    Hey guys. I'm really new to D&B and even newer to producing it. I used to produce mostly hip-hop, rap, and r&b but have since transitioned to EDM. This is my first track/remix I've made that I truly felt had a liquid drum and bass feel to it. Original song is by Neverdance.

    About the song:

    I still have problems with creating thicker harmonic pads so if anyone can help me on that it would be much appreciated. Also, I'm aware that the melody might sound kinda cheesy to some...I tried to mess around but couldn't get an idea off the top of my head. I'll probably re-do it later on after I let my ears rest a bit. My build-ups don't hit quite hard and drowns out the actual dnb part. Not sure how to fix it so it sounds less crowded but still strong.

    Please let me know of any other technical problems you hear in the song. Thanks in advance!

    what learned to do to get thicker pads or just thicker anything was to just double up . I use ableton and when my sound lacks I make to channels or lines of the same sound im trying to make thicker. It works for me usually.

    Your synth needs to be a little fuller, try to boost the midrange a little and maybe the low-end too, will make it sound much fatter, or maybe copy it and layer it but put alot of reeverb on the second one and boos the low end, good start mate!

    Thanks to both of your comments.

    @modz: Yeah that's what I did. In fact, I have a total of three synth pads. I think the problem rose from the fact I cut the mid-range frequencies of all three pads too much which made it lose it's thickness. Do you think this is why?

    @LVB: Which synth in particular? Sorry for not understanding your suggestion.

    Keep them coming guys. I really want to get better at DnB.

    You should work more on the beat. Try messing around with the hihats velocity more, it gives a more realistic feel of drums than just a machine. I suggest going with less instruments before the drop so the drop would sound better but that's just my style. But overall the vocals and the synths go together very nicely, great job bro!
