your stuff is underrated. its sad.

this isnt that bad. i think this one doesnt have as good of a melody. i really like the intro. hmmmm. i think its because the longer notes of the synth that come in. maybe a little shorter and choppy. i say this because your beat is hard and upbeat, and the notes seem long and downbeat.

but otherwise, the drums are pretty good as usual. the arpeggio is awesome. just keep up the music! its a good start. sometimes i just toss the melody and make a complete new one. but whatever works

SteakJohnson responds:

lol tell me about it, I had the drums too loud on this tho the first hit is like completely clipping. I definitely intend on keepin up the music, and you too man upload some more stuff.

repetitive but cool bass

I think the bassline has some potential, deffo just change the break and use different drums taht are more aggressive and dark. The samples you used for that would fit perfectly in a High Contrast Tune but not in a Noisia Track with this bassline imo. its dark vs. light and so it never gets anywhere. Also the kick is lacking punch and the whole neat is VERY repetitive and also overloaded with kicks :/ Less is more sometimes, change the drums and make a new sequence, turn the hihats down and exchange the samples (get away from the light, jungle hats)

Enough of these harsh words >:( The Bassline is great compared to the older ones, its different in sounds and rich of modulation but lacks a low end and feels like its only playing on the upper mid and high sections. That causes it to sound... empty and plain. It lacks... well.. "phat" if you know what I mean its just not kicking in, you have to give it more room.

Also DO NOT play dnb like a hiphop or pop beat (intro verse chorus verse etc.) its not that simple, make outstanding changes at the end of each 32 bars if you like, bass only, drum rolls, effects, soundsamples or vocals, Keep it changing and dont fall back into the first half again, its the same beat and same bassline mod over and over again besides the changes at 0:51 and 1:47

There is this nice videogame melody in the background ( also in the intro, could be trance) that is NICE and very CATCHY (1:04) but just doesnt fit in the idea of making a dark bassline with a happy jungle beat. I think you know how to produce good sound but not how to put the right parts together and honestly you produce so many songs even with your broken headphones and slow pc that I don't think you get the chance to "feel" them all cause you simply don't have enough time to focus on one track or you just put the stuff together and once you got somthing solid you upload it instantly on NG to let OTHERS tell you what they think of this 1-2 hours sit production. You have to listen to yourself first. I think you should start a serious tracks and work on others like this only as a sideline and check your big track every few days. Take a listen and you will find something to improve I promise, I am working on a huge track myself for like a afew months now and yet its still the same patterns and everything. I am just overworking my mixing and mastering and my break or chnage some EQ here and there a bit everytime I check it. Its little things that make the hole thing complete, the sound is excellent right now thanks to all the smal things I did in the past months and I can say this is the best sounding track every not only in mastering but also in its flow, everything matches it just flows man u know. Thats what I am talking about, you have to feel it...

sorry for any bad words here :,(

SteakJohnson responds:

Hey thanks, I dont mind the bad words bcauz theyre truthful words and I agree with them. I have started work on a big bad track and I cant wait to finish it lol, bass fits with that one much more and other things... Main things I have trouble with is the build up and beginning. Im pretty sure ppl lose interest in lotsa my songs b4 I can get them to the climax, so Im just gonna like you say, work hard on a beginning for awhile. Cant wait to hear your track btw (but take your time lol).

Quite nice I say.

But the combination between the entire track and the bass itself... it's just not doing it for me, really. Don't get me wrong, I definitely like the track., but I feel like the bass doesn't fit in with the overall "feel" of the track.

Now on to the drums. A bit too much on the high end for the drums, although, quite nicely done. You are a beatmachine lol. Definitely love that break down @ 1:47. Totally awesome.

As for everything else: The leads were nicely done, and the overall effects put into the track fit quite smoothly. If you're gunna do a bass, I think a nice low cut reese bass with some massive sub would definitely fit the track instead of a noisia style bass.

A good job, nonetheless. Keep it going :)


SteakJohnson responds:

Heh thanks I love makin my beats, I move onto new songs too quickly tho. (headphones r bass biased so theyll always be a bit treble heavy).

This track was kinda just a lil side project though, workin on a larger one which I wanna spend lotsa time on... Thx for the review tho!
