woo, I dig
I like this a lot man, really nice. The soothing Dnb/Breakcore is definetly my favorite. The repeating minimalistic (but powerful) -esque melodies and interesting atmospheres combined with a hectic drum style reminds me a bit of snayk, although his style is generally dark and this track here is quite light.
Real awesome story too. Thanks for sharing your creative writing side with us.
I really enjoyed the piano melody, repetive but well utilized and flows great with the drums. It also kind of falls into a jazzyish progression, which makes the track all the more deverse, and good use of dynamics. I also like the tone on it, with the nice tail end reverb that kinda of produces its own atmosphere making it feel a bit like a pad.
The birds were a real nice ambience in here.
Real interesting drum patterns and chopping of the break, I like how you put some individual BIGGGGG reverb on the some of the sounds to make it come all over the place and the retriggering FX are real great. Carefully placed to give off lots of energy, but never overly hectic or random. I like you stablized the drums in the end, and put them in a steady pattern. I was kind of hoping you would throw in some hats or a ride cymbal to flow with the beat but it might disrupt the way you transitioned into the ending fate.
If I could make a few suggestions:
Unless if you're going for a type of empty minimalist style, I would definetly thrown in something in the lower end. A subbass bass beneath, if that's too overpowering perhaps an upright or plucked bass would work great with the jazzyish sounding piano, or even just some lower piano chords every now and then, in that way you wouldnt really take away from the emptiness. I feel a light pad could also help build the atmosphere.
Also, although really not a big deal for this style because there arent really chord progressions in DNB, I believe the one piano chord, could use more than just one chord :P Which might contribute to the more melodical side of this track
anyways, absolutely kickass track you got going on here. keep the goods coming!
Fav'd for sure
