Authors' Notes

Had fun making a break beat and tweaking around with the cutoff/resonance of a bass in the alpha plug.
Really like the TAL elek7ro plugin too!

Hey Hexmode! Glad to see an entry from you :)
This is really wicked... Awesome break-work. A hard & driving bassline compliments it really well. This reminds me of some late 90's Orbital stuff.
What I feel the song lacks is a little more processing on the lead synth, currently it has a really oldschool feel which I think could be modernized more with some filters and still not destroy the vibe of the song.
Overall, really great stuff.
Keep up the great work!

P.S... Why was I not following you on SoundCloud? Regardless, I fixed that now :)

Love how the beat flow, how it repeats and changes. Simple, but really effective main melody, special effects and background sounds. Special thanks for fat chewing bassline.
The track got a point where well-arranged repetitions of well-prepared patterns and effects flows into finished piece of tracking.
Also really reminds of some Prodigy works.

Love bass line melodies like this. Nice synth work also, all the automation fits well with the way you experiment around the melody; you really take it to a lot of places. The ending is well-crafted too. My only critique is that, because of the format of the song (melody + variations / experiments), it seems to not really go anywhere and maybe for that it lacks a bit of soul.

Great organic-sounding beats and groove, very enjoyable piece.
