Here's Clown finished, and I'm pretty pleased with the drop, I added more drive and did a proper break, wut do ya fink of the mix n stuff before I get this mastered?




Honestly, I loved the first half of the song before the break. I was really excited about it. But I really didnt enjoy the break, I think it was too loud. And the second part its too much repeative, I would add another quicky break to change the energy a bit.

In terms of mixing, its properly mixed imo.

Now what do you guys thinks about this progression?

That's actually the sort of thing I need in my horror Clown track! It's very retro horror to me, and I like the way you slowly build it.

Thx for the feedback on mine, I will see what others say and make changes. My break is a bit incongruous!

I think it needs some more going on, for one. It's just four beats, new chord, four beats, new chord. There's no real interest there. And unfortunately the pluck moves from unpleasant-but-could-morph-to-something-interesting to kind of boring.

I hate giving feedback like this. The actual chord progression is nice enough, but I'd suggest some kind of ethereal pad behind it to harmonize and create more tension to be resolved.

use an m1 piano instead of the pad. They sound great in the low register. Use a bII substitution instead of your V You have a huge gap in parts. Make the pluck fill more space. Make the pluck less clean adding noise and ease up on the resonance so it doesn't sound so jp 8000 unicorn

its good to be back doing some music again

cool track! I think the first "thats not funny" is too dry maybe the whole track could do with more reverb imo

the fx at 1:00 like a reverse vocal fx is really cool how did you do that?

im Listening on my laptop and headphones, but the bass sounds banging, the fx are really cool and keep it interesting. Pretty warped!

I feel like the track could do with a nice big 909 ride on the off beat personally to help it chug along, or a bit more hi hats/percussion but that may just be me.


Heres my WIP. The mix is still rough and bear in mind its going to have vocals so I've deliberately left space etc



This is dope. I really like the deep housey donk wobbles haha. It's kind of a twist on a trend that's really popular right now and I dig that. It kind of reminds me of old Skream stuff but less dry. A little loungier.

Nice work!!

Also nice and deep housey! This is screaming for vocals though. I want to hear something like what's on Lost You by Zeds Dead. Really well done!

There's lots of cool stuff in this thread right now. I really dig this too. Reminds me of some Slam stuff. I think you're at your best when you're at your most dark. This is really good.

I finished 2 of the tracks I posted earlier.



This one has the 2nd drop and a lot of fit and finish done.



I've shortened this track by nearly 3 minutes, re-recorded every vocal, and did a bunch of work on the arrangement.

I'd really love to heard Feed The Fire with a second, longer breakdown with the opening vocal phrase repeated again--I like the "I'm the hunter / and you are mine" bit more than the "fight or flight" clip, but hell, this belongs in a whole bunch of top-level crates as-is.

Survive isn't so much my style, but I'm loving how you did the layered self-harmonizing vocals (though it sounds like you're straining at the end of "I survived the life"--how's your breath support there? It sounds like you're really pushing to hit that note). And I suspect I'd like Survive a lot more in an altered state, on big-ass speakers.

The "Fight or Flight" section is the chorus in the original mix which is why I did the arrangement the way I did. I also didn't want the track to be longer than a pop tune.

In Survive - part of the reason I think you might be perceiving strain is the lyric is actually "I survive, alive." So it might sound like it's missing consonants but that's just not actually the lyric haha.

Ahh. Makes sense on the vocal. I'm just picky :P

No it's not a missing vowel, it's the scoop up you do with "-ive" in the harmonized vocal.

Interesting, do you feel like it sounds that way before the drop too? I don't think it sounds notably strained and I can hit that note pretty easily but maybe it sounds that way? hm

this is really good as well, hate to be nitpicky but for me there is a bit too much reverb on the higher pitched arp around 1:30 to 1:45 and in the break, sounds like a room verb to my ears but it pushes that sound too far back in the mix for me!

everything else is spot on, nice chugging feel and melodies

At 2.40 in track one this really comes together, love that part.

Well done on your vocal work, I know how much effort this would have required.
