    Hello everyone ! :) So, I had a bad day yesterday and it lead me to making an another track.

    It is a dark-ish DnB. I'm still beginner at the music scene, but I'm trying to improve everyday :p
    any feedback would be appreciated... Thanks! :D

    Hm, reminds me of the number 1 cliché of dance music ;)

    1. One note melody
    Obviously, anyone who makes dance music has an encyclopedic knowledge of music theory, and once you've acquired a thorough understanding of melody, you too will realise that intervals are in fact a waste of time: the only way to truly convey the hopelessness of the human condition is to play one note over and over again.

    This is massively over-repetative. There's actually only about 10s of music in here, if you take out all the repeats.
    Fill every four bars, use lots of different fills.
    Use more than one note per song.
    Bring things in and out every eight or sixteen bars.

    Thanks for the feedback :) I'll try to use more notes on my next tracks, I'm learning fast but the only problem I have is lack of ideas... :(
