Ok so, as you might of figured this is my first attempt at making Dnb. Background info, Ive recently been really getting into Dnb so I figured why not give it a shot? Tell me if im heading in the right direction & what it might need. Thanks & i hope you enjoy it. Rate, comment, etc.



The bass is far too strong to start off with, need something soft to eventually slide into the heavier stuff like Pad's or Synth beats. Gotta raise the tension and if you do decide to use heavy bass at the start, make it follow a drum beat and not a type of bass that keeps going. Make it like it's a drum itself following the drums or vise versa. But keep at it, you'll get there! :)


Very good for your first attempt hope i see more from you.


It's a start, though there's not much song there. I won't lie, the drums were pretty bad, but despite what the previous user said, I think the main synth you used was perfect for Dn'B. Granted, all that was in this song was that synth pretty much, but With a more aggressive melody and some pitch bends it could sound pretty bad-ass.

Oh and a tip on the drums. Use a slicer and some breaks from old songs. (A good place to start is the "Amen Break" from the Winstons' track Amen Brother. No doubt you've heard of this one. Despite its incredible overuse it's not a bad place to start.) Really, it's damn hard to get the saturated, chaotic feel of DnB with individual samples because their so clean, and DnB isn't clean.

lol thx for the review... well like i said before this is my first attempt at DnB... not only that i wasnt trying to make a full length song, just a type of demo i guess. Nothing special, but you get the picture. but ill put your info to good use. thx =)


Not terrible for a first go, but it is a bit much on the ears. You need to get those drums a bit more active too haha. keep it up.
