Thanks a lot man! I put a lot of effort into this song, so its great to see a review on this, even if its over a year old. I'm really glad you like this, I've been trying to make more DnB recently but my melodic ideas just dont flow out of me like they use to.

Also, thanks for checking out my favorites as well! yeah rawrthaas makes some kick ass tracks.

interesting

I liked the tempo you got to and the saxophones, then it got a bit freaky :P
the micture of electronic sounds and the piano, (violin?) and the saxophone, an interesting mix indead. I like to close my eyes and visualize it. and i keep thinking of a race of sorts, at one end you have this confident and cocky young thing speeding thrue and the otherhand you have an old and relaxed thing, taking it at its own pace
its an interesting mixture wich worked well.

Unique and Interesting

I know next to nothing about this genre of music, so my review may be a little bias. Here are my thoughts, though.

I really liked the synth that swirled around in the background throughout. It created a nice, ambient backdrop for the piece. It was complimented by the smooth, reverberated sax. I really enjoyed some of the jazzy melodies that the sax executed, and the chord progression was nice. The piano played a lot of lush chords which I really enjoyed. The percussion was the most interesting aspect of this song, though. A whole lot of variety and fascinating beats! The high-speed, energetic grooves made an excellent contrast with the cool background synthesizer.

I didn't like how much reverb you had on the piano, though. It became muddy, and some of the extended chords you used lost their brilliance due to it. I know you utilized the sound effects such as the motor-like sound at 1:25 on purpose, but I had a hard time swallowing it. Some of the song just didn't flow in my opinion. It sounded like a lot of improv layered on top of a constant synth for six and a half minutes. There wasn't really a solid melody at any point to anchor it, making it feel kind of schizophrenic. :P I thought that the abrupt stop at 6:05 was the end, actually.

Maybe a lot of what I said above is simply standard of this genre, and was intentional. It's just not my cup of tea, though. I did find it very interesting, however, and there was some good improv in there. A lot of the drum and piano riffs were awesome. :D It was pretty good as a whole.

You've got a very unique style and talent with percussion. Keep up the good work!

Hey thanks for the great, descriptive review! That's a rarity headed my way...

It's always nice to hear from people outside their preferred genre of music-because I don't like sticking to the sounds commonly associated within a genre so its always interesting to hear "outsiders" opinions.

Heh, I might tone down the reverb on the piano- I sometimes get carried away. I think a brighter EQ might also help bring out the sound more.

Haha, I can completely understand how that motor sound (called a reese) doesn't sit well with some people. It's a common synth used in DnB, and before creating the track it was my goal to intergrate that sound with the sax instrument and make them flow together, one being the evil and one being the good. But maybe they just really aren't meant to go with each other...I dunno, I personally like it :P

I'm glad you brought up the point about the melody- before I submitted this I thought the same thing to myself. In fact, its a problem with a lot of my tracks, I build the support structure and backing chords and just let a lead solo over the top without really trying to build a distinct melodical theme. The last four notes you hear was kinda supposed to be it (C, Bb, D, Eb) with variations throughout- but in all honesty its something I need to work on, so cheers for pointing that out.

Intentional? Yes. Standard? Nope, not really :P

again, thanks for the thorough helpful review, it sure is appreciated :)

Sexy Sax

The beat was ver diverse that synth that wooshed around the back created a great atmosphere that lasted the entirety of the track giving you a bed to play the sax over top. I love the nice smooth feel Dark and light in the same track. You kept everything together very well Nice work 5/5 I'm also adding it to favorites
