Gorgeous. I can tell it's got distinct influences from both you and nubbin. All I can say is I wish it were longer, this is beautiful!
Professional. Glitchy, ambient, overall just a great listen.
And for the dubstep part in the middle, it was pretty sweet. It was really atmospheric. Not bad at all :D
Not a bad outro.
It could've been better, but it wasn't bad. I really liked the intro. I dug the saw chords before the drop. But then it dropped. That first bass, the REALLY big one that really wasn't modulated, that was incredibly overbearing. I didn't care for the drop too much due to that. The trancey breaks were nice. The bass during the trancey breaks was nice. The main problem to me was just that overall the bass throughout the song was a bit too loud in comparison to everything else. If that were fixed up, and that REALLY big un-modulated bass that completely overtook the beginning of the drops were to be modified, this would be a top-notch track.
For a final track on the album, this really could be that epic finale, a big bang to go out with. It has potential to be amazing, but that bass was just a bit TOO big and bangy.
Thanks for the heads up, I'll work on making the filter more powerful, tightening up limiting etc. Expect major improvements on the feb version :)
Interesting intro. Unique for a dubstep song. While the song wasn't bad, what I must bring up is that the bass in this track was far too loud. Most of the song was hidden by the bass, and there were other points where it just hurt (0:56. 1:04 for example).
I don't think the the incredibly bitcrushed bass was the best for this song. I think something less abrasive would've really made it more listenable.
Well, I guess the kinda heavy bass I was going for in this track mayyyy not be for everyone. Will see if I can melodify it a bit, add some of my more neurofunky VSTs. Much thanks for creative crit :D
Caught me off guard.
I was expecting more dubstep here. 3rd track came around and slapped me in the face with some good ol' house. Can't go wrong with that. Plus, it still stayed in the style of the last two tracks. Nice interlude halfway through the album.
I liked it overall. It was a nice, relaxing, chance to breathe amongst all the crazy filthiness. It was kinda repetitive though. I know, house overall tends to be, but it just seemed TOO predictable. Along with that, some of the bass was really overbearing compared to the rest of the song. My subwoofer seemed pretty mellow on it's output, but then random stabs of bass almost scared me at times. They were brief, but they were strong. 2:00, 2:49, and a few other places.
I wasn't blown away by the song, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't like it.
Thanks for the feedback! I'll work on the repetitiveness, maybe a few glitches. The bass stabs seem to be connected to the square bass glide, I'll add a tighter limiter :) very useful feedback, much appreciated :)
Mind-numbingly brutal. :D
This track thrilled me quite a bit. Not the best intro, in my opinion. It seemed a bit out of place after hearing the rest of the song. The bongos, the squeals, just.. eh. Didn't strike me as great, kinda put my hopes for the track low.
Clean vocals come in at 0:45 with just the squeals - I see what you did there. I see where the intro came from, as obscure as it was. Good build up. My only concern there was the vocals were a tad quiet to me. Screams start, get all chopped up, great buildup for the boss drop you built.
Bitcrushed filth, high pitched stabs, great drop. "BE THE END OF YOU" being screamed throughout really made it for me. Nice. Brutal vocals for a brutal drop. I dig.
2:11, the guitars come in with a two step beat and the stabs continue. Nice transition/buildup. 2:24, a metalcore style breakdown with dubstep basses. So pro. I personally love the fusion of those genres. I found myself bobbing along to the beat. I could totally see a mosh pit opening up in a club right around here. Brutality and filth are a NICE combination.
5/5 right here. Some of the best dubstep on the NGAP right here.
Just wanna say: XD
Good start to an album in my opinion. This lays down the filth with a nice mixture of melody thrown in too. It's not just filth, it's not just melody. I loved the sounds used. Couldn't have been much better there.
The only thing I think you could do to make this any better would be to expand on the bass. While it sounded fantastic, it could've used a little bit more change. A few more bass patterns and maybe one or two different bass sounds used would've really spiced it up and kept me on my feet the whole time wondering what was going to happen next. The same brutally bitcrushed basses again and again wore away at me a tad. I'd suggest trying to implement some not-so-bitcrushed bass in there for diversity amongst the filth.
Don't get me wrong though - the positive far outweigheed the negatives of the track. I enjoyed this very much. Keep up the good work!
Very much appreciated review, think I may do a slice and dicing for a bonus track on the feb version :)
ALSO as a BTW there are only two bitcrushed basses in the track, the Yeh Yeh and its variant that I threw into spice things up. The others are granulated.
I'd say it's a nifty loop. Dunno quite what you were going for, but a tiny bit of harmonization and tuning up and you could have a pretty decent techno lead here.
Thx numi for being so nice and kind....its what keeps me going..:)
Better than the first...
I'm not sure how I can describe this one. What you definitely need to work on a LOT here is flow. It sounds like you only have about five or so different things happening. That crazy lead riff thing that goes throughout the whole song, a chord looping in 8th beats or so on occasion when the lead plays, one drum pattern, the electric guitar, and the abstract noise at the end. It sounds like it has potential still - but the thing is there's no structure that I can tell. You said you worked on flow, but I really have no idea what's going on in this song. I'm going to message you my e-mail, I'd like a copy of the .flp if you don't mind just so I can try to see what it is that's happening, and maybe see if I can try to make this flow a bit better.
Thx Numi :)
I'm diggin' it. Not quite what I expected, iffy at first, but going by reviews it was worth listening and I'm glad I did. I can't find any problems. Just a catchy, well built song.
