a nice return to the breakcorey style beats that you got my attention with in your song itskukigoshi.
excellent beat on this one.
some of the melodies seem kind of random. i know you are trying to do something different, but personally i think you don't take yourself seriously enough. you obviously have skills and i think if you would spend more time with your tracks they would have so much more potential

This track rips. I was skeptical because of the wussy intro, but your drum programming is legit. Respect.

Very creative drum programming as usual. I like the strings throughout the track but they could benefit from some release time and the note-off NNA setting. Harp melodies are nice.

Not unlike another track in this round mid/hi freq's clash and distort and intrumentation levels are too loud.
The track peaks a lot and is very inconsistent both in arrangement and musical idea. You've got too much going on and (unlike i.e Dj_io's track) it doesn't work for me. This track is a little too eager... Rythm section and bass needs work, a more concentrated and restrained attitude could be in place cause there's potential here. I hope Im not coming out all negative but this is what comes out on the top of me head! Keep at it...

Sonically and musically this one doesn't work for me. Like Andyray says, a little all over the place in idea and expression.

I love your other rhythm stuff, but this one wasn't for me.

Comment by hcys on 2006-07-31 05:20:03

Level and seperation problems. The strings are way loud, the bass and drums don't really gel, and since you don't develop on your theme, the melody gets stuck. For me, it's a bit too erratic in the beat (even though there are fine moments) and a bit too monotonous harmonically.

yeah the strings get a little old, could benefit from the note off sustain or whatever and probably a key change or two, but when i was making it i sort of wanted it to be like, the "rock" that anchors the rest of the "crazy" stuff or whatever

i wanted the chordal part and the harp stuff to be sort of the foundation of the track so that the drums could go off and sort of solo for most of the track, rather than the more traditional sort of "drums are the backbone" idea

i like for the rhythm to serve the melodic and solo functions i guess :) but yeah i am a crapppy masterer lol, but i liike the sort of home made or diy sound it retains by not having you know, like, a "proffessional" sound

"so that the drums could go off and sort of solo for most of the track"
nice idea. i like it!

Comment by Johan on 2006-08-04 09:45:28

I think the strings are too loud and overall the volume is a bit too high which makes it disted. I get a bit stressed out of the melodies - that they are somewhat random could be cool, but they are too speedy for me. The percussions are the strength in this tune.

great drum programming again!

i likve your drum program and respect your style, also like the idea of having something to tie the song down. i think the intro was too long.
