I came across a few new tricks with this one, including a nice bass drop instrument crafted from the Depthcore preset in FL (I changed a bit though, all the pitch/cutoff/resonance changes are through slides in this song).

When I started I wanted to expiriment with the style of drumline from "Riptide" and try to get the same "oomf" my kickers in "Crash Course" had. I think I managed to pull that off pretty well, except I didn't go for the off-step/off-beat style snares as much as "Riptide" did

4:33 is where the bass drops kick in and the trippiness starts :P

break it

Breaktrance? More like little experimental breakbeat, also so to say less tr00 breakbeat.

I think the melody has emotion =)

Heard it on Shrink 2 Its great!

Its a nice catchy tune and the sounds involved mix very well and deliver a perfect combination into great music. Good job on this. :)

I like it Dude

yes that's a good for us :) rythm is a bit slow but very appropriate, the good noise of my day.

Keep it up

For french readers :

Voila un petit DND bien sympa et c'est d'ailleurs que tu dises que c'est de la BreakTrance parce que ce n'est effectivement pas entiérement du DNB, anyhow ça reste une très bonne chanson, une bassline bien coulé et discrete, peut être un peu longue je pense, même si elle passe quand même trés bien.
Effectivement les bass drops kicks a 4:33 lol et la fin est beaucoup plus entrainante j'avoue.

Continue comme ça ^^


I think the depthcore came out good in itself, but it's a bit too loud so it doesn't fit very well in the song. Otherwise it's a pretty laid back track. I like the bass and the backround synths. They give it a good 'drive', if you know what i mean :)

Depthcore sounds awesome now!

Wow thats pretty cool Dude, how did you got the Kick out of the Dephtcore ??? I tried but kida screwed it up xD Cool sounding at all, I like the soft synths in the BG and the overall relaxed, easy playing :D Cool Track, let me itroduce it to my iPod...


TheComet responds:

all that "kicker" sound is from that is just changing the automation envelopes in Sytrus, it's just a quick pitch drop followed by it rising back up to 50%, with a cutoff tweak during the drop
