What can I say, I never really listened to liquid DnB before, but I must say I really enjoyed this.

The overall composition was simple and based on a bass-line and a brass instrument... exactly the kind of thing I'd listen when I'm not in the mood to do much. Really deep and emotional. The start made it even better, by starting with a synth and some muffled drums :)

One thing that did bother me though was the mixing. I mean it was fine, everything was right, except for the bass. It seemed to overwhelm the whole track when it came in, and it made my subwoofer go crazy.

Any idea what the speech goes on about? I had no clue what it was saying, but I could hear a few references to God and other few things. I'd be awesome if you could just post a transcript of that! :)

That was the only problem I could note however. Everything else was just perfect. You nailed it!

Thank you so much for the review! :) I will put the lyrics down in the description or you can look up eckhart tolle from being upset to (it will pop up after that). And it's the first minute and a half of his speech. But will put the lyrics somewhere!
Now, I am fairly new with mixing and mastering so I can see how and why the sub bass was overpowering, because if it wasn't overpowering, it was basically non existent. But thank you for your review! I'll be sure to put the lyrics up soon! :)

This is such an amazing blend of intensity and calmness.....i didn't think it was possible! Very impressive :) It makes you want to sit back and relax while you drive fast in a way...interesting. Now newgrounds has a thing against samples with the rules with copyright and all but with that aside, i like it in this song. Such a beautiful song :) good job.

ShiftingConix responds:

Oh crap didn't know there were rules against like.... Speeches being sampled. I can understand rules being against sampling other people's music or something g without their approval.

Anyway, thank you! I haven't seen many songs like it before (not to sound.... Conceited?) but it is a bit different I guess! :)

God... damn. Mad atmospheric and that bass. Love a good DnB track. Something a guy could really space out to... get really introspective with... maybe ponder the complexities of life and existence.

ShiftingConix responds:

That was my goal with this song! I tried making it to make people think after listening to it. Thank you for the review though :)

I really enjoyed the beginning and the build-up to the first drum break. It's very smooth and it transitions nicely. To me, everything was put together quite nicely!


ShiftingConix responds:

Thank you very much! It's very much appreciated :)
