Author Comments

I was inspired by the dust storms that hit Eastern Australia as I was also In the storm myself. I went outside and oddly enough the sun was tinted blue while everything around me was like a crimson orange. I felt like I was somewhere else, somewhere unique and mysterious. I still think about it all the time how dark it was and how hard it was to see anything about 40 meters away from yourself.

Anyway, I started making this yesterday while practicing some new techniques on making better bass, seems to have paid off again. I had also added a guitar to give it that desert effect like what the storm made me feel as I was outside looking around at it in amazement.

I hope to finish this off before my b-day which is the 6th of October!

~ Enjoy! :D

BlackVen0m responds:

Hahaha, thanks! xD


This is awesome i love the beat and the bass really did pay off.
what program are you using?

BlackVen0m responds:

FL8 and some VST's I purchased.


1:26 on is a sick beat. how did you create that effect? and if you have any kindness, just take a peek at my audio

BlackVen0m responds:

It's a simple beat I picked up from listening to plenty of DnB tunes really... xP

Just listen carefully and really, most tunes are just a simple -Kick... snare... Kick Snare!- Just change it a bit at certain points of the tune and throw in some percussion! :D


Yea that intro defenitly works
that first minute was really enjoyable
I lost some interest around 1:40 because the song lost that chill vibe i really enjoyed. But that's just me wanting to hear something different and you trying to creat your own feel to it. No need to rush her,
Great work bro

BlackVen0m responds:

Thanks mate, I was trying to aim for a soothing intro and then go into a Dark DnB tune the next. I might make a light mix where it's more soothing but that's If I could be bothered to try and expand on that. xP

ok, so

the sitar/guitar in the beginning, EQ it, so it's not so high on the frequency,
i like the song as a whole, and it's got great use of timbre.
sounds a little like pendulum, but i digress,
enjoyed the tune, and if i had my way, i would add short, beepy chords when the bass hits at 1:25 to fill the song out a little more.

BlackVen0m responds:

Thanks, I'm actually suprised that people are starting to assume that I have a similar style to famous DnB artists. Not entirely sure if thats a good or bad thing seeing as I want to be myself really and not someone else! xD

Anyway, It's still a work in progress so I still got alot of work to do on it. Shouldn't expect everything to be great straight away! :P
