I've been producing a lot of breaks and hip hop this last week for a comedy rap act called Drive-Bys & High.

It's been a week of pure production so I decided to take that energy back to the Pomp stuff today and made this.

Been listing to a lot of Bonobo and Space Dimension Controller recently, not sure if any of that comes across in this. Pretty happy with the Tycho vibe synth preset I made in Serum.

So yeah, free download, If you like it, have it.

I guess I'll drop some more info about the track and my set up for it:

DAW: FL Studio

VST: SERUM, Massive, Reaktor, Maschine, iZotope, Fab Saturn, Solid Bus Comp.

I can't stress enough how good SERUM actually is, if you have £80 going spare or the US equivalent It's 100% worth it. Having so much fun with it at the moment and if you're not into drawing in your own waveforms there's a ridiculous amount already out there for free download. It's the most creative synth I've worked with, it really does give new meaning to 'automation.'

Cheers Jonny, I'll keep working hard at it.

Lovely vibes. Really enjoyed this track - absolutely hearing the bonobo and tycho influence, maybe a little four tet too? Only gripe is that the synth lead melody was too buried in the mix (too much compression for my taste), i would have liked it to really pop out and be the focal point of the track. In any case very happy to stumble across this one. well done!

Cheers NiCK, I still feel that mixing is one of my weaker points when it comes to production, I've had a tendency in the past just to go mad with the amount of sounds I'm using to keep things interesting inadvertently making 'swamp music' (Just a muddy mess really.)

Other than panning, eqing and compression are there any techniques you've learnt that have made a big difference to your mix downs?

Just listened to Stalagmite and it fills out really nice, really clear sounds, nothing clashing at all.
