I've always respected Tune Threads, you know that.

I scanned through it and only heard House... wonder if I missed something special in there. :(

*edit* - Ok, at 30 minutes, that is a funky jam right there, I like that one. The constant snare triplet work is slick and the vocals are beyond jiving... can't go wrong with the constant porn guitar wah lick as well. :pimp: @ 32ish, wow that Lead is funky as can be. I listened to the Mix-Out of that one, nice... going into that big SD with the hat layer on it, worked well. So pardon moi, 99% House, 1 Breakbeat tune. :tongue:

Hey Chris I like the bass parts and the movement in the sounds. Think that's all pretty cool, interesting even. The drums sound weak though, a bit flat and could be much more dynamic and interesting. They just sound a bit, I dunno, generic electronic, without any layering or creative sampling. Find 3 different snares and layer them into one. Do the same with the kick. Or find a kick and snare that already have a lot of impact. Or find a loop thats killer and chop it up. Without that kind of approach to the groove it just sounds super dated. Also I get its a sketch but it sounds like one. Could be an actual song but it needs a fair bit more work to be one.

I find it interesting you think the drums are weak considering I find them so meaty. :p I'm not sure if I layered that KD, but I know I spent a good hour constructing that SD with multiple layers, and I've literally thought about EQing some of the low and mid out of the SD because I thought it sounded a little too big.

No doubt. I think I started this back in '06 or '07, I do remember it had over 100 MBs of sounds and what not, it'll be a killer tune one of these days when I take the time to finish it. Funny, Questicles liked it too.


Thanks for the feedback, Alex.

yes nice tune that. found it in amongst DnB would you believe (the guy usually makes DnB). Breaks the mix up nicely (which swings between nu disco and deep / tech) Gave up on breaks about 8 years ago. It went all clinical and shite. Even general midi's tracks went all harsh and nasty sounding.

Do what? :cow: How can one give up on Breakbeat? That defies all logic. Seriously though, you just don't like aggressive tunes or was there more to it than that?
