This one was SO MUCH FUN to make! I learned how to make that wah-wah effect like you hear in many dubstep songs. Don't worry, it's still drum n' bass. Brought back some favorite instruments. created all new ones. Out of 12 instrument slots 8 of them were my creations. It's one of the most frustrating and yet coolest parts of making music.

This one took about three weeks to make. Took a lot of studying and learning functions and just detail work. I hope you guys like it. Give it a review, a vote, and if you're feeling brave a download. Thanks for the listen!


I agree with the review below, this does sound like something from crash bandicoot, which is a plus because I love crash.

Okay, time for the R4R task.

1-) That part at 3:51 feels really good, I definitely see that as the soundtrack of a water level.
2-) The percs are lively and charming, they definitely help imagine a scenery for this.
3-) This sort of... "hype" fast-up beat I'm not fond of, but here it fits really well.

Not likey:
1-) It is a little repetitive for my taste, but that's my taste.
2-) The chirping birds and environmental sounds are good for the intro and end, but in the middle I don't think they are needed.

This is a good track, great for a platforming game or something similar. Effort went into this. Keep it up, buddy.

Now THAT'S a review! So glad I posted in the R4R thread!

Yeah, drum n' bass isn't for everybody. Matter of fact my roommate hates it (but somehow loves dubstep)

I definitely tried to upplay the whole water thing, so I'm really to to hear it worked. Mixed with a little electricity of course cause hey, the level looks pretty electric and colorful.

I do agree on the birds after hearing it more and more. Except for that 3:51 spot. However yeah in the intro-bridge yeah maybe could've taken it out for a bit. I'm gonna say that was laziness mixed with anxiety and excitement. Not laziness actually, kow what that was? Just that it was near the final step of creation and I was so excited to just get it out there, I didn't take the time to really edit much of the sound effect. I did edit the volume so it wasn't overpowering.

Thanks for the review! Glad you liked it. Good luck out there

Your newest track here sounds alot like the Crash Bandicoot main map music! Was that part of the inspiration for the different sound vibrations, diverse musical notes & fast up-beat extra unique instrumentals & electronic techniques?

No, actually a lot of it just comes from listening to DnB on iHeartRadio or Pandora. Guys like Netsky and DC Breaks inspired this one.

Actually, Crash Bandicoot did inspire parts of this. Not that mini map though, you remember that level where you have to ride the tiger?
