Rahim: Good morning dear friends of Youtube’s best channel, the world’s best channel and the most beautiful special guest has recovered from her cold. She’s feeling better now thanks to a lot of tea. Dana: I really did drink a lot of tea. Rahim: …and a lot of pug cuddling helped as well. (Dogs can get sick through the same bacteria humans get a cold from, so please don’t infect your cute doggo.) Welcome back Dana Rolle. Dana: [a lot of thank yous] Rahim: And you brought some new songs, or old songs. Yesterday I’ve reacted to DEAN without you, a very unique song. I don’t know wether you’ve watched the video. Dana: I did, I did… Rahim: It was very interesting because the song was quite minimalistic and the video itself didn’t have that many views and neither did the video on my channel but I still thought that the song was interesting (Me too. Go watch that video.) But today, you’ve chosen SEVENTEEN, with our Korean ‘SEBEUNTIN’, ‘eu’… That video btw, greetings go out to Henrik and Verena, we’re still working on it. There’s one hour of footage and we want to make it as entertaining as possible for people but you should also learn something. It’s difficult. I’ve even edited other videos in the meantime but I’m working on it now and then. One day there will be a video where you can learn Hangul with us. Rahim: But now, SEVENTEEN with ‘Getting closer’. Dana: I’m curious. Rahim: Time has been stopped. [music] Ok, wow. We’ve already listened to the first half now. There’s a lot going on with sound effects sprinkled throughout the song but also these short vocal parts…wait we’re at 1:14… These are kinda like ad-libs, short vocals that just got put inbetween other sounds. They also work as doubles. There are multiple voices that are really well harmonized. It almost seems like a wall of vocals. Really cool as a technical detail an because of the rhythm it feels like a dialogue (like call and response maybe). Really cool…Other than that, in the intro they already set up a lot of the sounds you will encounter throughout the song. Dana: If the internet works… Rahim: Also, what imitates or substitutes the snare in this song. That’s not a real instrument, in the sense of drums but… It is a snare but there’s something else echoing that could be sound design or something Foley related, like a real sound. I don’t know wether… Rahim: …it’s like something breaking, maybe glass… Dana: Yeah, I had the same thought, I don’t know wether it was later on or has already happened in the song but I also heard glass shattering. Rahim: Something like that. There’s a lot going on regarding sound design. Dana: I didn’t hear it right there. Rahim: I’m talking sbout the snare. Rahim: There’s something echoing that sounds like glass breaking. Dana: Later on… Rahim: Right, it’s also somewhere in the track again. Maybe we’ll hear it in the 2nd half. Yeah, it’s a bit earlier than the snare but the sound design is really well done. I think it might be the same sound but when you layer it you can’t hear it that well anymore. A lot of vocals again, one in the background that’s laying down a basis. They really perfected the vocals. He has a Berlin hoodie. What brand is that? Dana: I have no idea. I don’t know tbh. I’m also trying to find out what’s written on the jacket. There is something on there. Rahim: Maybe it’s Thai. [music] What you just heard in the background was built out of voices as well. Dana: It reminds me a bit of…Skrillex…in the old days. A little bit…this one…vocal instrument… Rahim: Yeah, Skrillex did always use a lot of sound effects, not as vocal heavy but I know what you mean. That part with the voices is cool. This part with the dialogue-ish stuff is really nice because the harmonies they are building are really beautiful. [music] That sub-bass is banging. Dana: What is that, like a gun reloading sound? Rahim: Yeah, exactly that. They made a percussion sound out of that. They used this gun reloading sound, dope… [music] Rahim: Sick… Dana: It’s crazy how high he was singing and for how long he held the note. Rahim: But the rhythm as well was really dope. I have to hear this again starting at the c-part. Usually that’s supposed to calm you down a bit but this one was something new and fresh… and really powerful. The whole song could’ve been like this, with the keys which are still electronic and the gun reloading as percussion. That’s really sick. Such a cool idea. I mean we know this. It’s even in German Hip-Hop songs as a snare but having this continuously building a rhythm and maybe you don’t even notice at first that it’s a gun… Again with the harmonies right here… There are several voices that harmonize but also this typical low-pitched voice. You have to listen carefully to notice. Some of you might already know this. I talk about it so much. Don’t miss it! Leave a sub! You will notice how certain techniques get used again and again and sometime you will be an expert in these things as Dana is already. Rahim: She notices many things now. Dana: I hear so many details, omg. Rahim: This gun sound [makes noises] and then the head voice… Dana: This combination is so dope, with this really high, fine voice… Rahim: That’s Skrillex. Dana: Yeah, exactly. (I’m watching this video at 1,5 times speed btw while subbing and this song still sounds so good.) Are there also like claps? Rahim: It’s not your typical claps that have a lot of the higher freuencies. It’s similar to claps though but I think that it sounds more wooden. Those are claps that got edited in sound design to…I also had a hoodie like this once…funny. [music] This falsetto is unbelievably high. [music] Wow…crazy…sick… Wow, I’m speechless. The end was really powerful but I thought that especially the c-part was really sexy, with these keys. (Love is in the air.) Because there’s nothing else. It’s just his voice, main vocal… Just unisono main vocal, the gun sound percussion and the keys. It also sounds a bit like scissors… Dana: I thought of one of those lamps where you pull… Rahim: You could also do that as sound design. Dana: If you cut it… Rahim: But I still think that it’s a gun because later on there are also shooting noises. Crazy! What a banger! This song is going off. What do you say? Dana: I didn’t expect this…this beat and the vocals are already sick but the beat…There’s so much going on but without sounding overbearing or overwhelming you. Rahim: Be careful! There are parts that are kinda sparce, where there’s only the vocals and the kick and snare… It’s not too much. There are parts where there’s more going on but they’ve found a good balance, so that your ears have time to recover. That’s the good thing. They were really clever about this. Dana: I think it’s because of all the sound effects and sound design, like the breaking glass and the gun sounds…but I also think I’ve heard something metallic… I don’t know where anymore because there was so much but it’s so good at the same time. It’s nuts. Rahim: This part, I think… There’s only the kick and the snare and the vocals. And here there are more instruments joining. There wasn’t even a bass. Cool! Sick song! I think that’s it…we’ll just start nitpicking at this point. Guys, I hope you learned something. If so please leave a sub and ring the bell for your boy. That’s me, Rahim. Go check out Dana as well. She just posted a video on sunday where I had to help out a bit because she was on Lollapalooza. But it was interesting to see how you wash your face. Rahim: Evening routine…morning routine… Dana: Have you never seen that? Rahim: Well, it was different, like the mirror perspective and watching it over and over again…but really good products by Kiehl’s. Dana: Do I have to buy you some? Rahim: Dana gave me some samples and I liked them… Well, that’s on Dana’s channel because it’s beauty. Ubntil next time. Bye! Subtitles by Thea, @a.c.laske on Instagram
