That's a really punchy set of drums, but they feel a little too mechanical for me. Maybe you can liven them up with a little reverb. A couple of the sounds in the intro sounded a little cheesy, but that's just my personal tastes. Thought that vocal sound was pretty cool in the break at 1:04, but this is a pretty weird mix you got going on.
DnB breakdown was nice, but let me emphasize on the reverb thing I said earlier, because I know what you mean when you say your mix feels a little "soulless." Focus on some other subtleties like delay and stereo effects if you want to breathe a little more life into your track.
My two cents. I may not know what I'm talking about!
thanks for the review, i was reading up on reverbs tips up before, so i'll your two cents as good value. :P
Hello Stapless! I don't see why you say that you suck at arrangement. The beginning was a nice buildup moment to the more melodically charged section after 1:00. That section ended cleanly at 1:49 with enough variation to keep the interest going all the way till the break at 2:00. At 2:30 there's something new to keep driving the track, and it's unpredictability allows that to go smoothly on to another break at 3:00!
If anything your arrangement skills are what's good and makes this track interesting! With the feeling of soulless, I may suggest making more alternative drum patterns... what I mean is, taking the first section for example, and creating 3 alternative grooves that would fit with that, and then adding variety by cycling through different drum patterns within that section.
I do agree that the mix is good, and the vocals rocked! So awesome job and feel proud of your arrangement skills!
Cheers for the feedback, kinda feel proud now haha.
It had a great build-up, with the start being a few drum beats and a laser like noise, and then into several noises. It had nice beat and was an overall great song.
