Hey, this is my weird little DnB track for the DnB Time Signature Contest: http://www.newgrounds.com /bbs/topic/945592
It was put together pretty quick, and rather randomly, so the thought process behind it isn't too great. It's in 5/4, I sliced a drum break I got from nav ages ago, and yeah, here it is.
Listen, enjoy, vote and review if you feel up to it. I'd love to know what people think of this.

-Cheers

Oh my damn!

This song actually got me high. That's some awesomeness.


WritersBlock responds:

I don't condone the use of drugs, would you consider this an adequate alternative? lol, I knew some of my music was weird, but I've never heard of someone getting high off soundwaves before. Thanks for the reviews, I appreciate the support.

.......................

this is good dude the drums are really good its fast and fierce and ... in your face and good dude sounds like a very fast chaotic fight.

sometime try doing a heavy metal song.


WritersBlock responds:

Lol, I dunno how I'd go with metal. I might be able to do some DnB type thing with vox, but as for straight up heavy guitars and mad solos, I don't have the performance skill for that. :'(

whoo!

it's... interesting... not quite like anything I've heard before, it sounds like a sort of high-speed chase/fight, and the chaotic feel is... stimulating I guess you could say, I cannot compare it with other musical tracks on a 1 to 1 basis because it's so different


WritersBlock responds:

Hey, I'm glad it works on its originality basis. Thanks Mizox.

Wow, that is a very intense song. The strange rhythm makes the song very interesting.
Even though a 5/4 beat is a very odd one it sounds really nice and surprisingly "ordered" (couldn't find a better word ^^).

I can really imagine the crowds going crazy to this song on the dancefloor! :)

Too bad it gets a little bit repititve towards the end. Some different parts there would be a very nice addition (maybe a change in the beat would already do the trick).

WritersBlock responds:

Yeah, there are a couple of other 5/4 submissions for the DnB time signature contest, and the beats in those songs sounded less "ordered" to put it that way. I mean, when you listen to an irregular time signature, you usually have that awkwardness which I was surprised wasn't so apparent here. Yeah, there's not a lot of variation here, and the beat stays the same. I'd love to mix it up some, but I guess this is another prime example of something that has potential but falls short of that potential due to laziness.

Thanks for the review.

intense as feck

wow, this is real game right here. Intense stuff right here. I can hear some sonic the hedgehog influences in the melody.

the 5/4 beat makes it sound really damn interesting (its that extra snare hit) i started writing something in 6/4 last night, but that doesnt count as odd right?

Synths made in sytrus? That detuned saw at the beginning was sick, real nice evil gritty sound. Love the ambient sound, some great FX and background elements that really makes the flow of the song a pleasure to listen to, plus a great thing to add into DnB. melodies and riffs were intense man great job.

I really dig the breakdown at 1:04, mmm, that melody is real nice, excellent preface to an intense bit, the beat was damn tight. in this section I would maybe add some strings that crescendo to really add to the intensity.

Glitch retriggering FX were damn nice, great "climax" part. well executed, rhythm slowly gets faster and rolls along faster.

Great job with automating the drums in the end dude, the last beat was real nice the cutoff boots and cuts flow nicely.

mmm also loops well.

Few things:

Maybe to make the breaks more concise and powerful, layer the kick and snare with a sample and compress them. (I can hear them fine, but its something to consider)

clarity was a bit of a problem- the saw and the synth that carries the melody have this fuzz going throughout the entire track, it personally gets a bit annoying when used so much. I honestly dont know how to fix this, maybe experiment with a low pass filter to remove some of the fuzzing in parts. (modulating the bass filters would make for some sweeeet swells and whatnot too) maybe a more precise shape might help the case which can be remedied by turning down the "skew" and "sine shaper" controls.

the second half might be able to use a sharp, clear lead synth that plays long sustained notes.

all in all, awesome track WB!


WritersBlock responds:

Hey S3C thanks for the killer review. Yeah the saw was a sytrus.

The mix, the drums, two things I'm working hard to overcome. I've started remaking one of my pieces from a little while ago (Carbon Baby pt 1), and everything's coming together brilliantly and it's sounding amazing.
I've noticed the little extra effort going into effects and atmosphere can make a world of difference to a track, I just need to keep making music, and keep practicing and brushing up on those things.
Again, thanks for putting all this time and effort into this review, I appreciate it a lot.
