    A new jam from us, experimenting with nonstop automation. Mastered at Subvert Central Mastering for extra boom.

    Cheers!

    me like!

    I was a little bit impatient (expected the beat to drop in earlier), but that's probably just me.
    Bass is really great and the continuously automated stuff fits it really well..

    Great tune, mate

    cheers

    Thanks for the feedback megagnome! We greatly appreciate it.

    I totally get your critique with regards to the beat dropping in earlier, and it's certainly a fair critique. Msmith222 and myself subconsciously tend to make our tracks "DJ friendly" in the sense that we want a lot of "space" in the beginning of the tune for mixing purposes. Of course, this tends to show our age a bit as this was the way of doing things during the vinyl days (R.I.P), and nowadays one could probably just loop a couple spots of the track to mix into it. But I digress.

    Thanks again for your feedback megagnome. Big Up!!

    I like the bass that fades in in the intro fella's......nice work....good automation on the lfo speeds too, keeps it from getting mundane! And those drums are pretty solid!

    Welcome to the neighborhood IV4, and thanks for the compliment on the tune.

    As msmith222, I'm not actively pursuing any gigs at the moment. It's not that I don't love the hell out of DJing, it's just that between producing, putting food on the table and raising a son, I don't have the necessary time to go out and whore myself all over the city to promoters for an opening slot for DJ Slapdick McGee. However, that's not to say I wouldn't accept any booking offers...but I digress. In the event I do get booked, I'll definitely let you know. Never say never. :)

    Cheers!

    Thanks a lot Mr Fletch! We greatly value your incite/feedback, so thanks a million for the compliment. We're definitely starting to love aggressive/random automation of synth parameters, it really does turn a mundane sound into something much more exciting & unpredictable. I give msmith222 the credit on that, he really killed the automation on the tune...and added some rather large balls to the drums as well.

    Cheers!

    Interesting tune, i like it.

    Is that the Brutal Electro patch in Massive that you've automated?

    Lol, yeah we're not to preset heavy nowadays...especially when the majority of said presets (especially in Massive) tend to blur together quite a bit...especially with Brutal Electro and it's affiliates (I believe I even stumbled across one in a sample pack with presets that the "artist" named Electro Brutal, LMFAO).

    We actually created that bass in Predator in an attempt to step out of the Massive box for a bit and to get to know Predator a bit better. Once you start driving those Oscillators hard, the filth just starts piling on (in a good way).

    And thanks for the feedback on the tune as well mr meh, we truly appreciate it!
