Started this last weekend, then got a new drum machine for Christmas. So everything in this song is recorded, either from piano keyboard, synth keyboard, drum machine, or guitar. Pretty noisy, pretty gritty, enjoy with some headphones or whatever. Took tons of time to record and tweak, but was also lots of fun and rewarding.




This was odd but still kinda cool. A little slow for my taste but I still liked it. I wish I could figure out what genre this could be catagorized under. I liked the different synths you used. Sorry this isn't longer but I'm sort of perplexed by this song

Ha, I'm glad you didn't listen to my newer one then, it's much more down-tempo than this.

Anyways, I suppose I can aim to perplex. So thank you.

Nitty gritty

This is an interesting track. I like the dissonance created by the instruments, as well as the thick layering you have on here. The bends on the keys are especially enjoyable, as well as the hi-hat sizzles.

The only real issues I have with this track is the amount of time it takes to build. Not that it's a bad thing in this genre, but the track is a bit boring at times. Also, some dynamics would probably help tremendously. Looking forward to hearing more of your work.

kevs91 responds:

The bends and "sizzles" are examples of why I like working with hardware so much ("pops" are an example of why I don't...)... it's stuff I couldn't really do with the software I was working with before. So thanks on that.
As for build, yeah, I guess it's not really such a buildup type track, more of an ABAB type thing. But I'll work on more movement. The "sizzles" you like are a result of varied dynamics in the drum machine, ironically, but I'll work on more variation on other instruments and on overall mixing.

Thanks for the review.
