    Hi there,

    So i've been working on this lately, i'm still a beginner at production but I thought I might post this cause i'm on the point where i cant get inspiration to add new things to the tracks and i need some fresh ears and advices / feedback.



    thanks you for your time, i really appreciate it !

    cheers

    Sounds good to me. A little boring. Needs more variation. Not a bad song.

    hey there,
    nice tune m8.
    from 1.54 to 2.54 its pretty much the same riff tho.
    maybe chuck a break down/build up in that region to add a bit more interest.
    peace

    yep thats what i've been struggling on the past few days...

    Everything i'm trying seems to sound cheesy or just not going with the vibe, i'm really runnin out of ideas... Will take a 1-2 days break before trying over and over again.

    thanks for the feedback guys

    break down ideas - keep one of the elements running into the break down (bass/pad) and drop everything else - then you can build up into a new section how you like.
    by leaving one element runnign into it the flow is still there.
    or drop everything but the hats - see where it takes you

    yep after hours of trying to make an other "drop" i just cutted the mid bassline, let the sub going to get the groove, and add some new pads to the break.
    Here where I'm so far
