This was made for the NG Audio Death Match - http://www.newgrounds.com /bbs/topic/1128246/1

I debating whether or not to make it longer or leave it as is. I'm thinking that it would get repetitive if I made it longer. idk

Anyway, I had a lot of fun working on this one. I'm please with way it came out :)

ps bounced at 320 kbps :D HIGH QUALITEH!!!



It is nice, but somewhat repetitive.

Keep improving, and i will always be your fan.

so professional considering this is just a newgrounds track. there's so much liquid dnb here, but this just tops everything. those drums are perfect, carrying the beat and flowing so well with your other elements.

i mostly love your transitions. everything gently flows from one part to another. it's almost as if nothing is sudden, so it's a whole piece.

i completely disagree with the review below me, too. this is worth a lot more than a 7, and i'm giving a vote of 5 as well. nice work, man.

Thanks man! I appreciate it!

Not bad...

Well, It is slightly repetitive in the beginning. Nice work on the melodies which are introduced alter though. Those are great. Drums are the key problem here however. As our harsh friend Blackhole12 mentioned, its DRUM'n'bass. It could definetely use more work on terms of drums and some extra melodies wouldnt hurt either.


P.S This is your judging review from NGADM Round 1. I posted it for ya just cos its always nice to have more reviews.

Variation is Dead

Seriously, no one varies their drumloops anymore, which normally wouldn't bother me except the name of this genre is DRUM'n'bass, not REPETITIVE'n'bass.

This song is just way too repetitive; It's a 30 second intro followed by the exact same thing for an entire minute, followed by 20 seconds of transition into another minute of the exact same thing with an additional melody slapped on, followed by another 20 seconds of an ending melody transition, which then abruptly stops without any resolution whatsoever.

The first section needs drum variation and melody alterations. The transitionary part in the middle is very good, but the melody is only 2 bars long and simply repeats endlessly, it needs to be longer and have more variation in it. The ending was almost good except that you cut everything out and then landed on something other then the tonic, which is a big huge fat no-no.

The production in this is fairly good, but the song just isn't cutting it. Even as a DnB song, you don't put in any variation with your drum loops, with makes the whole thing a giant loop. The lack of creativity in this forces me to give this a very low score, since it's one of those songs that just doesn't have a soul to it.

I love the feel of this song. It's sort of ambient but the drums and bass do a wonderful job of keeping me pumped up throughout the song. Great job man.
