My first real attempt at DnB. The results arent so good but im learning.



for a first, this isn't horrible. i've heard way worse. you actually are using drum and bass elements, unlike most of the people who have top scores for this category with their tracks. i have a lot to say, actually

basic drum and bass song structure has a very progressive introduction, usually 1:00 to 1:30 minutes long. it's followed by your first main section with lots of bass variation and such. then comes your slowdown, which can be similar to your introduction, but should contain some new elements but generally just different progression. finally you would have a second main part, which doesn't require much change from the first; i like to include new snare sounds and minimalistic things. end your track soft, but don't let it carry on too long

as for your drums, try not to use default noises. i'm almost entirely sure you used fl studio for them. learn to blend sounds and use compression. change pitches; combine minimal sounds with harder sounds. i mostly use compression for harder snares, which can make them last longer, or generally make them rougher. try not to use so much reverb on them, either.

everything else is up to you. i can't say much else because it would be opinion, sorry. try to listen to professional drum and bass, all different styles. i hope this helps

thanks for the review...i did indeed use fl samples but i made my OWN beat with them. As for listening to professional dnb...i have that covered, but sounding like spor or high contrast will take years of practice at the least on my part.


Nice drums, also good bass sound (although the bass needs a bit boosted up, but not too much or it will distort the sound). I don't know if its me or not but some parts sound a bit offbeat. Although if you keep at it you will master it. Yeah I know probably nothing useful, cant really think what to say :x I'm not that helpful lol.

Good luck on future songs.

Almost kick ass!

bass needs to hold its own ground and not follow the melody but influence the drums. and some equalization is needed then this track will be kicken. your breakdown transition was epic. keep it up!

oh yeah new artist name here

see ya around
