make tha drums pop
I like this A LOT. It's like very mellow Trap with an incredibly catchy melody. Mellow to the point to keep you chilled out but at the same time, just enough energy to make you bounce your head. The chopped vocals was an excellent addition to the song. Amazing work my friend!
Yeah after that initial buildup (which is great btw) you're expecting to drop into something faster, but the drop is actually pretty slow and comparatively much emptier than the build. Once we get into like 1:00 it's pretty awesome though, maybe you could just drop directly into that?
I like all the detail work with the hats and speedy percussion.
My main complaint is that it's quite repetitive. After the first build and drop into about 1:30 I feel like I've heard the whole song, and then it just repeats the stuff I've already heard. Why not just cut it into a 2 minute song and be done with it?
Overall the use of samples and stuff was pretty awesome, I love the 1:10 section a lot. This song really just needs a little work on the arrangement to be awesome.
So I think the only real thing that is working against you on this is the first 25 seconds with the instruments and sample filtering in and almost deceiving the listener into believing that it's something that it's not.
After the first 25 seconds, the drop feels somewhat disappointing on one hand. On the other, it's a very groovy drop. Usually, the explanation to this sort of conflict is simply the way it's produced. I know telling you to just try mixing it differently isn't very helpful feedback, but this one has really stumped me. Telling you to do one specific thing or another just wouldn't be sincere.
Actually, one thing that I can put my finger on is the hi hats. I think you could have tightened the tails just the slightest bit to keep the hits from sounding like they're on top of each other.
I don't mean to sound too critical of this track, because I do genuinely like it, but there's just something about that drop that tells me that it's not all the way there yet,
i feel like the problem with the drop is that the first buildup is just too empty
maybe the kick isn't loud enough too, still haven't had a listen on a proper system yet so can't really tell for myself
thanks for the review!
Lacks power. I don't know why. Feel like this tune has plenty of potential, but that the rhythm of the drums doesn't do anything to give it any umph.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
