ATN - Barefooter 15-12-2005 12:54 Forum: Tunes

Please check out my new track 'Barefooter' and post your comments here!!!

This track i'm experimenting with timing (especially when it comes to looping) and making a "heavy" dnb track. This definately isn't done, but i'm a little stuck, and could use some suggestions.

This was made with live 5.0, i'm about 10 hours into this track.

I just made one because the hopes of me getting paid for my work after all the samples are cleared are next to nil. So I might as well make it available for listening and downloading where the kids are. I'd love to have my own website for all of my music, but can't afford to host it.

It was a girl who got me into dnb origionally, and I'm forever in her debt. I used to know tons of girls who listened to dnb nonstop when i lived in Philadelphia, but when I moved to the midwest i kinda stopped going to parties.
On a side note, I realized the other day that the song she played me ie the first dnb/jungle song i ever heard was Omni Trio's "living for the future" not renegade snares as i said in the "what got you into dnb thread". That song is incredible.

I <3 junglist girls.

are the yeah yeah's not quite in the same key with the bass? it seems a little weird, mabye its just not what i was expecting... Atmosphere is nice, I like those pad sounds a lot.
The drums are not consistent with the fills as far as volume goes before the drop.
I love the snare sound btw, nice and slappy.
This track grooves, I can definately hear this being spun out, Its not too busy of a mix, so accapellas would sit super comfy on top.
I love a good jungly conga, nicely done.
Theres some really subtle stuff going on in the background in this tune. I think that's what i'm digging the most, is that you're not beating us over the head going "look at how cool this trick is" but more of a comfortable assurance that your shit is solid.
Nice track man. I'm into it.

Wow thats a long intro, thankfully you finally gave us some heavier drums, although they're still a little lacking in the punch dept for me.
This track is super ambient, Definately different.
OHH speaking of different... around 450 you completely switch songs on me. I'm feeling this new part even less than the previous ones.
Oh and now we switch again. I like this section most of anything in the song.

This feels a lot less like a composition as it does like several songs being cut together.
Sorry man, I'm just not feeling this.

Intro is really solid. Nice panned percussive elements. Build up is nice.
Main rhythm defintately works for me.
The little beat pull out sections add a lot for me, that stuff always keeps your ears perkin up, and is nice for DJ's to have room to drop samples or cut or whatever.
My only complaint is that this is a very upbeat tune programming wise, like those little pull outs and the drum fills, but the overall vibe is darker. You're riding the fence a little. But again this is definately a personal preference thing for me.
Solid track though, I missed it first time around, so i'm glad i could catch it now.

I love the intro atmosphere. It takes its time and lets things develop, which is nice.
The stabs after the drums are waaaaay tooo loud.
I could definately use the drums to be up more in the mix, they feel relatively powerless to me.
Some of the snares just dont feel like they should be there, maybe check the patterns for slightly off hits.
I like how glitchy and dark this is, like the drum programming isnt what i'm normally into. I would definately chop the drums more, maybe really tight gates with quick attacks and releases or somethin on them to make em wierder. If you're gonna go weird, Go wierd ya know?
This song is completely atmosphere based, theres not much in the way of melody, So its important that everything really fit together.
I'm diggin the vocal sample. I'd maybe try and use it earlier in the song. Your breakdown doesn't really seem to make sense since we've never heard those jazzy drums before in the song. So maybe introduce them earlier, so then when they come back, its a welcome thing, not so jarring or unexpected. I dig the tweaking you've done on those jazz drums though.
Overall, I think this has a lot of potential, you could just use to focus on overall eqing, mixing and arranging.
Keep at it!

Sade - Sweetest Taboo Rmx 02-12-2005 16:06 Forum: Track IDs

I just heard the actual track of Sweetest Taboo on the radio the other day, and remembered having a jungle rmx of this on a mix cassette a friend made me, somewhere around 1996. Anyone know who did this remix, and/or where i might find a copy?

As has been said, punch those drums at the intro...
I like the overall atmosphere of this...
The mc shit is good, but you need to cut yourself an eq hole for the vox to sit in, otherwise it sounds too muddled. Try working a hole around 5k and around 10k, and then boost there on your vox track. Compression on the vox will help lots too.
This track feels super nice.
The drums are a little weak overall, liking the little farty bass guys.
This track def has potential. Turn it out!

his science is too tight 26-11-2005 21:23 Forum: Tunes

Right Off I dislike the main synth (stabs), but I'm totally feeling the bass line. That bass has a non repetative feeling, likewise with your drums, there's enough tweaking going on to keep me interested. This is a suprisingly happy track.
I like the intro, maybe the pads are a little high in the mix, I'd pull those down or verb em back a little. This song def has a hip hop feel, which i like, even if it is a little too west coast for me. This is definately driving music, whether real life or a video game.
Overall I'm into it, Nice job.

oh yeah, mad props for having the guts to mention Cannibal Corpse on a dnb website. haha.

This is a little too wierd for me to really get into.
I definately get a video game vibe here... maybe the newest mario kart could use this....
I do like the bass line and drums, although I could use a little more variety in the drums.
I'd bring the drums up more in the mix, they're kind of a little more hidden than i like.
Nice breakdown,
This is a really experimental tune, I give you props for that, I'm definately a fan of pushing the envelope a little bit, and you do that here. You're not pushing in a direction I particuarly care for, but that doesn't mean its a bad one.

intellectual property 18-11-2005 16:10 Forum: Production questions & answers

Intellectual property is a really complex issue and is intentionally filled with gray areas. All copyright/trademark/patent type legislation is reactionary, mainly due to constantly changing technology. So the rules are very inconsistent and filled with double talk. So the key to the matter is, if you're gonna sample, be smart about it. Change, distort, reverse whatever to make it different or less obvious. Besides, we're not puff daddy anyway, so who wants to copy a whole song?
Some one mentioned having someone else sing it, or playing the parts yourselves. This is obviously the best route, although technically you have to get publishing rights, but not artist rights, if you want to put it out on a label. On the plus side, publishing rights are cheap, like sometimes only .30 cents a tune, depending on who it is. I was doing tribute records for a while (hey, its money), and we did everything from eminem to metallica and it was all legit, cause we paid our half a buck per song or whatever.
Bottom line, if you're not signed, or not getting paid, most artists/labels aren't gonna care. Unless they're Metallica sized pricks that is, so don't sample from Metallica. haha
I went to a panel discussion on IP last night. HOT SHIT!

wow, so many kind words, and helpful ones at that. thank you!
I made this on Live 5.0 and Reason.
Tempo is set at 84 so it feels at 168.
I definately come from a hip hop background when it comes to composing electronic music. Its funny Force mentioned DJ shadow, cause I'm currently working on a Shadow meets chemical bros type project called Long Distance Runner with a friend. (ldr myspace will be up soon)
Again thanks to tthose who have commented, I look forward to more suggestions and comments from everyone else!
