Kik is not to my liking, juts out too much, not embedded and too wooden, but this could well be just my own taste talking. Get that right and you have a track.

Good sounds here and imaginative game scoring. Nice drum work. When you finish this try not to make it too repetitive, vary things up quite a bit for example with little 2 bar flutey phrases perhaps.

A techno track I've just about done with. Any thoughts afore I send it out?

Rich, the drums seem a bit louder than the rest of the track? as a result theres nothing really standing out driving the track along

Cheers, I've been influenced by drum based techno lately where not a lot else is going on. All about the drums and bass pounding along. Love or hate thing I reckon.

Everything sounds nice but the kick and the clap, imo. Clap sounds too artificial (might be my partiality towards a 909 clap) and not very suited to the atmosphere of the track, which is very nice. Very nice progression as well, and vocals complement the track well. Might use a kick and clap more suitable for dub techno, however, as the ambiance of the track suggests.

Cheers, would you believe that artificial sounding clap was made by yours truly by recording my own hands clapping! The whole reason I did a live recorded clap was because all the samples and synth made claps I tried sounded too artificial. I'm not entirely happy with it and your post has prompted me to explore the clap again.

Now this kick thang, grrrrrr, we all seem to struggle with this, I spent a lot of time making it, I wanted it too sound kinda dusty and small yet with a decent thud. What sort of kick did you have in mind for this? I notice a lot of recent techno employs this sort of dusty not too 'big' kick.

Glad you liked the general atmosphere, I always strive for atmosphere above all else.

i would drink to this


Cheers - that was my aim all round, personally I don't think I've ever made a better mix, I was after a rounded easy on the ear tonality.

Breaks I had a feeling needed to be more interesting, will look at them with a fresh mind.

Glad you enjoyed, tbh my mates don't like techno but I find it touches something tribal within me, I don't always need melody.

@ Rich - i quite like the kick, sounds kinda synthy - however i think its missing a bit of snap so i would blend in a little "snap" from another kick, not so much that it overpowers the original kick but just to bring the whole kick up front a little more

Interesting. Perhaps artificial wasn't the right word - it doesn't blend very well with the other sounds, I think. It's not bad, but perhaps there is something more suitable out there for the track as a whole.

Perhaps a fuller kick, something with more thud or boom. Either something more driving or more minimal, like a 606 kick, perhaps. Perhaps something you'd hear in dub techno or a progressive trance track. The kick you use is more housey, but the atmosphere is more progressive or techno-ish.

Atmosphere is great, I think perhaps percussion should make it more driving or minimal rather than funky, as the kick and clap seem to make it.

Yeah I agree. Go big on the kick OR make it even more housey-like with a little nice warmish tail (there seems certainly to be room for it). Not too familiar with the kicks with this style though, as you said these kind of kicks are used nowadays?

As robo said you could try to push the drive and bring some elements further in front. Like the bit-crushed carry is nice REALLY cool but it just doesn't do the trick for me. It could do with little fatter sound, but it gets kinda gets lost.

The clap does kinda work, and good perc work as expected from you! Really dig the groove. Expecting to hear more of this.
