Yep, I've finally made a new Drum & Bass track. It features vocals! They're not me singing this time, even better! After watching a video on Youtube of the Brookes Brothers producing a track, I was inspired to make a DnB song. I picked up a few tips on how to make better drums from that video. You guys should hear the drums in my latest track, Andromeda. They're even better. I don't think I'll be submitting Andromeda, but you can listen to it on my Myspace:

Anyway, enjoy this track!




Love the intro drum beats, don't care for the fills they have though.
- But whatever

Square thing is kind of relaxing and calming I guess.

Pretty smooth track and it flows pretty well, good mixing and mastering.

Like the vocal effects, and main drum fills, breakdown toms are good too.

Main drums are nice, could use more beef to em' though.

Reese has the right idea... but kinda fails IMO, lol.

I give it a 9 because it doesnt really have a powerful breakdown/climax thing and the reese fails.

Overall it is very well arranged and very smooth flowing and relaxing.
Very nice track!

i'm capable of much better reeses, and the main drums do need to be fatter. this song definitely isn't my best. myspace.com/ackute for my new, better stuff.


And by the title, I mean literally. It is a very cooling song. Very calming.

The vocals add to the atmosphere a lot. They are the best part of this song. However, I give this a nine because the beginning's pretty weak and some parts are not as dynamic as they could be.

lolz as if you knoez anything about teh muzikz

jk of course


Rawr. sassy dnbz you've got going on here. I'm not sure where your at in your production habits because I've never actually ran into any of your tracks before, but I can tell you've been at it for a while. I might recommend turning the reverb down on the vox sample. Perhaps try some different effects on it. Cut it up and make some rhythms out of it. Pan it like crazy. Dunno, play some moar plox.

I think the reese could stand to be a little sharper. Try upping the treble on it/ experiment with some distortion. I know this track has a much more laid back feel to it, but that didn't stop mistabishi on his track no matter what. If you're familiar with that song, I had a feeling this was heading in that kind of direction.

I noticed the dynamics of the hats/shakers stayed about the same the entire track. You can get some really nice dynamics just from throwing some delay on those hats and accenting every other note. I do it in all my tracks and it saves me a hell of a lot of time when writing beats.

I'm not sure how much automation you used if any, but you really need to take advantage of that feature when working with DAWs. I find that some of the best effects come from using automation to morph the characteristics of your synths over time. This is especially true in dnb. Meow.

Overall great track and keep experimenting. ^_^

Thanks man. I'll keep this in mind. I recently learned how to properly modulate a friggin reese, after like 3 years lol. I'll keep at it.

Great Start for '09

Well done Mister Boney-Man :D I like the Ambient influences, the new Drums are also great produced, nice punch and straight sounding at all. The Drum Percussions are a great addition to the Beat and the beeping Synth is easy constructed and well supporting the relaxed feeling, I like the Delay on it :DDD (guess thats where the name "echoes" came from) The Clap-Snare is also a nice new touch to your normal Style of making DnB. Only 2 things bother me here: At 3:00 the Bassline Hz and Sound, I know the Bass has been there before but it was overlayered by the beat and the other synths, when it comes out more clearly I don't like the sounding that much :/ And the Vocals were a bit loud and repetitive. But overall its a great new tune :DDD
