    Need advice on DNB

    Feedback on the overall quality of track; how to improve them, advice on different ways to structure/make songs


    Doesnt have to be both of these, just choose one, I just really want some Advice/Feedback.

    These two are mostly piano driven, with some bass lines and subs over piano.

    Second track is Mellow at beginning then quickly transitions to a dirty wobbly fast mid. then transitions back to mellow.

    Whoa! Your piano's in both tunes sound well random, like there's no rythym or timing. They certainly dont go with the beats at all. Bass on the 1st track also seemed a little poor, and again no real rythym. The bass on the second track was much better, although the wobble didnt sound like it was in sync with the tempo. Also it was a little overpowering and drowning out your other elements of the track.

    I'd suggest losing the piano altogether on your next track, tame your basses a little, maybe some light compression. Figure out where everything in your track should sit in the mix and your halfway there. Keep at it

    yeah man alot of work needed here, the beats sound a little mish mashed and the structure is all over the place, have a listen to how most dnb behaves in terms of tension building, drop, breakdown etc, the piano does sound wierd next to the beats.. i agree i'd lose the piano in your next tune or dont use it as the main lead at least..
    its a learning curve mate so dont be disheartened
