Finally, actual drum & bass.
Nice drums. They sound tight. Since this is a WIP, I can't say much, but it sounds like it's going to turn out to be a good song. The intro is rather repetitive up to 0:44 though, might want to add some subtle sounds here and there.
First off, I played your remix of ghost-busters at a party a few weeks back and they went fucking nuts. Can't blame 'em :)
I'm really starting to get interested in your music. There really aren't very many quality producers in this style of dnb, but you certainly fit the bill! Your last track mellow man was really catchy and well produced, but it had a wierd intro, lacked a bit of variation the sub was a bit weak, but I can see here you're definitely improving.
It's hard to review unfinished pieces but... I do really like this, the melody and chord progression is catchy and simple; very pleasing to the ears. And the sounds and synths match perfectly. The drums are very nice and punchy but maybe just a TAD too loud in the mix (but that just might be to do with the quick compressor you "slapped" on lol). The drop and build up is also very good, and gives a sweet release when the main beat punches back in.
I only hope that from here on out you add some variation to the track. In Mellow Man, after the second drop, it really felt like it was about to splash into a slightly darker or different section, but instead it just kicked back into the main melody.
I also noticed that you recycled some of the sounds here from Mellow Man. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with using old synths and samples, but don't over do it. A well known artist on NG (Waterflame, you've probably heard of him) does this a lot and it can really brings his music down sometimes.
Honestly, I'm really looking forward to the full version of this. And sorry for the long review. Keep it up!
...btw would it at all be possible to get a hold of that snare sample? Or if you could tell me where you got it from? That's not in the default reason libary is it? I havn't dived into there in ages. Oh and don't you dare look at my page lol, I'm not kidding. Everything on there I made EONS ago and frankly, its all shit.
Thanks for the big review!
The snare is from a combination of various snares, artist secret, sorry cant reveal :P
good melody, good composition, catchy drums. just needs some cleaning here and there, and the bass definitely will be awesome if you would add some crispy feel to it. very good start overall!
7/10 for now, will be looking out for the final version.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
