Truely Exceptional, Would make AFX proud
The drums do need some work like the other reviewers have said, and that's why I docked the score down to a 9.
But really this song is quite exceptional, certainly one of the best songs I've heard on the Audio Portal.
The melody is catchy, and the contrast between the harsh bassline and the melody reflects Aphex Twin's style.
Perhaps along with the drums, this songs biggest problem is the form. If you look at AFX songs like Vordhosbn or Fenix Funk, the melody itself transforms through the song as new melodies are brought in. Here the introduction of new meldoies is a tad bit akward, although the melodies themselves are fantastic and complement each other.
For improvement, all I can say is look at Fenix Funk 5's first minute, and see how the first thrashing beat is replaced by a rough turning sound, and a light synth sound appears in the top octaves, gradually harmonizing with itself as it expands, and the turning sound dies down and completes, not just by quieting itself, but by turning more slowly, and more roughly, as the melody reaches its apex and begins to move through itself rapidly. At that point the main melody wears itself out and ends. The second melody than introduces itself.
There's definitly a great piece here, and it foreshadows a lot of potential.
yeah...it has Afex Twin personality...
it's lacking a bit in the drums though...the drums need more soul in them in the begining...I was so happy when I heard the diversity near the end! Keep it up! By the way...this is a bit slow to be true D&B...just a tad bit...love the song though!
thanx alot. I try to make all my songs sound like aphex twin. if there was an IDM catagory i would have put it in that
Sounds a bit like Aphex Twin. Nice panning at start and short snares and piano rolls. This is real good, with the chimes and all. Awesome.
Thanx alot, i really tried to make it sound like aphex twin.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
