RIGHT ON TIME, there's only one "double" drop because I started this YESTERDAY, so not specting to win. Also, my first attemp at Riddim, I find my inspiration in Getter (hence the name)

This is full of great composers, like F-777, metallica1136, Lich, Noisysundae. I've been following them since I joined NG, so, being here, head to head with them is enough for me :D GG WP

From reading your Author Comments, it seems like you didn't really have much time to work on this, which does explain the rather rushed feeling of the composition. There's just not a whole lot going on at one time, and while not every track needs a full-to-bursting sort of sound, this comes off as being much too sparse.

There's a lot of really high frequency synth happening, and then you add in some lower frequencies, but the mid-range feels incredibly empty pretty much from beginning to end. The bass does have a nice deep feel as I listen with headphones, and you've got some nice yet fairly basic dubs going on here and there, but I can really easily keep track of everything that's going on in a single listen. You can often tell a really solid track by the nuanced layers that are happening all throughout, and some of the best ones require at least two or three listens to really get a true grasp of everything that's going on.

The drop was honestly more than a little bit lackluster, and didn't really feel like a drop at all. Where was the tell-tale pause in the moment just before the heavy bass and Dubstep wubs take over? That preceding long, descending note felt uninspired and came off as being more than a little cheesy.

You certainly have potential, and the only way for any of us unlock it further is through experience. Keep on listening to those guys you admire without trying to emulate their styles too much. Be your own man and discover your own road. Let's see where your musical journey leads you...

Thanks! most of this was based on other songs and is not personal at all, I'll expand it later when I feel more inspired to do so, for now, thanks for taking the time to point weak spots (not sarcasm), I appreciate it, specially coming from you! next year is going to be different ;)

Catchy piece. The chord progression is a little cliche, as are several of the synths. The descending synth pattern at :55 was a little absurd, and the (drop?) at 1:24 was very minimalistic, and could’ve used some more high frequency tones to fill out the texture. You also needed a stronger transition at 1:49. The production quality is strong, although I really needed to hear some stronger melodic content and more development in the 2nd half of this piece. It has a bit of a stagnant structure, and overall is rather generic. There are some strong attributes of the atmosphere and rhythmic components, but I think this piece needed a lot more effort put into the composition. Keep at it, JaThu! :)


JaThu responds:

First of all thanks, and yes, it's mostly a basic piece with not much love. That's all in fact, thanks for the review and ofcourse I'm going to expand this later, make it more "songish"

not bad! try to make your drops a little more varied/rhythmically interesting! still a cool start tho =D

JaThu responds:

Yeah it gets a bit repetitive, I'll make a new version once I'm done with ngadm... (mmh... I should have added Reverb to the master)

dam son

JaThu responds:

yea boi

I really enjoyed the rhythm.

JaThu responds:
