++==CRANK THAT VOLUME UP!!==++

A collaborative song between me and DJ-Delinquent, I really am very proud of this song! DJ-Delinquent, a very talented Hip Hop artist, has worked with me to make this masterpiece. A fusion between hip hop and classical!
Visit his page at http://dj-delinquent.newg rounds.com/ and listen to his songs!
Enjoy this song and leave a review while you're at it!

P.S. Anyone want to guess which parts were mine and which parts were Delinquent's?

Win.

Quite win. It has a good buildup, well mastered, yadayada. Your usual standard of excellence.

What would boost this track dramatically is vocals, but I'm pretty sure that's pretty obvious in hip-hop. :p

As Wylffyre1 pointed out, the choirs get repetitive. They're beautiful, but used to much. In the intro they fit just nieely, but some other choirs later on would be better. Or just leave them out after the intro and replace them with another melody.

Also, the more 'optimistic' part, the bells and all, they're not really fitting into hip-hop. They fit in medieval tracks, they fit in classical tracks. They fit into your style. Though this is a collab, and should be treated as one. I think the biggest flaw on this track is that there is more of a clash of both genres instead of a collaboration. Like they go on and off to 'shine'. You should let the genres flow into eachother like they're happily married with 3 children and a pool in the backyard. The thing is, that's darned difficult with these genres. It's near-impossible to make a track like that. You succeed very, VERY well in the intro. I'd say what distracts the most from the overall flow are the bells and the high pitched synths around it. The track starts with a darker moodset than where it ends. This track would seem fitting for vocals and that always somehow changes the way you look at a track. A problem occurs that when I try to think of meaning lyrics, I find myself starting with a sad story/problem and ending in a fairytale.

8.5/10
5/5

I'm not good enough to give technical advice. I tried to judge by my own feeling towards music and I hope it helped in any way. Don't get me wrong, I love the track to bits. It's original, but the collaboration feeling wore off midway. A bit of a shame, but totally understandable. Once again, it is incredibly hard. Both of you did a great job on the track.

Something very different from ya =)

different in this case isn't bad. I'd say this was a very good collab between the two of you. Only complaint is the choir'd vox that repeats a bit through the song. Gets in the way of the actual beauty of the song. Though it doesn't go through the whole song it still gets on the nurves after a while. The piano at 1:51 (i'd have to say is something you had part in) is beautiful and at this point you can really focus on the beauty of the song. The beat is damn good and very hip hop-esque. The flute that comes in at 2:04 (also your i'm guessing) is fun to listen to. The choir is also nice at that part. Everything flows and transitions well through out this song. Makes it a good listen. So for the most part ya'll got my five and my favorite =).

That sample is a bit overdone... perhaps so. The beat is DJ-Delinquent's by far and that's really well done. As for the beauty of the song, we were aiming to have two parts of the song that were sort of polar opposites. Dark vs Beautiful. Or you could say Beauty and the Beast. :P

Thanks for the review!

DUDE

it's about time something this style rolled around! Love the mystic, dark feel of the piece. Sounds like something that would be the main theme to an epic, adventurious movie or video game. Job well done!

Woahh

Crikey, you are really good

omg this is so epic

all I can think is more chord diffirientations and variety in the choirs? But I stopped thinkin this when the pace changed completely with the piano, real nice mood :D

Thank you! You are also very good. :P

It has a consistency in it that doesn't change, yet it also changes by the strings and choirs. And the break in the pace really also balance out the darkness.

Great to hear that you enjoyed the song!
