Sweet!

I never thought of going to your audio page. I'm glad I did :D

This song rocks! Its calm and sort of like mysterious. Then the drums kit in then its like a chase down a street in the 50s.

xD

10/10 5/5

Hey, thanks man - of course, this track is more than two years old at this point... :) The more recent stuff is ... more bizarre I guess.

Really glad you enjoyed it though!

Another brilliant, unique tune.

Really love all your tunes that I've heard. All your loops do indeed loop seamlessly and deserve to be listened to for a long while - looping.

Listened to this for half an hour.

Question: what are 'hooks'? I previously thought that they described catchy melodies, like in a pop song or some pop rock stuff that's repeated to 'hook' folk in. Something kinda easily repeatable that gets played a fair few times in the tune... But the way you're using the word, I guess it has a different meaning?

Anyway, I do really like this tune. It reminds me of smoky bar joints and the meandering melody really does have a jazzy feel and also some almost indian undertones, I thought. (Specially with the melody that picks up at 45s and becomes more prevalent at 53s.

I really love how you play with different influences - all your tunes have a different feel and though they all seem to come from the same kinda laid back place, with kinda chilled vibes, they all sound really individual and I love how I can listen to one of your tunes with little idea what instrument you'll use, what you'll focus on etc.

My only comlaint with this particular piece is that I kinda felt that when you were using the louder drum beats (like you did from 21-52s) they were a tad too loud. After a while I still found the melody intriguing, but the drums got a tiny bit irritating.

Also, if I'm being ultra-critical, maybe if the first 'phrase' or two of the tune were slightly quieter, it'd loop even better?

Still, it's another great piece and comes from a very unique place. Would love for you to explore this area more.

Hooks :D

I'm just using the term to indicate where, in the track, that it "picks up" or "gets going".

Normally though, the term is used for something more along the lines of your definition.

The reason why I even bothered to mention anything about it in this and any other track is because there is such a zero voter problem in the AP - they hurt a lot more here than they do for flash because there are so many fewer votes on audio.

My theory is that NG people might click play - listen for 6 seconds and if it isn't trance then they click the 0 button and move one... :(

I figure that if a track takes 15, 20, 40, etc. seconds before it picks up then I'd make some sort of a note instead of "listen for more than 8 seconds"...

Meh... doesn't seem to have much of an effect - people still either listen or not and zero voters are just as active as they ever were...

weird

very strange intro i really couldnt place what mood u were going for, but thats definately a good thing. the bassline has a sort of drumnbass clubby feel to it while the background melody is something totally different. reminds me of the way 'classical music' drifts easily between happy sad dark light etc.

only thing i didnt like was the snare in the hook. it sounds far to fake and sticks out quite a bit. dont really know what to suggest, perhaps not so many [] short cuts on the snare.

otherwise a very nice track.


LJCoffee responds:

Ahh yes - one of the first things up on NG from my end... I had just finished listening to a bunch of EZ Rollers stuff and I guess I was sort of influenced by that.

Made on headphones - I didn't get to appreciate how bad the mix was on speakers until a while later...

Cool Idea

I like how the drums where louder then the jazz because you don't see that in very many songs. I think you did really good with this one.


LJCoffee responds:

Thanks - I really liked this track - I think it was my very first posted on NG.

o-right again

Thats my kind o shit. well played sir.
in response to kingbastards review, i think it's a darn good thing to be in limbo of styles. Much more interesting. good to hear something a bit different.
word. ;Pedro
(again, search pedromancuso and tell me where i'm going wrong:)


LJCoffee responds:

Thanks - Kingbastard is right though - he actually gives me some really good suggestions from time to time. But yes, I think it's better to sort of drift in and out of a few different styles. I listened to your stuff and I really like alot of it - I really don't think you're doing anything wrong at all, I just think that people around NG in general don't respond well to certain types of music - which I always wonder about because alot of 'em really like Aphex and Squarepusher and some of the really hard IDM stuff so you'd think that they would all dig a little glitch here and there but I guess you never can tell... My advice would be to do exactly what you're doing - After all, if people like your music then it's better that they like YOUR music instead of you composing and arranging music that other people like - know what I mean...
