This loop has been created for NewSoul.

The beginning is a bit repetitive, listen to the end and judged.

I like it, its a nice tune. Keep up the good work

It's funky

Smooth and clean but the rhytm and the melody are a little bit out of range and clunky...

And the gerne is wrong.

But it's smooth though

Keep going!

Wrongly categorized, and a bit odd?

First off, this sounds like it was made from completely pre-made loops and that bothers me; This song had lots of parts where the drums/ guitar/ bass just drop out with no notice. The drum loops layered on top of each other are really noticeable, and I can't even tell if you made any of this yourself.

This is not drum and bass, and certainly not a song worth a half-detailed review :/
Try again buddy :/

It has no flow.

While it's categorized under Drum And Bass, you know that actual DnB music is more akin to techno, house and stuff, right? Yes, this indeed has drums and it DOES have bass, but the genre is misplaced wholly in my opinion.

There's ONE guitar riff in here...and it's only a few strums short of "Hot Blooded" by Foreigner. It comes in a little late, that drum and bass strum wears out its welcome about five seconds too long. Right when the guitar loop goes on for one measure, you INEXPLICABLY stop the drums and bass, only to restart it for a little bit, then stop the bass line, then...ugh...there's clearly a pattern to this, it's just not very good. It's not tastefully structured. You have the same three drum lines playing here and there, ONE bass line, ONE guitar line, and some lyrics, that just kinda start and stop here and there and everywhere.

It's rather irritating how all of these different elements are turning on and off, when as the song progresses, so should the actual SONG. It all comes off sounding very fragmented and very amateurish. There's no theme and it doesn't go anywhere but to remind us of how disjointed it is by restarting. It starts off sounding like it could be funky, but the guitar sounds very pop, maybe even country or light rock, so that's out...and the lyrics sound even poppier, MAYBE even techno worthy...the piano detracts from what ever theme it was initially headed for even more. This isn't a song, it's a clip, and it's having a rather severe identity crisis. It sounds half finished, and it's got no rhythm.

Consider this, it might not be it's best asset when the bulk of the author's comments are about it are "The beginning is a bit repetitive, listen to the end and tell me what you think." I can't vote highly on this, because it ain't jammable, and it was likely compiled in MTV music generator or the likes in an hour or two at most, so not a whole lot of sweat and passion went into this. What's redeemable about it?
