Needs to be on the next Ridge Racer title!

Really liked the chord progression and synth work, I liked how the track had unexpected sections, I wasnt a fan of the plucked bass sound in the intro and I feel the snare lacked character which is essential in dnb!! Maybe better EQing and compression could help. I also loved the way you programmed lots of different drum pattern rather then just looping one. Good job man!

Chemiqals responds:

Thanks for the feedback! I definitely want to revisit DnB now that I have a slightly better grasp of EQing and effects! I'm glad you liked it too! =D

I loved that there were various contrasting sections in this that keep interest high, and the piano loop is fantastic.. great reverb and chords. Watch out for some of the harmonies conflicting in this track.

Chemiqals responds:

Thanks for the feedback! =)

DnB has so much variety it can be pretty difficult to make something special,
you did a great job tho :D

Chemiqals responds:

Thank you! Yeah, I'm finding some really amazing DnB stuff around! I definitely have a lot of learning to do. =)

I like the panning of the high pitched instrument. I feel like the drums get a bit too loud around the minute mark and its fighting with the piano to be loudest, although that may be intentional. Song does feel very video game-esque throughout. The overly loud drums are a problem for me though...
The composition is pretty nice, transitions are a bit rough but they work. After listening to the song twice, the intro really throws you for a loop cause the song seems like its gonna be much more chill rather than in your face with the slow panning and whatnot.

Chemiqals responds:

Thanks for the feedback! Being the first DnB song I've ever made, I definitely wanted the drums to stand out. I might have overdone the bass on them a bit, haha! I did want the intro to build slowly so that the climax of the song would be in stark contrast to it. =P

Thanks again! I really appreciate the feedback!
