https://soundcloud.com/symmetry-recordings%2F06-break-kyo-simpler-times I think you missed my point about the drums. You do have multiple drum patterns but they are not as well placed as you may think. Sometimes less is more. A concept I struggle with. Here is an example of song that should showcase what I meant about your drums and arrangement. This example is an extreme of great drum work but I believe it should demonstrate what you could do with your drums in this track. I don't think you need to go to as far as this artist did, but a little bit of incorporation of these ideas could go along way in your track and help with the transitions.thanks IV4, appreciate your comments !!
I will look into the transitions in this track. as I said above, I tried different built ups & break downs to avoid sounding the same as millions of dnb tracks.
one point of yours I disagree: drum patterns. in this song, drums actually change every 1-2 pattern and are never the same. there at at 16 different drum pattern sets in this song, I think by far more than in most dnb songs in this genre (melodic dnb).
adding some evolving sounds might be a good idea .. do you think the song wouldn't get too loaded then (it has already much song content).
