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.

you should make more like this and more focus on the drums


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. ;)

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!
