Adam I + Bladezor - Stubborn Synapse

UPDATE 7-24-09:
WOOOOOOT! It got played on BassDrive.com yesterday during the The Green Room show hosted by Stunna! This is a huge milestone for Adam I and myself.

I've PM'd TomFulp to see if he can up my file limit or something so I can get the 320kbps version up on here, we'll see how that works out. Meanwhile I'm putting the 128kbps version up until I hear from Tom. I'll keep you posted :)


The story behind this tune is a bit random. If you look at my profile I had been working on it solo for a while seen here http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/254038

I posted that version on another forum. A few days later Adam I contacted me on AIM saying he liked some of my tunes, at the same time I absolutely loved another one of his tunes. We talked for a while and our 'musical' tastes seemed to click very well. Anyways, I randomly decided to send him the source I had and the rest is history...

It's a great privilege to work with such a talented individual.

Adam I and myself don't really care to be signed, we do this because we love to make music and hope others enjoy our work. We're hoping this gets played on BassDrive (my favorite internet radio station), big ups BassDrive massive!

I hope you guys enjoy.

I hope they don't mind haha, it's fair use and low res.


Thank you!

Absolutely incredible

It was an amazing mirage of sounds, crystal clarity but leaves you disoriented getting lost in the music. Is there any place to download the higher quality version?


When i started this song the intro seemed a bit boring but i left it on and it made me really relaxed. I origionally though that the echo on the sax was a bit much but it grew on me and its now like my anthem of the chill sesh...its one of those songs u can jsut leave on repeat and just chill.....fantastic

Why haven't I found this before...

Seriously, why didn't I find this earlier? NG lacks full drum & bass songs, and this one is definitely high quality (as in production). You guys did an amazing job on this. I love the pads and ambience and the chilled-out feel it has. I only have two complaints about this song. First, I feel the snare could've been a bit better. The snare you currently have has great high-end, but could benefit from some more lows and some more snap. My other complaint is that the saxophone can be too loud at points, at least to me. For example, at 2:18, it's kind of overpowering.

Overall, this song is great. Good job on getting in played on BassDrive! I wish you guys well for your future productions.


Very nice....

indeed this, love the sound of the sax over the evolving pads, panning is great and the bass sublime. The beats fit very nicely and the overall mix is very well done. Excellent piece with plenty of little things coming in to keep the interest :D

Very good collab

Beautiful. I hope it gets played on BassDrive as well.
