i updated the quality of this track, now it sounds better :)

This is my first track since my keyboard got messed up but now that is done, "it's time to comeback from a black day". My Favorite thing about this track its the synth of course, cuz i think it sounds really great, no matter at what speed it is playing it sounds good, i can see this track with a "Escape" Theme if you can understand me and if you don't , just listen this track and imagine yourself running really fast in the street while its snowing. Escaping.......from a black day : )

Whoa whoa whoa.

This isn't a bad song, and it certainly is DnB, even if it has a lot of other stuff going on... but your description of DnB in your response to the previous review is not completely correct. First, drum & bass definitely DOES need drums and bass. Otherwise, it wouldn't be drum & bass, it'd just be fast breakbeat or something. That's not to say you can't have other stuff going on, because you certainly can and you certainly should. But I just wanna clear it up - without drums or bass, it's not drum & bass lol. And point number two, DnB isn't between 140 and 190 bpm; 140 is way too slow. That would be breakbeat. DnB is generally in the 170s, but it can range from 160-190. Personally, I think 190 is too fast, but that's just me.

So about the song, in your intro, I much like the pad, it gives it a great atmospheric feel. The synths you have, especially like the one that comes in at 1:37, should be turned down. It sounds too overpowering. You have to find that perfect balance between drums, bass, synths, and effects, you know? This song is not bad, but it could use some better mixing. With a proper mixdown, this is 10/10 material.



I like it , but um.. tell me how this song fits in the DnB section , cause i hear some drums and little bass , and trust me i would know caues my foot stool is my sub so im not saying its bad , but umm DnB idk


This song Kicks ASS!!! I totally get the escape bit but i don't see how snow fits into it... anyways it still pwns. The clarity of the sound is brilliant and the beat is mad. I seriously love the into. 10/10 5/5

Acid-Paradox responds:

hey thanks for the review , you make me smile :)

the purpose of the snow thing is to give, more suspense, more energy

snow always works in urban places

example : Max Payne!!!

not my favorite but it has potential

it seems a bit patchy to me but otherwise its a decent enough song i hope you have a good life

nice track

awesome quality, great rich sound and effects, the part starting at 1:32 moves this at an other level, keep those coming
