My first proper attempt at Drum-and-Bass (more on the liquid side) that I made on request. Please do listen and enjoy!

Pleasent peice

So this was nice and some good piano on this one, I like the piano on this really nice sound quality, This was pretty long and I like the mixture of the drums in this, you have a good style and some good talent here so nice work here indeed, you should make more like this and more focus on the drums with this one.

I like the ominous vibe at the beginning. It sounded cool how you used the piano for both the dark atmospheric bit and a brighter, more melodic sound at the beginning. The drums at around :45 mesh with the counterpoint pretty well. I wasn’t a huge fan of the string samples shortly thereafter, however. They sound pretty fake, and also cut off suddenly at 1:16, without adding much to the piece IMO. At the drop at 1:30, the kick becomes lost in the mix, and in the general I think you could’ve made the drums a bit stronger and crisper. The chords at the drop are probably doing most of the distorting. I’d be really careful about how you equalize them. You have a good sense of melody and harmony, and the composition is overall really good. Strong transitions and structure, although I wasn’t a huge fan of the buildup-to-outro model at 3:05. That said, the real downfall of this piece is in the instrumentation and mixing. I think those should be your main areas of focus going forward. Keep at it, man. ;)

7.25/10

Thank you man for the constructive feedback! Will definitely keep this in mind for the future!
Honestly, the strings were a sort of an add-on to the main piece... didn't work too much on their expression and whatnot...
Yeh, the chords do distort quite a bit... I kinda wanted that effect tbh but it went too far I guess...
My mixing needs work, I know, but in my newer stuff the drums are hopefully a lot better...
Anyway man, thanks for the honest views!

I like the melody of this! Its so calm and chilled.

Turn up the drums and turn the piano down and you'd have a 5 star track! There's also some weird distortion thing going on at the drop (1:27) at the beginning of every two measures.

Also, recommendation for the future: do a bass heavy dnb song. I'd want to hear that.

DJ-DG responds:

Thanks for the feedback man! I will give your suggestion a shot soon!

I really like the melody, drums are good too, great song!

DJ-DG responds:

Thanks for the review, man! Appreciate it!
