Nice mix you got going. Chill melodies, good sounds. The only thing I'm going to complain about is the hi hat rhythm. It's kind of awkward. I like the variety you threw into the rhythm and by the second listen through the rhythm stopped being strange but that's always something to try and keep in mind while producing. I don't know what your writing process is like, but it definitely helps to take a step back from your work for a day or two so you can come back to a project with fresh ears. Sometimes you get really used to how things are in a track and you just let them be. I don't know if I've ever left you a review with this idea, but try throwing some delay on those hi hats and have it sync to the tempo. This will create instant dynamics and with a bit of practice can really flesh out a rhythm.
All in all, cool track sir!! Peace.
Sounds like something interesting to try.
Great piece of music. I love the work of the strings in background. The only thing that I found very annoying is that flat synthetic snare. The drums generally shoul be more diversal and energic. Never the less, I like it !
Regards, bye !
Nice and mellow
As I just read in your response to MH16, nifty use of a guitar amp here.
It has this kind of mellow, relaxed feel to it. (If that's the proper use of 'mellow').
Nice use of those string, pretty typical in hip hop (or am I wrong there?), but they add to the nice feel of it.
To be honest, I would've like it better if you had made a more 'complex' drum pattern to it. To give a slightly more speedy feel to it than it has now.
The drum samples and/or the processing of them were pretty top-notch though. Simple and clean.
Sorry for the not-so-lengthy review, but I can't really say much about hip-hop as I barely listen to any- which makes it automatically hard to review one. Hope it was a bit helpful anyway.
Keep it up dude. :)
Yeah analog strings like that and the Nanotron (mellotron emulator) I used were standard at one point in hip-hop. Thank you for the review!
Percussion kind of left something to be desired for me, a little greater variety or a little more activity would be nice to hear.
The bass was definitely nice. Very thick. Still, would have liked to hear a little more variation.
Lead synth is quite nice, though maybe a little quiet.
Overall it's a solid track, though I feel like it could benefit from... going somewhere, if that makes sense.
You know back in 2001 it wasn't rly standerd to use a real kit. Drummachines were still cool so it sounds like a good old drum machine beat.
It's much better without the lyrics. I just randomly clicked on one of ure songs after listening to the other one and it came to this! :D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
