Nice man. Love the sound of the intro drums. Great drop into the first vocal loop too. Cool vibe in that segment. I keep playing it over. Dig the breaks pitching up and down and time shifting.

Midnights-Ocean responds:

Awesome man! I'm very happy with how this one turned out. Glad you think so too. Thanks for the 5! : )

You lucky bastard! I'm running through monitors right now.

Mate! How fucking good is this??? I can tell you worked to a flat eq response as all the sub and bass is clean. Now......is it dnb or breaks? This mix is leaning more to dnb, but it's missing that bass pump. So for me it's breaks.

Working in the genre, there's bass, there's some treble, it's energy is all in the lower end which is exactly where it should be, to fill that thin line of mid would ruin a great track.

Your vocal samples could actually be cleaner, but if it's comp'd in mix it explains that.

In a club this bangs............

i want to hear the midnight dub 8 minute epic

5 all day

Midnights-Ocean responds:

You bring a smile to my face mate! A rare thing these days indeed. My memory of jungle tends to be the more permutated stuff, probably round the later half of the 90s and early early 2000s. Right about the time the line between breaks and D&B was being blurred all over the place. At least, that's how I remember it. "Atmospheric jungle" I recall some people calling it.

Yes I was very happy with how tight this mix turned out. And yes, in the car, I still wanted more clarity from the vocals. I think just a little more EQ, a light exciter or just plain more volume on them might do it. I'll do what I always do, mix the thing a little more every time I come across the project file.

heh dat bass pump. I'd love to hit the bass more like that but it can be such an illusive thing for me, getting that perfect D&B bass.

lol I'd love to do more D&B, dub and jungle in general, but it's the kinda thing I really gota be in the mood for, or it just turns out boring and disjointed. It isn't purely D&B by any stretch of the imagination but I AM working on a jungle flavored album: https://midnightsocean.bandcamp.com/album/paradigms-unique

It's a tall order though, for me personally, because the genre in the 90s left such an impression on me, I feel the bar has been set quite high and I don't get satisfaction unless I reach it, even if it's just a tiny pinkie barely brushing by it. : )
