Have you ever heard of Harry Houdini?

It starts out as a raw and gnarly dance escapade, though develops into something a lot different.
Lots of build-up and climax. Voiceclip sampled from the film Swordfish with John Travolta, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.

Constructive critique much appreciated.

I liked it

I like peoples work with samples. You have a pretty good mix here. And I don't agree with the last poster who said it wasn't dance, people can dance to break beat, I could dance to this. See, I'm dancing right now... well, if you could see me that's what I'd be doing right now. It's good music, people can dance to it and it's interesting and enjoyable to listen to and really that's all that matters.

Introduce more groove next time

Spend more time choosing samples for your tune, this is totally ungroovy. Kick must corespond with bass, clap and hats. In the end it's quite boring.
If it's dance, why do you have broken beat in there? Breakbeat would be better.

RNNR responds:

Well, the song does say 'Breakbeat' in the title =P, and as there's no 'Breakbeat' genre to upload, I thought the best fitting would be 'Dance', since that's the most general of the possible genres. Drum and Bass comes the closest, but this isn't DnB, so that's out.
But I'm not too nitpicky about that, I just upload it somewhere to where I think it fits the most.

Thanks for the comment, though.


wow, this is very...unique! I don't listen to this genre really, but I know for a fact that it is very different (in a good way though)

I liked your use of different little sounds. I think this would set the mood for some sort of sci-fi game, as in phantasy star online. Well, atleast msot parts lol. I didn't get bored at all listening, very interesting!


RNNR responds:

Rrroooaaaaggghhh!!! =D
Thanks for the comment!

*feels all warm and fuzzy*


I enjoyed it :D
Teh bass was clean but the snare was rather tinny, The intro was also really nice. Where is it from though (dont forget to credit!!!) It had a really nice Jazzy feel.


RNNR responds:

Hm, you're the second to comment on the snare.
Alright, that's it then, my next snare will be muuuuch better, thanks for the advice and review =D

Edited the description.

Very Different :)

I like experimental pieces, and this was pretty cool. I like the jazzy elements like the stabs and strings, along with the driving bass.

Wow. Very nice Chords after the build up. Its awesome! ^^

People reading this should note that they should listen to further in the song, its different to the start and its really good :D

I like your subs on the kicks too.


9/10 5/5

RNNR responds:

Thanks :D

Funny anecdote, a friend of mine listened to it and cut it off right before the 'good' part started.
Listen to the full song people! Otherwise you're missing out xD.
