Brutal track man. Please tell me when you are releasing this, I so direly need this track :) I'll buy this. Great basswork, and lovely drums. I have no words for this track.
I'm Alex. lol.
Great track, sounds very pulsating and dark in the beginning, the atmospheric pads there are very good. Then the choirs start.. I like them, but not a lot. They're good, but in my opinion they could have been a bit fuller.. A very slight chorus or a bit of reverb on them might help. The transition from the choirs to the xylophone is nothing really special...
But what comes after that makes more than up for that, the choirs work really good here! Sounds a bit like a cyan monkey with the xylophone still in there, lol.
The bass you put in after that is delicious, really sets a dark mood. I like the ending, even if you're not really satisfied with it.
I really think you did a great job on this one, the only thing I might add is a bit more variation and breaks in the percussion department, but apart from that, you did a mighty fine job on projecting a cyan monkey into sound.
Keep it up, and check out my new track "Rip" if you have the time. Drop me a line.
Sweet review! Thanks Alex. (lol, hehe.)
I wanted some variation in the percussion on this one aswell, especially when the xylophone comes in I wanted a lighter kick but that turned out rather aweful and after a few weeks I thought I would finally submit it.
But cheers for the detailed review, helps a lot. :-D
My opinion is..
.. you should not "Envify" it, but continue it as it is now. Add some pads or strings, and this will really work out well.
Here's a short summary of what I think of the song:
(0.00-0.30) Good, but there's little low end on the kicks.. try processing them using a highpass filter on 'em.. Put the cutoff freq around 50 hz. Voila, they stand out much better. The percussion is a bit on the minimal side for electrohouse.. Try being a bit more original with it, add little bits and pieces here and there. And I don't like the highpassed snare/hatty things. Idk.
(0.30-1.00) The percussion becomes a bit better, but be aware, do not let it get cluttered. I love the sweep.
1.00 and on (I've got to learn for some tests):
-Strings = like
- little effects = ok.
- it is a bit too repetitive. xKore said to me once that should try and add something or progress the song every 8 bars. Try and do that.
All in all, I think that it is a good remix, but to be really honest, I don't really think that this song is good for an electro remix. I'm sure handsup people would dig a remix of this in your usual handsup style.. but I don't know. I'm just not really feeling it.
Alas, sorry if that was a bit harsh, but it is how I feel it. Keep going on it though, blow me away.. if you can ;)
And I'm pretty sure you can;)
Ur not harsh:D Ur honest.. Thanx for liking it, i will try to make it tha best:D
Thnx for ur tips and review! :D
Great track, but there are some things that I'd have done different.
First of all, the bass annoys me slightly, it's a great bass but I don't think it fits into the track. I myself would have not made it so aggressive, but a bit more laidback. It's like an electro bass in an ambient track.
Secondly, it's a bit repetitive, if you know what I mean. It is minimal music, but still.
It might not be my cup of tea, but still I think that a bit more variation would not have hurt the track.
I love the little paddy stabs though, and your percussion work is, apart from it being repetitive, bloody amazing. It really gives a woodwork, walk through the forest feel. I'd like to see some more tracks in this style from you.
Keep it up.
.. for the fucking win.
Haha so you're back?
I can recall listening to a lot of your songs a few years back, and then being disappointed when I saw you didn't submit anymore.. So. A new song! :3
Nothing too special, but it's quite ok:) You still got it! I'm looking forward to hearing more songs of you.
thx for the review, yeah i know its nothing special, just practicing to get everything in order again :P
I love this song XD
This made me laugh out way loud. I am fascinated with evil clowns, and I lol'd. So. Make more. I love you.
Great job! I'm still working on some melodies for our collab, but I don't have anything good yet;( I'm trying though. Do you have anything yet?
I'm glad you like it!
I don't have anything yet. I'm also working on it :)
Hey, your music is pretty good, I wish I was at your level hahaha.. TEACH ME SOME TRICKS PL0X?:D This song reminds me of Dimrain47's Infernoplex, for some reason (guitar probably). Good job on capturing the energetic feel, I expect to see this in a flash, because it is epic.
Btw, why do you dedicate almost all of your songs (2 of 3) to people?:) Ah well, it doesn't matter a lot though. Add me on msn if you want to, we can have a talk about music. My msn is on my profile page.
Keep it going!
I'll teach give you some tips gladly ^.~
And I dedicated those songs to them cause they inspire me and are a great influence on my musak :D Actually for this one, my inspiration was NemesisTheory and Dimrain47 ^^
Thanks for the review, I'll add you on msn soon ; )
