just messing with some chopping and breakbeats. threw in a synth or two for substance.


You can do better

I understand that this is a beta but what's the point of submitting a beta? Might as well wait to finished the completed version eh? Well here's my review.

Nice beat. Even though it was very complex and interesting, I found it rather boring after a while. If you had more than one layer of drums then it would liven things up a little. Try (VERY) different variations of the beats too. Like add a tiny breakbeat part of it's own at one time or another. That would sure wake up the listener.

Rather oring and basic. yet again, I understand that this is a beta and you "threw it in" for "substance" but I am reviewing your work regardless. You could've tried for a nice melody of some kind instead of a droning sounding one. Maybe a highpitched synth with a nice melody could've made this ten times better. If the melody changed as often as the beat did without straying to ofar away from it's original melody then again, more points for you.

Nice beats, crappy synths, mediocre piece of work. But I have offered you some tips and I hope you use them to improve upon yourself. Remember, it's not what you think sounds cool, it's what sells to the people best.

wow, first off, thank you very much for your long in-depth review. i agree with most of it and appreciate the constructive criticism a lot.

i really like this style of music, and this was just my first real try and some beats with some slapdash synths, both of which could've been improved as you said. i'll take your suggestions into account in making a final version. i hadn't planned on pursuing a finished product with this one, even though it was termed 'beta,' but your advice makes me want to see what i can do with it.

i do, however, disagree with your final, ending point. music should come from your soul, be what YOU like, and not be "all about the money." playing to the people, as you advise in your last sentence, often ends bands up as sell outs with no real heart to their music.

regardless, thanks again. look for improved music from me in the future. i plan on staying awhile.

damn that's good!

very nice complex beatz!! definitly rocks! keep it up dude! nice synths too! jah!:D

Ineptitude responds:

thanks a lot, man. i've been working on my beats quite a bit lately. the synths are nothing special, i just wanted to try my hand at that cool dieselboy sort of feel. :)
