How about this drums? To flat?
Not one of my favorite tracks from you.
Experimental and very progressive,yes. The outcome however seems to be an odd timing bass rhythm with a looped percussion string.
It would appear to me, your using a straight time percussion yet, your bass craves a groove.
*side note - I think every producer ever to use a computer to compose a track has gone off on experimentation at some point or another.
Hell , some tracks are created off parts,sometimes if created simplistically enough they can become full songs.
With that said, your track seems a bit "experimental". Nothing wrong with that at all, and lets face it, unless you are a producer who creates tracks from templates,everything.. starts with being experimental.
The difference here is 1: You knowing the difference between your experimental tracks and full track potentials.
I have heard and read many producers saying they use the 24 hour rule.
If within 24 hours of working the track, if it does not have "Full Track Potential", ditch it.
Personally, I see value in that statement however ,early on I couldnt get rid of anything I did in fear that I wouldnt create anything again..lol.
But as time went on, I realized those tracks that I no longer played/worked on were only experimental tracks and nothing really stood out.
Essentially, using up valuable hard drive space
Now, in the early stages of song creation where I am playing with a beat and/or a melody, if it aint gellin..it's gone.
If there is an area of the track that I DO like, I save that area and catalog it.
This is just an observation. I could be very well wrong however, I have listened to a number of your tracks and know which I would consider to be full track potentials vs experimental. This is one I would chalk up to experimental
