I have been trying to exhaust my old folder of samples. This collage of sounds is an effort to clean my unused ones up.

Thoughts are appreciated!

Hook Lyrics:
Lock all your doors and kill the lights
No one's coming home tonight
Sun beats down don't you know?
Now our eyes are going cold

Female Lyrics:
You can't follow me
I go away
When I'm behind you
To be afraid

Please leave your honest opinion.

A lot of dissonance and lack of cohesion/melodic direction in this track. It does have a very jazzy feel to it, in that regard, sort of avant garde at points, but I really don't like all the stopping and starting, at least not with a really raw drum break like that. Needs some FX. Otherwise the track as a whole sounds relatively unmastered and piled on top of itself. When sampling, at least touch up some frequencies with the EQ and try to mesh the sound a little bit more. Warm and natural is the way to go!

Right off the bat, I’m not a huge fan of how that drum loop stops and starts. Not only does it wreck the flow that a drum beat is supposed to create, it also sounds really unnatural. The vocal samples at :12 sounded cool, but by around :24 the character of the piece changes greatly with the implementation of those warm strings. Then, you abruptly change back to the style of the intro, with the drum samples and another guitar. The mood of this piece is pretty cool, but the mix needs a lot of cleaning up. The piece just sounds muddy and distorted throughout. I’d suggest looking into a process called equalization to help solve this (searching for an “Equalizer” in your DAW is a great way to start). The woodwind solo at 1:43 also comes out of nowhere. You seriously need to consider how to create smoother transitions, in addition to more coherence in your tracks. The end of the piece doesn’t feel conclusive at all, and the piece has very little melodic content. Sorry this review has been so negative, but it has serious compositional and mastering flaws. Instead of making a piece that has a number of ideas that are expressed in succession (the guitar/strong beat sections, the sultry woodwind solos, the warm strings, the distorted vocal samples), I want you to try to create a texture that’s able to build off of previous ideas you’ve expressed in a way that gives the piece some direction. This will probably involve making a piece that’s pretty repetitive when you first try doing it, but without this model a track often sounds incoherent and jarring to the listener, and this piece is no exception. When you feel like you’ve made a piece that’s both coherent and smooth-flowing, PM me. I’ll give it a listen. Keep at it!
