Abandoning the Past

About a year ago I did this collaboration with Mint Pixel soundcloud.com/mint-pixel . I totally forgot to upload the piece that he finished off. I was just listening to it, though, and I was like "huh, this is awesome," so here you go. :D

Believe it or not, the composition is ALL MINE. I wanted to point that out because this sounds unlike anything else I've ever composed, including a fairly weird progression and a really insane arp solo, and it'd be pretty natural to assume that it was him.

What he did was essentially mix it down twice as well as I could have done at the time. So for that I owe him my thanks. :D

Given the genre, the intro was a little unexpected, although I did enjoy a taste of your more orchestral work that you used to make. The transition into :38 was pretty cool. I'll admit I've grown quite fond of your punchy, mid-range snares. The arpeggios at 1:36 had a really soothing, flowy vibe, but then you sort of cut them short to make way for this drum fill or something, which sort of threw me off. I will say that I really liked the exotic themes it had. It sounds like some sort of Middle Eastern-inspired track. The mixing is awesome as usual, and I never doubted for a second that you composed the whole thing. ;) Also, the ending here is a lot better than in the last piece I reviewed IMO because you really scaled back the energy towards the end and focused on the atmosphere. Insta-faved and downloaded. I applaud your efforts, sir...which is awkward because I'm sitting alone in my room in the middle of the night. Anyway, hope to hear from you soon! ^^

Yeah, it really sounds very interesting :) Its awesome, especially the variation of soundeffects are good. But are you sure you can count this as DnB? DnBs have usually another beat, like K___S____K__S this is more the halfstep style, like Drumstep K___()___S.

If I had a nickel for every time someone said "this is in the wrong genre..."
