Greatest DnB song i've heard in a while. The lyrics are amazing. Just, a perfect song in general

I like it. A lot. And the vocals may be loud but they are good vocals. :D

Keegs responds:

I totally agree! haha. Thanks for the review! :)

shit what a cracking singer, but let down I feel by lacking production imo

I love the lyrics, arrangement, chords and general composition of the track my problems I think are solely on the production side of things

okay, here we go
-firstly, the vocals I think are way too loud in comparison to the rest of the mix, I say you should bring everything up volumes wise and bring the vocals down a bit (if you're having trouble with clipping you could eq out some frequencies and try parallel compression on them)
-I think most of your instruments sounded too dry, maybe try adding in some more atmospheric effects or a pad
-the bass should be alot more bassy
-I wasn't a fan of your drum samples either (probably intentional but still) the snare felt way too weak and electronic, I would of loved a brighter snare - longer tail, more live feel and bit more punchy/compressed
-the kick was technically good, punchy + bassy enough but I didn't like the drum machine feel of it (like the snare)
-I couldn't really hear the hats too much either, I'd say more top end - and whilst I'm on hats, you could of done with more of them! just to fill out the drums a bit more
-also I didn't think the harmonising parts of the vocals really harmonised well
-contrary to the whleoa I feel the opposite haha, vocals are too loud and the effects sound fine I quite like them
-love the strings :P
-liked the filters on the drums
-the half time section was cool in terms of idea but the drum samples have way too little tail to carry it through

anyways catchy tune, the more I listen the more it grows on me haha one of the better, well executed dnb tunes I've heard on ng (of course all the above is just my opinion)
shit that was a longer review then I meant to do

Keegs responds:

Holy cow! Haha. Thanks for the criticism. I agree with all of it. I just did a House/Trance song with the same vocalist trying to right the wrongs of this track!

I was worried that the vox were too low so I brought them up and set the master to pump slightly whenever she comes in but now that you point it out, it does seem too overpowering and kills the groove.

Thanks again!


I am not a fan at all with the echo on her voice. Would love to listen to it if it was a solid voice, no echo or theater effect added and maybe if the voice was a little louder.

Not a fan of the vocals.

Everything sounds sloppy and repetitive.

Keegs responds:

Thanks for the review!
