This is probably my best attempt at mixing to date.

Things tend to sound MUCH better when everything is mixed 'n mastered correctly. I should know though, this took 6 hours to get sounding right and some parts needed something more, etcetera. All in all, this took 2 days to complete.

My main influence while making this was Desolate. Particularly his use of on-beat vinyl SFX and piano. (He favors the white keys.) Some may call him a Burial clone but others, myself included, think he's carved out his own stylish set of grooves.

The aforementioned influence is also why I put this into the Dubstep category. It really won't fit anywhere else and it's also 135BPM.

I hope my fans (and others who happen upon this) enjoy this choon.

Leave your honest opinion!



Sporting some great ambience here. I can't quite say that this is like dubstep. Doubly so 'old skool' dubstep. I mean, I'm quite familiar with the early scene in dubstep (from the likes of Emalkay to even the latest iterations of 'brostep' with hacks like Skrillex) and this feels a little bit more like downtempo zenoesque (and yes, I get that there is no category for this on NG:AP). However I am not here to argue why I believe the genre assignment is incorrect. That is a topic for another time mayhaps.

- Ambience. Holy shit, Batman. The atmosphere is so thick in this track you could cut it with a knife. Good stuff.
- The overarching theme appears to be rather dark and rough.

- While this I feel is a track that offers some great ambience, I just feel that it somewhat lacks any sort of meaningful progression. Maybe that is the point and I have somehow missed it... But this kind of threw me off. I would appreciate it for what it is, listen to it once, but likely leave it at that. It didn't quite stir the juices sufficiently.
- The baby crying kept throwing me off. Quite an interesting sample, although it made it a little weird to enjoy the track.

Keep at it,

It has been waaay too long since I last went through your catalog. This is great. I love the ambience of it. Gives it a really creepy/sinister sound. Is that you doing the spoken word, or is it sampled? Keep up the good work bro

Thanks for the love bruv!

nice wubs m8
sick choon
check out my beets

nah, but for real, the groove on this one's solid (personally I'd use different drum sounds, but this has a sound to it) but what I reallllyyyy feel is those atmospherics. Personally, I usually spend more than 6 hours fucking with the mix, but you've achieved a really nice tone and depth. Huge fan of that. And this definitely isn't just some Burial clone stuff, this is way more clean & also forlorn. Feeling this homie.
