So I was going through some old files yesterday, and found this interesting thing and thought I'd polish it up. It's kind of a throwback to early Planisphere tracks with those massive 3-4 minute ambient breakdowns. The beat/bass balance still isn't right and some things are missing, but it's basically there.

I actually feel the bass is pretty decent and the mix could use some EQ for higher frequency clarity,but that is personal.
Nice and very dreamy. Dig the atmosphere and the ride!

I actually ended up doing only very minor adjustments to make the kick a bit clearer. I'll probably do a beatless version of it too.

this is cool like it. to me something doesnt sound quite right in the low end, the way the kick and bass sit together. is the kick and bass tuned right? to me the bass sounds lke it sits better when it moves up, and away from the root but when it comes back its just not quite sitting right


i like all the incidental sounds that keep it interesting

it does sound a bit sharp. maybe look at the 4k range as this might need to be cut to git rid of some of the sharpness

also maybe you are over cooking the limiting/compression a little

i like this. to me it needs a little bit more (as you said) to keep it interesting. there is not quite enough happening, like some subtle melodic or harmonic changes would be awesome, or some more incidental sounds

bass sounds good to me but could be a bit tighter,maybe some more compression on the bass to keep it tighter, it somehow sounds a little "wooly" although sounds like all bass elements are in key with each other

WIP. it needs more. Im trying to go for less of a song, more of a banger this time which is a little uncharted territory for me. Any thoughts very welcome

your tune sounds wicked. all the synths, pads sound sweet and loving the vocal sample with delays.

what did you make that lead/pad with just before it breaks and what reverb you got on that? real nice


The only one thing it is missing imo is bass, I kept expecting it to kick in but it never came. looks like your kick is peaking at around 100 hz and although it has some sub in it too, its not enough to fill out the bottom end of the tune on its own IMO. Even just a simple one note thing to underpin everything would work. IMO of course

you might try a very slight high cut with a steep curve on the high synths/samples, to make room for the hats. Maybe boost the hats a bit in volume or eq to help them stick out a bit more. IMO

Hey guys,

I've been on an insanely long and grueling hiatus but I'm making a bit of a come back as I've been able to work on some new stuff lately after having a crazy year this past annual. I was downloading some a cappella and decided to give Robin S - Show Me Love a whirl. It came out a lot different than I thought but I think it sounds pretty cool. Not sure how close this sounds to what you're used to hearing from me but I hope you like it.

Cheers & look forward to hearing some of your new stuff,
Jesse

Watup Evolve, long time no see man.
Dig the vibe transitions. Listening closely I hear the different elements you are using in those transitions. I respect that,at the same time I am wondering if it is because I am listening to closely or if it is a minute thing however I am wondering if it isn't a bit to much. The reason I say that is because it kind of got me lost as if it was a continual search for that "sound". Almost seemingly like a song that was a 6 minute mix,which I am unsure if that was a purposely/creative decision to compose/arrange your track but this is how I received it.
I would also check your kick with that sharp higher frequency tone,it is not imo flattering to the kick.
This mix could also use some sub from somewhere be it the Kick or whatever.
First minute to the 02:46 mark is imo the "meat". Techno at heart with a good solid groove. I very much dig those filter changes to but If I could recommend that your automation makes it flow better. There are a lot of cuts that are very noticeable and dries up the mix rather quick. In example, the low pass at :25 comes in REAL fast.
:27 & 1:33 That snare sounds like it's resonating through a cave. I would drag that verb down and hit it with some EQ

These all of course are my opinions and things that I noticed during an extended listen. I know how hiatus work, and it is tough getting back going some times. At any rate, welcome back and look forward to hearing more from you
