Another try to move into the trap direction

Made with FL Studio, used mostly massive.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice intro going on, like the simple beat there. Very dark sounding. The drop was really cool, but felt almost the same as the intro. It was also a bit repetitive. The water noises right after the drop ends work really well. Overall pretty good, I like the beat. Also the ending was awesome.

It starts out wonderfully dark and smooth. But by the halfway point it started to loose me. There's a point by 1:37 where it calms down, but then this line comes up that i feel makes the dark theme rather overblown and this goes on almost till the end. Where the sound disappears and it returns to the groove it had going for at the beginning.

This overblown bit is not only the somewhat loud instrument used, to me it's the two chord progressions it loops on. Where the dissonance and the eerie silence of most of the background instruments comes off as a somewhat childish bit of crazy "I'm am going SO crazy, OH MAN, all the murders will happen soon if nobody STOPS ME"

This could have been avoided if there was something to support the lone instrument but when that happens it becomes even more "crazy" which is what took me out of the song in the first place.

It seems to be part of a progression you were going for were things get bigger and bigger where the crowd pulses, when the song actually just needed to take a ride down the creepy alleyways and let the victim just come along.

Sweet mixing and mastering by the way.

I really like the dark feeling within this one. Also I love your sounds (especially the pads are quite awesome) and that bell at the beginning draws you directly into this piece. The trap beat is also quite catchy.
The main problem I see within this track is that some of the melodies sound a bit random in some points. Most of the time they are fine, like the groovy line with the arabic feeling which starts at 30 secs.
The melody line which starts at 1:50 is a good example for what I meant above. There are some tones which in it which sound a bit off. I get that you wanted to put in some disharmonic stuff for the dark feeling but if you use dissonances randomely they sometimes sound a bit wrong: In normal tonality dissonances always lead somewhere and are always resolved in certain ways (simple case: dominant leads to tonica). If you introduce some tonal system (like a scale or something), it is hard for the listener to mix this with random dissonances because you just expect something else to come, which doesn´t. Does this make sense? It is different if you do complete atonal stuff because then the listener doesn´t have a reference in his ear and looses the connection. I hope I do not sound to theoretic here and probably I wouldn´t talk about this to long if you wouldn´t have posted in the R4R thread.
Mixing and mastering are definitely good and probably better than all of my mixing, so I don´t have any tips here ;)
The transition at 1:30 sounds a bit strange, like there is a very short moment just empty silence or something. Maybe us a bit more reverb here for the tailing? Actually I have a similar problem at a track I´m working at the moment. Stupid transitions...
The ending is cool. Reminds me a bit of dark circus music or something ;)
As I said: It´s a cool track and I really love the dark feeling in this one.

Und am Ende hab ich dann gemerkt, dass ich auch auf Deutsch hätte schreiben können. Wär wahrscheinlich schneller gegangen ;) Ich hoffe ich klang nicht zu negativ hier, weil der Track echt cool ist. Ich hatte nur zusammengeschrieben was mir aufgefallen, weil Du nach nem Review gefragt hattest...

SoTJake responds:

Hey, danke für deinen Review. Der Review kam überhaupt nicht negativ rüber, ich musste nur ein bisschen von meiner Musiktheorie reaktivieren ;)
Ja, der Part ab 1:50 war ein Experiment, ich hab da eigentlich nicht so viel hintergedacht, aber dafür sind ja Reviews da, um einen auf die Theorie dahinter aufmerksam zu machen.

Freut mich, dass dir der Track gefallen hat, ich werde mir deine Ratschläge zu Herzen nehmen :)
