this would not pass for current DnB but it is generally nice. It needs something else, maybe a more fat bassline. Need a reference for up-to-date DnB - check bassdrive.com - all live DJ's from all over the fine planet. They have your answer. Good work though.
P.S. I need more chaos and some asskicking hardcore DnB sounds mate!
*nods* I know it's different, that was goal last night, to write something a tad out-there; I've never written 'glitchy' stuff before, so it took forever to slice up those drums, but worth it in the end, I'd say, eh?
I can putz about with bass synths and see what I conjure up. :P
Thank you for the constructive criticism, mate!
Yeah, this is nice
Needs a bit of a more 'full' bassline though;
Find a nice detuned reese-synth, distort it a tad, lowpass it (and maybe automate the cuttoff if you get adventurous), and replace the original bass-synth with the above.
The atmosphere of this song is wicked though, I like the 'deep wind' effect that comes through... :P
And for the drums, try making a couple of loops where some of your samples are reversed to give a swinging effect... And maybe automate the downsampling of a bitcrusher everynow and then, at the end of the chorus or something...
overall solid tune tho,
wow, thank you for the kind words and constructive criticism, mate!
I can putz around and see how different basses work, sure ;) that drumslicing took me forever last night, haha, but I'll keep your suggestion in mind. :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
