Perc is nice for the Intro for sure... but at 1:02 I was truly expecting a new SD... something with some big smack in the Mid Range. Your current SD is really high pitched and I wish there was a meaty midrange layered on top for more middle smack. 2:09 is a perfect spot to introduce a Bell riff, or a Lead of some kind... something to compliment the 'raceyness' of your Hi Hat work (something frantic and constant). *edit* - I realize you've already got a pretty Bell and Piano thing going (and it's wonderful)... it's just that I want more Melody, lol... : ))) maybe I'm being greedy, hehe.
Overall, it's sounding Lush: I enjoyed the listen. Feels like it could have been fleshed out a lil more.. but if this is 4+ mins tops, then the Minimal approach works imo. My main complaint is with the SD, wish it had another layer.
Again you've created a really nice, laid back vibe that just makes me want to kick back and relax. Everything sits well and sounds clean. The only critique I could say is that you are kinda predictable.....I know what style I'm gonna hear before I even open up your thread (Which isnt really a bad thing) But it's one of those styles I really have to be in the mood for to listen to. I'd like to hear you go out of your comfort zone and try something a little "Darker".....
......Fuck me....reading that back Ive just realised I sound like a judge on fuckin X-Factor!!!
Hehe well for me i gotta be in the mood to listen to something darker u know;P i really like non dark music 70-80% of the time.
so ye i make tunes to kick back and relax while smokin some nie herb
