KingKilo responds:

It's a Dutch thing. We eat that shit on the reg'. As for you thinking DnB is your favorite genre, I believe you've made a very, very wise decision. Thank you for liking my song, I appreciate it.

tomaten, pasta en pindakaas...

te gek

KingKilo responds:

Klinkt lekker.

The bass and effects were right on man. That panning was really slick too. This track is getting me pumped to start doing dnb again. Really hard track you got.

Things I would have worked on:

That snare was really hollow. I'd have layered on top something really thin to give it some more salty flavor. Hi/mid frequency flavor. This track is mostly bass and mid. I might have added some sort of shaker or aux percussion to help liven things up. I'm not a fan of that fade out. A DJ won't want to spin a short track that ends on a fade out. Not like that's important though. I never write my own songs in a way that favors what a DJ would want. Write what makes you happy :D

One more idea, a vocal sample of some sort would help give the track some character. Ian Slider once told me that samples from songs, videos or movies help create atmosphere in a track and gives people something to remember. He also taught me about compression. Google Space Laces. That's him today :D

KingKilo responds:

First of all, thank you for taking the time to write me a helpful review, with good, constructive feedback.
Now, I could take everything you pointed out and respond to it, but I'd have to agree with you on everything, so that saves us a bit of time.

Instead of the 'fade out', what would you suggest? And yes, some vocal samples could have worked, though I have no experience in using those. So I'll watch some tutorials on that!
And I'll definitely check out Ian Slider.

Thank you!
