Hey everyone, here's what I've been putting most of my time into lately.
It's the hardstyle remix of Pure & Tainted, except I've decided that I'm going to make 2 songs out of the single classical piece and eventually make a quick promo cd i can show people music I've made.

While making this I think I'm finally learning how to master! :D Tell me if you like it, (Piano/Bass/Lead)

This will probably be deleted after I finish the final version. Which should be in about.. a week maybe 2 weeks, depends how I manage my time.

Dj-Brand0 responds:

I was just about to quit the page (To see your profile dude I love what you make).

Then arrived 1:30 and I was like O_O
That kind of thing is what I love in your music. The hard beat.
=3 Nice work man

Dj-Brand0 responds:

Hey aqua. Thanks for listening through, I can understand people would get bored in this wip considering the main part of the wip is at the end.

But yeah, thanks for liking it :D Also thanks for the support.



the melodies were awesome! the only prob i had with it was same as the others which is of course the kick. But other than that it is terrific since im pretty sure that u will fix the whole kick thing eventually i will give u a 5/5 10/10! kutgw

Dj-Brand0 responds:

yeah I'll fix it when I get around to it. Thanks for the support.

Thanks for the review.



Since this is after all a WIP, I must say from past rave experiences, that Hardstyle is a bass based genre with melody, buildup, phase, buildup, and other sorts of common trance / techno characters.

Overall, your melody is fine, but your kick overall is just not powerful enough.
If you're going for the hardstyle approach, I strongly advice that you up the kick, and the bass / distortion ( which ever you have following the kick,).

A little tip for your melody: When your melody kicks in with the lead: about 1:02 / 1:30, the melody remained untouched, Pitch-wise. You should take copy some of the notes, and add on a higher note on the final melody that mixes with your kick, to create a bit of a "buildup" approach, which hardstyle is all about.

Other than those few things, it's an excellent song overall, great potential.
Keep it up!

Dj-Brand0 responds:

Hey Splice. Thanks for the review.

I understand that the kick is a bit low, and I can fix that, same goes with the bass.
But overall I think I should have said hard dance instead of hardstyle because what i seem to make isn't really hardstyle but some type of hard genre. I guess I'm leaning towards the dance category.. But yeah, thanks heaps for the advice.

Thanks heaps!

It was missing something.

The bass pedal didn't come in until near the end of the song, and i was waiting for it the entire time. But good overall.

Dj-Brand0 responds:

It's a WiP and the bass came in at the end because that's when it was supposed to. It wouldn't have suited if i put in a kick and bass with the piano at the start.

Thanks for the review.

-Cheers Brando
