    So this is done now!
    Took me a few days to finish it. (Not sure if anyone noticed the previous threads, deleted them rather quickly.. )
    Has a weird obscure break, hopefully it's liked!

    Critique appreciated as always : ).

    Cheers!

    I kinda agree disagree at the same time, I wanted to try and create a feel of variation through that, I think after a while that more obscure halftime-ish break at the start might be a bit too weird to listen to for a long time.

    Fuck man, i would pay straight out for that tune, thats sick. The whole 'vibe change' that happens around 1:55 seems a bit weird. Maybe its the new chords that it bring or just the style of synths, but it doesnt seem to fit straight off.
    BTW that that half-time break it juicey as.

    Second that; this tune takes my money.

    I really like the intro; don't hear many people doing intros like that anymore in neurofunk. I tried figuring out the break but no dice*.

    The 2nd drop around 3:00 is my favorite part. Atmospheric elevation.

    *Spent about 15 minutes trying to figure it out, then gave up out of frustration.

    This is wicked man, love the originality. Personally for the arrangement is a bit too 'out there' if you know what i mean, all the parts are really cool but it just seems too crazy for me :(

    Do a VIP in a more conventional arrangement lol :)

    Haha I love unconventional neurofunk, its the best :D.
    Made it a free download btw, if anyone wants to grab it : ), its a 16bit wav.

    Thanks for the response!

    If you'd like I can record a youtube video that goes over the composition and such, don't really have time for the next few days though for it!

    I just realised I accidently used the wrong bass sample after that part, around 1:55 :p, it sounds fine in the second drop.

    Oh well : ).

    ^ That'd be awesome! Still got some bassgorilla vids to d/l over the week, too.

    Btw I got the recorder by now but it's an entry-level one for getting used to how it should be used; using it to just record ideas and realize my voice is...kinda nerdy. At least on that thing, will have to try the .WAV file type. Dunno if I have a "rapping voice" but I'll still try and cook something up for that one track you did a while back, maybe collab w/ my buddy on it (he writes too). It'll probably be a while but it should be fun to see how to make it work.

    Now I need to start busting my ass and put some stuff on SC, lol.
