Every so often I get a deep, primal urge to make a trap-influenced instrumental and I do not know why. This is the latest one, I kinda wish I had someone to spit on it but eh. Also I have no idea whether I can get away with putting this in the hip hop category so it's going in "Fusion"



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like the creative bass line and quirky instrumentation. The mood is great - pretty ominous, yet also engaging. The part at :32 didn’t seem to build on the intro very much, and overall this piece is pretty slow to develop. I would’ve liked to see more melodic content earlier in the piece. The moving notes that are in the texture just aren’t very upfront in the mix (e.x. The the pizzicato-y synth at 2:00 or so), which doesn’t help your case of creating strong melodic content. It also has a sense of continuity about it, which I would’ve liked to see you break at some point in favor of structural relief. This piece has a lot of tension in it, and that tension is never really resolved. It’s certainly a unique and engaging piece. I didn’t notice any problems with the mixing or mastering. Cool piece, albeit one you could’ve done a lot more with compositionally. Keep at it, man!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

You're spot on in your assessment that this doesn't really belong in the hip-hop category. However, it has that distinct hip-hop influence in the percussion. It feels a lot like the background music for an Adult Swim bump. I like the samples and sound effects chosen, but something about the instruments feel a little too bright. Considering the overall composition of the song, I can't help but feel like things should be a little more subdued, maybe slightly more atmospheric.

The drums, especially the snare, are in your face and seldom cease up over the course of the song. Give the snare some breathing room - maybe automate a filter on it, change up the sound slightly during certain sections to avoid it from being so static. The same can be said and done for the "woop" sound effect you have echoing in the background sporadically. It's just slightly on the brighter side, which kinds of gives off this harsher vibe to me. Maybe that was intentional, but I feel like this song would sound great if it took a bunch of xanax and stumbled around, so to speak.

Instrumentally, the composition is very well made and defined, the melodies and basslines flow well with each other and I have little complaint about the melodic element. Overall, considering my minor dislikes with the mixing, it's a song worthy of 4.5 stars. It wouldn't take very much to push this one up to a 5, for sure.

Yeah, my worry with this one was that it sounded just the tiniest bit too bright. I might turn down on the highs for certain instruments a bit, or edit some pitches. Thanks very much for the feedback, the xanax comment made me laugh, and I'm glad you enjoyed it overall.
