This is pretty awesome. Me and a friend are currently working on a 'silent' (well, no dialog) flash with a moody futuristic tone and this would be perfect for it.
Also do you mind if i use a VERY small sample of this for the ident of my logo in my flashes? of course you'll get full credit for every cartoon its used in....which will be all the ones coming out this summer!
Anyways awesome tune, love how laid-back yet frantic it is. Gonna check out your other stuff now.
Hey man, thats awesome your reviewing my stuff. I saw rocket crotch a while back! Was really wild. I liked the art and all that.
Yeah man, as long as you credit me your totally fine for using whatever bit you want to use. Thats what its up for! : D Thats exciting. You do some good work, so it'll be cool to be associated.
As far as the tune goes, i try to do that. I like frantic drums with a laid back melody in the back. Its such an odd, yet powerful contrast in my opinion. Do check some other tracks. Thanks for listening.
damn, by the beard of zeus
holy shit this is a great track, especially with the poem and story. from the songs of yours that ive listened to so far they all have been really good, your songs are more mellow and ambient, theyre amazing
this one reminds me of some songs off of era of diversion, which is an album by evol intent
Thanks man. Glad you enjoy the track. : D
I really like this one myself. I try to be a bit mellow and ambient, yet wild and crazy. I like the contrast : P
I have never listened to any Evol Intent. I may have to check them out. Thanks for your review, keep your ears open for more : D
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
This is the best review i have ever received. For taking the time to pick apart the track like that and fill me in on some other things to try with this track (I've been meaning to go back to this track and really make it stand out. I do like the bass idea and or some sort of delicate pad in the background. Something that doesn't stand out too much, but if its there you'll tell and it'll make for a more relaxed and pulled together song. I do like the idea of the rides or hats at the end, too. Give them a jazzy swing. I may try that. I will be working further on this song for sure. There's many things i want to go back and play around with still. I really appreciate your review it makes me want to go back and put more work into this. When i do implement the changes i will let you know!
if i can ask, or more so suggest. You should listen to "Moonlight Through Misty Air" And tell me what you think (its the story before this actually). It's my favorite track so far and would love to have you take a listen and tell me your thoughts.
If You're Not Already
You need to be selling and/or promoting albums of your work. Every song I've heard from you is inexplicably perfect. Love it!
Yeah, i wish i was selling, I've been doing some promoting here and there, doing some shows around town. I've been trying to put together an album / get on a label. Its awesome to hear that you really like my tunes! It drives me further! Thank you.
this is a hard-to-find type of DnB music. and i really like how the mix of the soft playing piano goes along with the fast DnB beats... and i dont find much of these types of tunes in where im at... so for this uniqueness of this pice.. i give my 10s and my 5s
Thanks man, im really glad you dig it. Yeah, not too many people doing this style of music, really. You should check out Venetian Snares and the flashbulb if your like stuff like this!
Anyhow, thank you for the good ratings. Keep listening. : D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
