    I'm working on two new Drum & Bass tracks, somehow a little bit neurofunk style.
    I tried something different with the basslines and I don't know if it sounds well.

    So here is the first one:
    ARTFX - Slip Away

    The next one is a remix from a very known DnB track, which is already remixed couple times.
    But I intend to make a different remix, since most of it's remixes are only different drums and tempo changes.

    Here it is:
    ARTFX - Hide U

    Both are made in FL Studio 9, bassline created with the Sylenth1 VSTi.
    Who likes it?

    i can see uno ur ins and outs of producing but im in all honesty the second bassline does not work.
    the first one sounds good i think, but the hide you does not fit at all.
    id say finish the first one, not sure on the second one :)

    Well that Hide U is far from finished. That Slip Away bassline had my priorities.

    only listened to the first one cause my inet is beeing really shit atm..

    first thing i have to say is that the intro is a bit empty at places and i dont really liked those fxed vocals, maybe just keep it simple with that and put some chords or pads in there.

    the drums seemed a bit low for my liking, could do with a bit more "sparkle", aswell as the hats.

    i would have loved to hear more of the actual drop aswell. apart from all that, solid work! finish it!

    Okay so I'm working on the track right now. I've layered the snare with a higher snare sound now. Sounds better imo.
    Also looking on some breaks to hipass and layer them over my drums. :D

    Yeah cant say i like the Hde U Rmx

    The first one isnt toooo bad, i can see whar u are going for with it

    Mixdown needs some work, ie drums cleaner and snappier, although they arent bad man

    Keep it up good work :)
