Nice but probably not what you were aiming for

Basically for a track that is called 'Dirty Bastards' it doesn't sound all that dirty.
It's well put together, sounds nice but is utterly unoffensive to anyone. I would say this is like the Coldplay of electronic music but that's a bit too cruel.

To me this sounds a bit like the backing track to a La Roux song or some sort of game menu music, and I really don't think that's what you were aiming for with Aphex Twin meets Ratatat.

It's not nearly rhythmically nor sonically complex and interesting enough to be likened to Aphex, and it lacks the attitude that Ratatat has. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this is very safe and quite bland and I think you should push the boat out more. Have a dirtier bassline that cuts and doesn't just plod along, have more exciting drums, possibly some sampling, ever thought about trying to use some glitch beats?

If however this style of music is what you're going for then all I can say is that it's not like Ratatat nor Aphex, but it is good for what it's worth. Personally I find it relatively uninteresting and unexciting so it's hard for me to give critique on it's own merits other than branch out more with your synth tones, you can definitely afford to be a bit more layered.

Alternatively get yourself a female vocalist or something and try for the whole La Roux sort of thing, but even so you're going to need more aggression in your drums and your bass.

So overall, not bad, just not great. It's nice but 'nice' was probably not what you were aiming for.


HarraH responds:

I really appreciate the criticism man, also the La Roux dig was humorous. Yes I suppose my music is very low key... It's more the type that you chill to and zone out to... I do need to work on my songs becoming more... engaging, your constructive words will definitely have an impact on my next work :)

I wrote Aphex Twin/Ratatat because the way I had done the reverb hits accompianment was inspired by aphex twin as were the chilled synth plucks, and the heavier, more natural sounding bass towards the end seemed to have an aspect of Ratatat or something.

As for the title? I was feeling ironic.

Once again, thanks!
