Listened to a few, here's what I think.
Your drums are a bit too squashed i think. If you ease out on the compression, the single hits stand out much better and give your drum track a lot more groove when the transients slice through. First try to get on without any compressing or limiting, only use it as a last resort if some wild peaks need taming.
Melodies are good, definately your strong point, although I could spot some preset usage in there but that's no biggie, it only bothers other producers tbh. I especially liked the arpeggio in that Teardrops tune.
Your basses are really wide in the stereo field, you should check how the tune sounds when collapsed to mono. Try to use the bass as a rhythmic element too, hitting it on and off and playing with the relationship of the kick and the bass.
You got some really good ideas in regard to melodies and harmonies but in the technical side i think you still got some learning to do.
Thanks for the good constructive reply U seem to know what u are talking about, and yea ur right i need to work more on the technical side of things, ive always found that to be ait boring to honest but im trying to learn each day hehe. Ive spent most time on the more musical side of things with melodies and harmonies and such
sik tunes mate especially april trip
check my tunes out
proper nice melodies goin on in all the tunes mate, liking the sound a lot. think the beats could be a bit less hectic to create a more chilled vibe to match the musical elements but that depends on what ur going for. good shit overall tho
Thanks for the reply I like abit of hectic drums but i might do some more chilled drums for the one im workin on at the moment
