[Breaks / Retrowave] Raksaed - Retrospectrum

Hello IDMF
it's been a while since last login. I don't make as much music as I used to due to a spine problem I'm dealing with. It's still fun when I get chance to do some though. Here's something I made while ago. Not my usual style, as usual
Anyway, sharing your thoguhts would be appreciated

Re: [Breaks / Retrowave] Raksaed - Retrospectrum

I see breaks Im all over it. Nice job,. There's some quality elements in there. I would like to hear a more variation in the production, drums and bassline, some breakdown and rebuild. Keep it at dude.

Beat is not my cup of tea, but all else is super, would be cool to be bit slower, and some subtle beat, 4/4

Re: [Breaks / Retrowave] Raksaed - Retrospectrum

I think the drums could use a little more smack and the bass line a bit more automation. can you parrallel process in your DAW so you can do tuned distortions and automation layers on you bass?

Re: [Breaks / Retrowave] Raksaed - Retrospectrum

Tight. Tight like Tiger. Except that squelchy bit aroun 3:00. I think it is too different too late in the piece. You could center a break more in the middle around that sound to make the piece more cohesive. The bass is as other have mentioned, great. I +1 the slight variation to it though to keep the interest up. I usually put my bass to the master and secondly to an effects bus to tweaking a new layer ontop of the original sound. It sometimes ends up making a non-base sound but one that flows with the bass, which can add a lot of interest too.

Yep!

Give that filter on the bassline some more tweaking, and I'd also vary up the breaks & beats a bit more (aside from those glitchy bits at the end of each phrase).

I second that the percussion could also do with fattening up (more compression/limiting & volume).

Loving the squelchiness on those breakdowns.

digging it big time. The beat is subtle; although I like it that way. There's not much particularly sticking out in this track that I can hear that really bothers me all that much.

Re: [Breaks / Retrowave] Raksaed - Retrospectrum

The bassline is catchy as all hell. I see (or hear) that you gave it precedence within the mix for good reason, however I can't help but feel like if it were boomier and quieter, it could have made a better impact.

I think someone else touched on the drums being a bit compressed (or something to that effect) for their taste, and I'd like to echo that. Other than that and the nonexistent ending, the track / mix rules. I've been listening for the past few days and I'm digging it.

Totally not clickbait this time, I swear

Re: [Breaks / Retrowave] Raksaed - Retrospectrum

This is sick.

Percussion sounds good. Lots of variety. The melody reminds me of the dirty electro house days, which I loved! Low End could be turned up a bit (or deviate it from the melody) cause I'm not hearing much of it but outside of that the mix sounds perfect so I don't know if you want to mess with it too much.

I guess the only other thing I could say is that I was hoping for a breakdown or something to give it a bit more variety but that's a taste thing and it's your track so I'm not going to try and tell you what to do there!

Overall production is solid. Love it.
