Cut from Reality -

This song is a typical dnb song in the sense of drums and bass (dur) but the leads are piano and violin and are really arpeggiated and theres a nice little polyphonic bit in the middle =P

I had SO much trouble trying to EQ this and master it nicely, because of the strings, piano and cymbals fighting for the highs and the bass, square, kick n snare fighting for the lows it was fucking annoying >.<

Its still a little from finished but im quite happy with it

Almost perfect. The only part I don't like is the beginning, but I don't hate that part. The rest of it is superb though.

Thank you! I made this so long ago I honestly don't even know how I made it, it's crazy!

I thought I'd check out some of your earlier submissions and my god you are amazing!


This fits with what I was looking for well. Thx.

I read your comment about EQ and had a few instant ideas...

As I understand from the get go the focus of the song was the classical instruments mixing with the DnB styles you kind of set yourself up for the challenge, but I think you did a farely good job. :) The differences I would make would be simply personal taste; things more like an opinion rather than right or wrong (example: more high or low ends, or more present snare vs. less present violins, and vice/verse, etc. etc.)

Anyway, my simple solution for avoiding muddy mixes: I try to visualize in my head were certain voids in the frequency scale are and purposely select synths or instruments that fit into those voids. By attacking a song from early creation to the end in this manner I have found my best songs have been produced. Often this results in great success for easy mixing/mastering and a good full range audio spectrum which always makes our music sound so much more professional and lush to listen to.

Great track, 5/5, d/l.

Keep it wildstyle!

Pure awesomeness

That is all.

Keep this up.

Or I will find you..
