What the fuck!? only one download?
and by me?
I mean sure the song is only 5 days old, but my god, this song is better than this song.
I actually downloaded it a couple days ago, but wanted to save the reveiw until later when I would come back to listen to it. This has got to be my favourite DnB song ever, it is just so awesome, and has such neat little effects. I am trying analize this song as much as I can, because I want to be able to write DnB this good ("...its not gonna happen."). But since I have done such, I will try to write a lengthy reveiw about it, because those reveiws are oh so juicy.
the distortion/crunchy/bass - Very crunchy, I want some in my cereal every morning. Covers a perfect frequancy range, leaving enough room for the drums to keep their beat. Comes on and off throughout the song, which is great because it lets the drums have their solos, as to not make the song genre just 'bass'.
the ambient pad thingy - For the beginning, a nice mellow, but unique pad intro, which to me almost sounds like it is saying "happy birthday", but not to the normal song tune, I love it, it sounds great.
DRUMS - AWESOME, everything I could want them to be, diverse, fast, yet keeps a rythm at a speed you can bob your head at, if you wish.
kick - sure it lacks a bit of oomph, but that is made up for by the crunchy bass, and the sliding out bass that plays every bar in some parts. Also it has just enough high to keep it in there without all that bass, though at 0:20, when the kick kinda goes for a 3/4 time stroll, or something like that, it kinda kills the beat, but I guess it is ok because it comes back up again.
snare - it sounds like there are at least 2 different snares, but I may be wrong, one may be just playing with the kick to get a different feel. I really like how you cut off all of it's reverb to keep the song tidy, and to leave space for the next beat. I really like this snare, and wish I could mix a snare up as well as this, what did you make it from?
cymbols - It sounds like in some parts there is a constant hi-hat, but in other spots it is a ride cymbol keeping the beat, then again, it may be the smae instrument sounding different from the surrounding sounds.
other - it sounds as if you have the 'distant' simsynth effect from fruityloops? the storm sounding one? i may be wrong, but I can swear I hear it occasionally.
effects - well, mixing was obviously done really well, with the drum, and the bass, and all those little tidbits in the background, actuall, I am curious what the track sounds like with the drum and the bass silenced, just cause there is so many little things.
I reallylike how you made all the different little drum effect changes after 2:00.
especially at 2:20, where you made all the drum hits cut off very fast, and then made the pitch slide down, that is AMAZING, I love it! I actually sometimes rewind the song when it passes that part, just because I cant get enough, you truely are unique with music, it is great. Even if this is one of your more mainstream songs, it still has your specail flavour.
Alright, I hope I didnt miss anything... oh, I like you your drum patterns change, the addition of all the snare/hi-hat and stuff you do is great.
Um, good luck!
