Tried to make it as hardcore as possible without overdoing it. Not Final.

The final version is complete!

Quite good

This really isn't my style, but I appreciate that you've done it well.

There's a nice beat, and the instruments, if you call them that, fit together really well.

The only thing I'll say is that at the start all the instruments come in one by one. You should try to be more original with your start.

The end was a bit of a letdown too. Fading out is done too often, and it sounds boring.

Well if you don't like music that adds one layer at a time, then do NOT listen to Zdarlight by Digitalism (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ePfI kGqHCQ). It actually an awesome song, but that songs adds one layer at a time.

(title in work)

You used a lot of more uplifting tones in this one than I would think a hardcore track would use. For much of this song, the only thing I feel that would make this hardcore is the prevalent bass throughout the song. Regardless of what genre it belongs in though, I think this was a good track. Perhaps a bit repetitive and generic at times, but still good.

Thank you for the review. I was actually looking for a generic song with a banging beat. One that you would find in the public domain, or as background music for a club scene in a tv show or movie.

Thank you,

Double beat really has issues

I think that second powerful bass beat in the background that's not keeping time with the rest of this track is what's dragging it down. Sure, the main beat and the melody are great, but this 'low thumping' in the background, which sounds like someone hammering on the recording studio wall isn't doing anyone any favours.

The melody is something nice that keeps the track going, punctuating some of the industrial sounding beat nicely. I like the way that it all fits together and the piece starts to sound like it could become something better.

This is the first time I heard about the second base. Thank you for the review.


Great beat

Excellent job with this one man, really enjoyed listening to it. Though I really loved the beat, it was very strong and could clearly be heard, its obvious that you focused your whole song on just the beat, which was very clever, and, well, hardcore, good job with that.

And I also liked how in the middle of your song you added the electronic/techno elements into it, it made the song sound a lot more interesting and, for lack of a better word, cool.

Excellent job here man, 5/5 from me, keep up the great work! :)

Thanks a lot for the review!


The beat is pretty hardcore, so I guess you achieved you goal there. :)

At first I feared that this would be too repititve, but you threw in some nice melodies during the middle of the song.

Still it sounds a bit too generic for me.
