I kind of wanted to go with something gorillaz Demon Days-esque with this one. sadly sans vocals as of yet, but i may add some later. I absolutely love this beat though.

4/20/15: Messed around with the mixing and the piano sound.


I don't know why, but I'm reminded strongly of Dilbert 2. Maybe it's the really soft percussion. IMO, that's a good thing, because I like the music from that (If you have no idea what I'm on about, youtube it). Not necessarily reminding me of the Gorillaz('s?) work, though.

Production-wise, the track should be normalized. It's really soft. It doesn't ask for much compression, maybe a little bit of EQing, but above all I shouldn't have to adjust the volume unless you're going for some kind of artistic statement. If you were, it was lost on me.

I'm not sure the panning is as effective as it could be - each instrument seems like its in its own space. Maybe pan before reverb/delay?

Composition-wise, it's kind of dissonant. Mainly because of the persistent high-resonance sound effect. I'm sure it can be used to creative effect, but it kind of skews the tone of the piece a little too far away from what you're going for. Perhaps use it a little less or make it a little less obvious.

Keep up the good work!

Yeah I messed with the mix I originally had a week ago and didn't listen to it again until now. The drums were a bit higher in the mix before, and the piano less muddy. In retrospect, I think I made it a bit worse than i originally had it. On the bright side, I can work on the other pointers you've given me when i go to undo my inebriated attempts at being an audio engineer! haha
