The like the "shifty" snare scratch(?) sound, reminds of an old Eminem track. I'd say a few more layers and this would be slick, maybe a horn, guitar, and piano trio on the melody. I like the samples at the begining, the gritty guiter riff is sick. Maybe it'd sound aight if you threw some chopped voc samples in for a hook piece. Good stuff man, just keep at it and keep developing your style.
That shifty snare might be the sample of the coin flip. I'm pretty proud that it fits so well with the drums. But I hear you, this definetly is not finished, I'm collabing on the bass with my old producer, so expect a fuller, sexier version of this song in the future. Thanks for the review freinds, Happy New Year.
I think you would do well makeing that lead more electric and throw a more wholesome bass. I've listened to a few of your songs and you sound like you could develope into a pretty good dub-step Dj. Great concepts, with some good samples to match and a good tweak on the actual sound of you instruments like the resonance of the drums and reverb, flanges and what not. The sound is "flat" because it sounds like a bunch of presets. Don't be afraid to use a few mediums to mix, like head phones, then monitors, then burn and take it to the car is what I do with my vocals to hear it across all soundscapes. I don't know what program you are using, and I'm no producer, but I believe what berdin was talking about with 'soft' was the flat sound of the (I assume) un-mixed arrangement. keep droppin shit and try to hook up with sum of the cats on here and other sites and around your town that may know more about mixing within the program you are using. Forums are a great place to scour knowledge from people that want to take the time to push an idea. Anyways, thats my ten cents. Now that I spent my coinss I'ma take the toss and check out the rest of your stuff!
Now this is why I post my stuff on Newgrounds. I'm using Ableton, and have really gotten my teeth into it the past 3 months, it feels like every song I find a new essence to my style. I just had my goodfriendproducer over and he was schooling me on laying basslines. I'm here to learn, and this review is helping me do that. -1-
little simple... add more layers and musicality
my 5/5 was way more powerful than the NOOB that left a 0 without commenting.
not a bad song, but a little soft. better than mine still
I'm interested in your definition of soft, and how you would harden it.
