Reviews for "Requiem For a Dream (DnB MMix)"

quite good

strings sound terrible. but when beat comes in it is quite good

Mrmilkcarton responds:

One line too short.


This is an amazing remix. It sounds like something like Tiesto or Crystal Method would make. I like the beat in the remix, going from the original slow feel to a more urgent feel. Again, amazing remix.

Mrmilkcarton responds:

Tiesto makes DnB?

Yup, epic right here ppl

This is FKN SWEET!!! So, this is what you've been working on lately?
I like the intro, because the original didn't have one (at least my version doesn't anyway). It's kinda a spooky/eerie kinda remix, whileas the original was more majestic. The main string that you used is probably the part I didn't like most. It really isn't a violin-like sound, like the original. It needs to be smoother and softer. All I could think was that it sounded like wasp, instead of strings.
The build-up should be more meaningful (sorry for the poor choice of words, but that's all I could come up with).
Also, in the main pattern, between the second last and the last note, there shouldn't be a rest there.
Besides that, pretty good for a DnB, especially when you're only starting on the genre. Ever thought of doing more remixes of other songs? Like sandstorm or PoE(which apparently it's the "cool thing" to do).

Mrmilkcarton responds:

I'm limited on my strings and can only get so much out of them sadly. As for other remixes I don't think I'll be doing the ones you suggested antime soon.

Power much?

The pitch-rising thingymasynth combined with the drums and a strong mix have created a stunning combination of strings, an awesome song to begin with, and crazy-ass drums to create an even more awesome remix.

Now, on to the nitpicking. On the strings I think you should have emphasised the quarter note string hits a little more to give it more feeling. Also, while the remix is awesome, there is a whole lot more you could have done with the melody, including a rising/falling string arp, and probably a lot more synth variation. Yes, its DnB, but you really didn't put that much variation into the drumlines either - they sound cool, but they don't *change*

Also, for some reason, I feel like if you removed some of the stereo from the bass synth and centered it a bit more, it would feel a bit better and more like it was "under" you instead of around you, which is more appropriate for a bass synth (IMO). The ending could have been a little more climatic as well, once again with the rising string arp that you never did and it bugs me because it fits this song so well.

Listening to it again, I also feel like the melody could have been elaborated on and upgraded in speed so as to match the frantic drums. Its good to have a contrast in speed, but the strings are already providing that in the background, so going crazy with the synth probably would have yeilded a catchier result.

As a final note, that pitch-rising background synth-thing is just jaw-droppingly awesome sounding.


Mrmilkcarton responds:

Well I already went over the string issue with you over MSN but as far as the ARP I'm not so sure about that. I think I heard it in my head too but never found the notes.

As far as the stereo of the bass I think I actually widened it more. In Drum & Bass I prefer the bass to have power and a big presence in the song. It's called DnB for a reason no need to hide the bass.

I wanted to make make the melody a tad faster but I soon found the sliding on the synthe wouldn't allow for that. It would sound pretty dumb sliding any faster then it is.

Last but not least thank you.


Wow man i really love this one, great strings! =O
The beats are just... WOAW!!..


My review is freakin useless!

Mrmilkcarton responds:
