Points for being unique, and I liked the clash of piano against harder instruments. I thought it was a touch repetitive in the first minute or so, but every song I make is repetitive, so I can't go berating you, now, can I?
Can't stress enough - love the contrasting instruments throughout the song. Definitely a plus. As the previous review said, I'm not sure if it's really "drum and bass", but I can hear the breakbeat. One bit I'd say is to be a bit more creative with those drums! It's a lot of fun to play with breakbeat patterns! I have more trouble with synth creativity with any sort of DnB, so I don't really touch it, but the percussion is my only forte.... Even if it's more mezzo forte than anything.
I'm getting sidetracked. I love the song, but I'd play more with the percussion for sure. Great work!
The way I see creating melodies for dnb is to not be intimidated or bothered by the drums. Just make whatever you think sounds nice on it's own w/o the drums and then add the drums, usually if the melody is good the drums will help.
I put it in the dnb category because there is not a more specific sub category of dnb like drumstep/breakbeat.
Just like b4 ng got many audio portal updated people would put dubstep in the dnb category becasue there wasn't a dubstep selection XD
You really need to enter into something. You've got a lot of talent! You're just not being noticed by anybody. I love your creative melodies with your hardstyle, though I usually find the kicks to be slightly lacking, but... Well, it's rare for me to really like the kick in any newer hardstyle songs. Can't really beat you up for that. Excellent work, as always, and I hope to see you in a contest in the future!
Thanks a lot MisterJayElectro, always nice to hear from you! =)
Excellent work, man. I love the bass coupled with the piano. It makes it dark and beautiful at the same time. To me, it sounds similar to some of the work done by the professionals, although it's not perfect (but it's very difficult to be 'perfect', of course).
Looking forward to more music like this!
Really like the bass used. It's a little short and simple for me, but I figure it's not bad, especially for an older song. Nice work!
I like it, but I do wish the lead was a little more interesting. I know it's meant to be simple, but I'm sure this could really go far if you let it grow. But again, simplicity. Very good song though, just like most of yours!
Oh thanks a lot for the compliments.
I really focused not only on simplicity of the lead, but simplicity in effects, with the wobbles and glitchy parts. The melody was the main element though in this one. I wanted to to see if i could make a catchy melody with such a simple sound. I really enjoyed the flexibility and the thought of how far I could push it, but I decided to lay low and make something small.
Thanks a lot for your review and if i make another track similar to this one, I'll make sure to push the complexity further =]
This is a good trance song, I really like it. It's a touch too slow for me, but then again, I enjoy hard acid, happy hardcore, hardstyle, the 150-160BPM stuff... I'm not into slower music, so I can't really complain.
You've got a strong melody throughout the song and some excellent percussion. As a percussionist, I really love when the percussion gets attention in a song, and you've got that. Very pretty song, but just a tad slow for me.
9/10, but 5/5. It just seemed a little unfocused, the melody was the only thing holding it together. Maybe that's just me. Keep it up, though, you've got more potential than me!
Well, hey thanks man! Any criticism is criticism so I'll take it positively! Yeah, I really need to work on my percussion more, I know my melody's aren't too bad because I've been practicing them A LOT.
It's not just you, I've showed this track to others and they said the timing was off a bit, so you're actually right. I guess practice makes perfect.
P.S. Because I listen to modern trance, I'm used to the 125-135 BPM and and anything above is just too fast and becomes techno for me, so I see where you're coming from about it being too slow.
I'm not too sure on this one. Your other loop was really good as a standalone, but could have been put into something bigger, while this one can't stand on its own. I like it, but I really want to hear the rest of the song too!
I like it, that's for sure. It makes for a great loop, and it could be used in a game easily. I'm not big on dubstep, but this graces darker music gently and helps me tolerate it. Excellent, as usual!
Sounds a lot like older stuff
And I love it. You take electronic music to an entirely new level. My music is the commercial junk, while every single one of your songs is unique. Original. They can tell a story, or evoke an emotion. I just... Don't know what to say. This is yet another perfect song. I don't have a problem with it at all! I just wish I was this good.
I really, really missed your hardstyle. Though I loved Sessions One and Two, your hardstyle was also just amazing. This one also does not disappoint! I can't think of anything constructive, other than maybe adding some harmonies, but you're already got that on your list, so I guess I could say keep being awesome!
Structure at the start needs some adjusting too but it's definitely good to be back in this genre! :D
