new single A Light That Never Comes. Fans play a 3D game ‘LP Recharge’ on FB to unlock the song
Gaby Gomez's insight:

This article is a review for the bands single "A Light that Never Comes" by the listeners. The positive aspect was the upbeat music and great collaboration. The negative aspect was the cliche lyrics. Some fans were not too thrilled about the repetitive cliche lyrics and were looking for more of Linkin Park's initial style of music with not so much EDM elements. I personally enjoyed the track  and since I like both styles of music, electro and rock, I found that they complimented each other very well. I think it's good to experiment with different styles of music and get out of your comfort zone musically and try new things.

'The next album won't sound like 'A Light That Never Comes,'' Mike Shinoda explains. / Daily rock, metal, alternative, and punk music news at Ultimate-Guitar.Com
Gaby Gomez's insight:

This article with an attached Q&A video at the end, discusses Linkin Park's new album and collaboration with electro house record producer Steve Aoki. The band wanted to expand themselves creatively and try new things with their sound and different genres of music. This incorporated a lot of electronic elements but still keeping their rock feel to it. Both Steve, Rick, and Mike had a mutual satisfaction with the sound, production and overall outcome of the project.

 

Pros: Linkin Park wanted to go a  slightly different direction and try to incorporate more of an electric sound to this remix album "Recharge", which is their first time doing an entire electro/rock remix album. This could potentially introduce newer fans who enjoy EDM and can get hooked to a new band.

 

Cons: Since this is the first time doing a remix album with more of electro house feel, some of the bands long time fans can potentially not enjoy the sound, lyrics, or production. This could cause a negative outlook on the album and gain lesser support.

I've never heard of this method of releasing new music, but I find it pretty fascinating and unique. I like how the band makes the whole gaming experience fun and most importantly interactive. In order to unlock their new single, "A Light that Never Comes", they must play the band's new 3D Facebook game LP Recharge.  This is then streamed onto the Xbox music  for two weeks and will additionally play behind-the-scenes footage as well.

Mike Shinoda Of Linkin Park Talks Rick Rubin, Producing and Coconuts | Life+Times

Mike Shinoda Of Linkin Park Talks Rick Rubin, Producing and Coconuts | Life+Times | Linkin Park's New Remix Album | Scoop.it
Curated by Shawn "JAY Z" Carter, JAY Z's Life+Times is a digital experience covering art, sports, music, fashion and culture.
Gaby Gomez's insight:

This article is a one on one interview with Mike Shinoda of the band Linkin Park. He is known as a rapper, musician, record producer, songwriter, and keyboardist.  During this interview, Mike explains how the band is changing their sound again for this upcoming album, and going back to their signature sound this time around.

 

He also mentions a deal they have with DELL and how they are working with a new software called Music OS. Logic and Pro tools are able to run through this software and he is able to use this on stage. This was mainly built for touring musicians in the first place. With this tool they are  also able to switch between sounds they want to use and  build set lists full of sounds.

 

Mike has a big role in the production side of the music and is known for co-producing a few of their albums. It was something that came naturally. But also when having to find an actual producer, they wanted the absolute best and that's when Rick Ruben came into the picture. He was very good at what he did and understood the path the band wanted to take. Rubin was also very knowledgeable about so many other genres, which is also another reason why Mike and the band gravitated so easily and worked well with Rick, because they all had that in common.
