    Hey guys,

    Here's a new dnb tune I just finished. Been making so much 100 BPM shit for the last year that it was a real pleasure to get back to the realness.



    Let me know what you think, n if you wanna know anything about how I made parts of it, feel free to ask :)

    Safety.
    Luke

    Huge tune mate, great job. The bass works with the melody really well, and youve done a super job arranging it to get that big sound, with the fx and such. If anything the hats could be made a bit louder cause they sit a bit too far behind. Noticed youve been going crazy with Schaack, those drums could not possible be punchier.

    Great work Luke, would love to hear more from you up this this standard.
    P.S Wrong sub-forum

    Sick tune mate. Love it.

    If you don't mind me asking, at 5 seconds in there is a drum roll, what type of drum is it and how is it arranged?

    I get the kick snare, kick snare (kick on 1st and 6th 8th notes, snare on 3rd and 7th) but I love that little drum roll, its about 5 hits I think is it just a different type of kick or a tom or what?

    Anyhoo thanks for sharing.

    EDIT: Actually the drum pattern isn't what I first thought you've got the first kick/snare on the 1st/3rd - 6th/7th (I think) but then they repeat for 3 bars right?

    So it's Kick*Snare**Kick/Snare Kick/Snare Kick/Snare

    Don't know if that makes any sense at all, i'm brand new to all this and never anticipated how difficult it would be to try and express musical concepts with words. I feel like i'm trying to describe the colour red to a blind man :confused:

    Hopefully you can make some sense of my crazy rambling.
