Author Comments

After a creative dry spell for literally my whole summer, I give you After the Storm. I guess it falls under the ambient DnB catagory, but it plays around with a few different beats and riffs. Very atmospheric, so listen all the way through and feel it! yeah. - MobiusIII


Nice ambient

I like the intro. I don't even know why, I just like the "noise" here. It sounds interesting and sets a good mood for the song that follows.

The rhythm is pretty good and the melodies sound nice. I also like that you use various sound effects throughout the song. Helps to carry that mood that was created in the intro.

The outro could use some work, though. The ending is a bit sudden. Also the "storm effect" there sounds a bit out of place. The song is called "After the storm", after all. So maybe a different sound effect would be nice. Maybe the singing of birds, or something like that.

Anyway, great song!

Thanks for the review, and the constructive criticism. I'm glad you enjoyed it!


Honestly an interesting feel to it. The good thing about dry spells is that once they've been overcome, the next piece is pretty damn good. This being no exception.

Sure enough it has some DnB elements. I think what I like the most is your use of sound effects, like what I could make out as the sounds of an ocean (or just white noise) acting as a backup for the rest of the track.

The beats are real nice, done with some good samples, and the ambient synths you've used are also quite well done, really helps in fleshing out the track and create a special kind of atmosphere, which I'm sure is what you were going for.

The intro was really good, nice buildup and a spoiler into what was to come, and the outro was pretty decent as well, not a normal way to end a song, but a really good one for this particular track and/or genre.

Thanks for the review! I guess dry spells are good for something. I must have started and scrapped like 6 projects before getting this one rolling. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it - thanks for listening!


Kind of reminds you of watching a storm and soon seeing it end as you see puddles everywhere and everything outside simply looks glossy and shiny as the sun tries to peak but cannot as night time approaches outside. You enjoy the subtle sound and feel of the thunder and lightning help you fall asleep and see in the morning that the storm is still raging on for some reason.

The storm sounds are really nice here as they help create an atmosphere for the song I think. The synth is really pleasing on the ears and makes you feel happy hearing the ambient appeal of it. The light click sound makes you think a bit of metal bells. The bass line was nice I think. The drums are very calming and soothing on this piece.

Overall, very nice and calming atmospheric song.

Thanks for the review! I'm glad the song was able to conjure up some chill imagery for you - that's what its all about!

Smooth and atmospheric!

The sounds in this song were very chill and relaxing :) almost reminded me of an Adult Swim Bump artist named Tycho for a second :) (That's a huge complement, take my word for it.) :D
The bass tones in this track were also very chill and relaxing.
Definitely didn't see the drum break coming at 3:45, but the transition was pretty cool. The clav sample you used here reminded me of hazy maze cave from Super Mario 64 :)

Only thing i would change; maybe add a little more to your first drum break, and bring out your bass kick a little more.

All in all
Great track.
Super chill!

Thanks for the compliment! It does sound like an AS bump, now that you brought it up. I'll continue tweaking this one, for sure. Thanks for taking time out to write a thoughtful review, I appreciate it!
