Reviews for "-ganon95- The Liquid Fact"

Ohohoho, man.

I wasn't expecting this. This is a very good sounding song. The kick could use a bit more volume, but maybe that's me. The way you worked the bells and other percussion created a very subdued, underwater feeling.

You nailed it with this song.

ganon95 responds:

thank ya =]

the kick is plenty powerful, try listening on an ipod and you will see what i mean

Hmm.

Hello there. It's been quite some time, eh? Let's get down to business, shall we?

Now... when it first started off, I was definitely expecting a drum n bass track to step out, full-fledged, raring to go. But.. I was sadly disappointed.

That kick is quite nice. Has a nice little sub fill to it, and can be heard quite nicely throughout. But when the kick and the smooth bass come in together, the kick loses some of its punch that it had in the beginning. I recommend some slight side chaining or a bit of better mixing between the bass and the kick so that it doesn't lose it's release, ergo it's "oomph". (It may be just me, but that's what I'm hearing. You don't have to take it to heart.)

The hats are pretty cool, and follow along very smoothly. That snare clap could definitely use some filling out (i.e. can be much harder-sounding when the sample hits).

The bells sound great. Very nice on the high ends, although a little bit too much, so you could tone it down just a tiny bit.

The sound effects sound nice in the background and when brought to the foreground, it fills out the track better than I expected. Crashes and reverses sound like they're put right in their place in the mix.

That flute sound in the background is great, and adds even more of a mystical presence to the song. Definitely sounds like a Liquid Factory there.

Whilst this is placed in Drum N Bass, this is not necessarily drum n bass, my friend. It does have that sort of feel, don't get me wrong, but I think it sounds a bit more like dub / breakbeat. Either way, doesn't matter much. I'm just being picky lol.

It could do with a bit more in the mixdown, but it's sounding nice. Things don't seem to be clashing too much, and most of sounds are quite audible. A great job. Loving the ambience, my man.

(I'd give ya an 8.5 if I could, but I'll just leave it at an 8. 100/10 for originality, for sure =])

ganon95 responds:

thanks for the nice review! yesh it has been some time =P

i don't really notice too big of a difference in the kick when the bass comes it, its still pretty powerful. but yea it does lose a bit of oomph.

soz to dissapoint about the DNB beat lol, i felt the bottle bell gave it an underwater feel.

that flute sound is actually not even a flute its a....um...idk what it is...i made the instrament out of another instrament. glad you liked it tho =]

like i said to the other people im not exactly sure what genre this should be, its got several different genres, but i think it fits in DNB.

anyway thnx for the review!

not bad

Not bad track. The beginning was promissing but however I see that your music influences probbly are not dnb artists. I expect more growling/evolving/whatever synths. Anyway, good track overall. Good luck

ganon95 responds:

most of my music is not inspired by other DNB artists, because i don't want to make something that sounds generic, i want something unique

Aint bad

It seems a little too basic. Maybe a little more detail couldn't hurt. But the songs got good structure. I really don't know what else I can say about it lol

ganon95 responds:

well, it is a bit basic, but you'd be surprised how many subtle sounds there really are

i tried adding as much as i could, super-detailed layering isn't my strong point in music production =P

Nice work!

I do kinda agree with the person below. Isn't quite drum -n- bass, but does have the sense of it. Great beat and sounds. I'm a big fan of bell-ish noises so it's a plus for me. VERY aquatic to say the least. Also, I do agree with the part being around 2:35 is an awesome part of the song. Adding this to favorites and gonna check out some of your other songs sometime! :)

ganon95 responds:

yeh like i said on the review below im on the edge about the genre, it has drum n bass yea but it also has other genres, but i classify it as DNB because it STARTS with DNB and definatly has a DNB feel to it...too bad you can't mix genres on the AP =/

you like bells eh? you would really like the original version because it was practically all bells, then i decided to 8-bit it up!

i use bells a bit much in my music lol
