I've allowed downloads on this song. Please, for the love of sanity, don't distribute the file. Distribute the link. If you distribute the file to people, that gives way for source confusion and misuse. Also, if you'd credit me if you put it in anything like a game or a movie, that'd be well appreciated. Thank you!

Yesterday was MASSIVELY productive. I am extremely happy with this. If you haven't heard it, this song was inspired by some of Draft's songs; Mainly, Arara.

Part of the reason this was so different to other days was because I completely shifted my workflow. Instead of using patterns, I began dropping samples straight into the playlist. Somehow, not only did this give me much more leniency for samples, it made me much more productive and creative overall. Maybe it's that 'massive project' vibe - I did this after watching Draft's walkthrough of the source files of Arara.

I used new headphones on this. SPAN says the EQ's good, but my new headphones are bass-light and I'm still acclimating to that. If you have feedback for that (too bassy, too trebley, too anything) do tell. The more feedback, the better!

This is day 30! Hooray!

Tip: Adding a quiet, quick clap to a kick makes it surprisingly snappy.

Rate this, please! I wanna know how I did. Descriptions too; Even the smallest description alongside your rating goes a very long way.

If you find something wrong with the mix, do let me know. Feedback is welcome!

FL Studio (and many FL Studio native plugins and samples)


Rhythm Lab Vinyl Revolution Volume 1-3 (Drums)


Erkan's Drum Samples


MFreeFXBundle (MFreqShifter)


Voxengo SPAN (End-of-mix analysis)

I really like all the drum sounds. The transitions were smooth and it had the right amount or repetitiveness for me to listen to in the background while I got some work done. Keep it up!

Absolutely Awesome!

Lol dude this is a song, not a scientific protocol, u dont need to give all infos.
Btw i like this very much, the atmosphere is great and allthough it repeats itself, it doesnt get boring, how do you do that?
Btw by hearing the song i think the eq is good balanced, not too much bass and not too much treble
