    Default Contemporary Streetwalker 2020 sound

    Hi,
    I've been thinking about what Streetwalker would sound like if MJ had created it in 2020 and was to release it next year. Imagine MJ´s first 1986 demo with that funky bass line. How would they produce it to make it up to date for the 2020 charts, what kind of sound would they go for and what kind of sound would fit a track like that? Please feel free to name songs that could be reference tracks for the sound/production of Streetwalker 2020.

    Yeah, I like the idea... You could get someone to make your 2020 version a reality. I could edit the vocals to give them an older Mike feel, and the instrumental wouldn't be too hard... As for references? The song is unique. Mike wouldn't be following trends set by the artists we'd have now- they'd follow him.

    It's so amazing that Michael's Hayvenhurst demos sounded so fresh and good that they could actually pass for album cuts.

    Yes, I agree that MJ´s songs are unique. But what kind of sound would fit Streetwalker these days with that typical MJ bass line as the main component in the song? I am looking for other songs that have a modern sound that could go well with a bass driven energetic song like Streetwalker. I have trouble finding songs myself, there are no similar songs of this kind on the charts as I can find so it´s difficult to say. To put it this way: what other current artist, if NOT MJ, could put out a song like Streetwalker today and which sound would they use to enwrap the bass line? Please come up with song suggestions if you have any.

    Listening to Mike's falsetto on the demo you linked... The demo as a whole. I don't believe the sound would need to be changed. That's already a hit! Do you have a longer version?
