COMPRESSION

Lately I've been taking another look at how I do my mixing and mastering, and I believe I've achieved a louder result with this track than I have previously. I think this one turned out pretty alright.

One of the main melodies is blatantly based on Starbomb's "Luigi's Ballad."

Enjoy!

Hey man, nice song, I think you've finally created your own style in Drum'n'bass.
Starting with the introduction which is a neat success (which could have been a bit longer in my opinion as much it's a great one, and because of the length of the song ; I'm sure you could make us wait a bit more, enough to get impatient to hear the heart of the track ;)).

I perceive a lot of similarities with Horizon, which is definitely your best song of all times in my opinion, talking about the structure of the track, drums, mood, the superimposition of a "false lead" (I create this term for you, man :D), which gets out of the traditionnal way to create catchy melodies that start from a point to reach another (to me, it's more like you design a melody that needs to be repeated just like an accompanment), and a long ethereal and ambient table. That finally leads to an impression of perfect combination and a awesome space occupation with a real density.

Your variations are well dosed, and even if I realized that that they're pretty outnumbered (at the exception of the very subtle calm at 2:42), but absolutely sufficient to keep the listener entertained till the end. It's typically the kind of song that could not end but not bore me. In a way, you use the trance-music (which I don't really like, unless it's psychedelic trance :P) codes that you adapt to your own creation. And that definitely lead to an amazing result.

What could be enhanced (in my very little humble opinion), is the snare. It's too much "in your face", but weirdly in the same time too stiffled. I think you would gain to use a little cut-off on it, and reduce its velocity, because, in this whole density and space occupation, I guess that some elements would take advantage of emerging out of the mass, but whithout assaulting the listener ;)

Finally, I really like the song, it's a very good job in my opinion, with a great ensemble coherence. You know how to be effective while promoting your own style, and it's a pleasure to hear your songs, that are always interesting to hear, and if not always gold nuggets, never disapointing.

Cheers ;)

Awesome review man, it's always fantastic to read such an extensive analysis :P

It seems I got a fair few comments on the snare, and that's unfortunate really because I really like it :/ I'm always hearing DnB or Dubstep or Drumstep and thinking to myself "man, that snare really isn't loud enough" and so I pump mine up to the max. I also have a habit of avoiding snare brightness because I don't like how it sounds sometimes.

That said, you're probably right - and my goal is to appeal to as many people as I can, so it's definitely worth changing what I do if the consensus is that it'd be a good decision

Thanks again for the awesome review, it's certainly appreciated :D
