This is an original drum & bass project that I've been messing with for a few days now :p.
I consider this to still be a work in progress though; I would still like to add a few things before I put this up for sale.

But for now... I hope you guys can dig this NG Cut of "Dawn"
Enjoy :D

Strangely happy

Well it makes me think of video games a lot and seems to have an aquatic nostalgic feel to it as well as if you were saying good bye to a friend of yours for a very long time ans you both part ways to try to help out different parts of the Digimon world and that such with your Digimon friend who has been there with you since the start as well. The beat feels pretty cool though.

The synth for most of the start gives a sad feeling along with video games for the most part. Then the second beat comes and the new synth beat gives a feeling of encountering many hardships along the way and having to help a lot of people out. The dub sounds are nice.

The drums sound really fast and quite catchy as well. The dub kind of sounds like someone trying to say something though. Like the always going up sound I hear from the synth though which is great.

Overall ,very happy and nice beat here.

Review Request Club

cool story bro.

think you're not very creative, but was a low vote really necessary just because I reviewed and voted your song an 8 AFTER I said that I reviewed it and voted it an 8? -Medic

DreamEater responds:



You really know how to make a DnB track!
Awesome FX, and the modulation was supreme!
I really enjoyed this. Not much to add. Maybe the main lead a little repetitive but it's not too bad.
its really professional sounding
keep it up!

DreamEater responds:

Thanks so much Chimy727!
I'm really glad you enjoyed this track :D
I've been pretty stuck on it myself lately ^^;

I'm still really conflicted about that lead synth though; I really don't know if I wanna change it or not>.<

Thanks again for your input!

I liked it.

It was very good. Especially when it dropped. Before it dropped though, it got slightly repetitive and felt empty, causing that dreamy feeling to disappear. It's fine though. I liked what you got man. Keep it up! :D 4/5 8/10

DreamEater responds:

I do plan on adding some subtle pads and fx to the intro, so it may sound kind of empty at the beginning as-is x.x

Thanks so much for the review! :D

wip, i get it, but:

I really hate if someone not post any comments for a vote, so here it is:
I think the main synth is a little bit raw for this kind of dnb, and it also become repetitive after ~3 mins. but at ~3:55 it's suddenly change, the track progresses, the filter did his job. if i were you, i would experimenting with this part, backed up with some heavy sine waves! i think if you do this, it can be a great track! oh, one more thing: i don't have any problems with the track's other elements, so thats why the 6/10 | 3/5
i hope i can helped you in some way

DreamEater responds:

Definitely bro!
Thank you so much for the review.

I think I will experiment around with my lead synth a little more, I can see how it doesn't really fit with everything else. :(

Thanks again for your input bud, but was a 6 really necessary just because you didn't like one of my leads?
