First off congrats on the front page award thats always a nice little thing to have, now secodnly you have some nice work here really good quality on this piece and I was pretty happy with the quality and a good mix of sounds on this one, dont see anything this needs changing you are a brilliant artist.

No changes needed.


Trippy, trepid, with plenty of attitude. Can imagine this being used in some kind of Madness! Nice DnB, and Happy Pico Day!


The first 20 seconds of this song were the best because of that gritty melody. I feel like the synths should have been as low pitched throughout the song as they were for the intro because it kind of lost me until the half way point where it picked back up again. Whatever that was in those first 20 seconds, I want to hear more of it.

This is really cool. It's such a great coincidence that I clicked this track because I was listening to a song yesterday that had a bassline with that same crazy, wobbly modulation and I was wondering how it was created. Is it done manually with midi notation, or with automation or is it an instrument that you push a button and it spazzes out randomly by itself? Or something else?

Great track!

PS. The song I was referring to is Can o' Salt from Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy).

Sequenced responds:

It's done via automating cutoffs and lfos in massive or serum. It's simple stuff really, they're not the most complicated sounds you could make.

Boots, this sounds like an old calyx & teebee. Anyone that played GTA 3 would recall the MSX channel. This could fit right into that mix. Trivia: the MSX radio channel was a 25 minute cut from a Timecode mix when he was spinning for the Moving Shadow Label. Moving Shadow was a prolific name in dnb back then.

It's interesting the dnb scene was gobbled up by dubstep back in 2005 when top tier names in dnb started deflecting and changing names. People like Spor became Feed Me, Rob Swire ruined Pendulum before becoming Knife party. Then he ruined Knife Party too. Ewun became Kill The Noise, cornandbeans became Spacelaces, and everything else went to hell after that.

People stopped making this sound but imo, it never stopped being edgy and cool. I still bump Moving Shadow mixes sometimes. Long live the groove.
