    Howdi ho ho,


    Well I finished another one a few days ago and I would love to get your opinion. I tried my hand at a 140bpm dnb feel :rofl:
    I think the mix could be a whole lot better. Specifically with the drums being a taddd too loud.



    Let me know what you think!! I really had fun creating more of a relaxed vibe to a song I most likely would have tried to make a thumper with.

    Come on down man! It's great here :) I'm stuck in Auckland but the south island is where it is at!
    Yea, The environment definitely adds to what kind of vibe I produce at the time. In this case, It was a chilled out Saturday when I did the majority of the production.


    I'm a big fan of mogwai! I'll be sure to take a look at telepop and thievery :)


    Cheers mate.


    Thanks Tewky! :)

    Why do they call you guys Kiwi's anyway?
    The track is beautiful and chill. I am drinking a beer to it right now and I love it! Just something about this track gets me in a good way.

    Seems like you want to change something.

    I went and had another listen, and if being over critical, in the 1st drop, I reckon you could throw in some sort of alternative elements for the 2nd half of it. Then for the 2nd Drop a bit more variation of some sort, maybe a slight melody line that just gives it a bit more variation.

    But that is just trying to give you some thoughts, as it seems you are looking to do something with it :)

    haha well ya know.. I always try to find things that don't work and need to be improved.

    Right right... I like that idea, That is what I was thinking aye. I think some variations and a bit more fancy flare might do well :)


    Thanks man. Maybe I might just leave it..

    Nice lounge feel to it ^^. You could eq some stuff better by cutting frequencies. Some of the stuff sounds kind of unprocessed.
