[Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

I think this would be classified as Trip-hop, maybe Downtempo? I dunno, help me decide what genre you'd classify this as. For once I actually kind of dig one of my productions. Two things though. The drums, are they too loud? And the bass, is it too low?

Thanks for listening

Re: [Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

Drums maybe a little too loud, but it's really a matter of taste, I think..same goes for the bass..nothing really jumped out at me as being chronically wrong with the track, other than it being too fecking short..length, dude..length..it's important..or so they say.

As for which genre..ya got me there..I haven't a clue, tbh..don't really listen to much of this style usually. How about TripDownHopTempo?

Seriously, I'm leaning towards TripHop, as it sounds a bit "too up" for a downtempo track to my ears..but I could be wrong. Regardless, I'm sure somebody more enlightened will let you know in due course.

All in all, I really liked this as it is..it's just a bit short is all. Nice one.

Re: [Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

Yeah I still can't decide on the drums haha, maybe I'll lower them by like a db.

Yeah length is my biggest fault.. always.. I can never advance tracks and keep them interesting for more than 2 minutes. I'm going to keep trying to advance this one though as I kind of like it.

I've had two people say they didn't think the vocals worked though; I like them. Thoughts on that?

Again, this isn't my usual listening pleasure, so keep that in mind..but regarding the vocals..they seemed to work to me just fine..didn't hear anything there that struck me as a possible issue.

Seems everyone is a critic..and that's good for us as producers of music, as it keeps us aware of how our work is coming across to others..but it's also worth keeping in mind that there has to be a cutoff point, where you pull back and say "thanks, but no thanks..this is how I want it to be" So people will tell you something is wrong, when in reality it's just their own personal taste at work.

Lss..I think it's just fine..the vocals work fine..just focus on trying to make tracks that are a little longer is all.

Re: [Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

Nice track, good vibes!

The sound on 0:28 is interesting and it fits really well with the pitch bend! I like the fact that you are mixing the drums together with acoustic ones at 0:50. I would even say that the rhodes on 1:29 can be a little bit louder.
And as other comments said: the length.... but yeah.

Keep it up!

Re: [Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

Easygoing - could work fine as an interlude
The style is more downbeat than trip-hop, I'd say, as trip-hop is more gloomy usually.

Here's my remix using those vocals, by the way

Yeah I think you're right about the genre man, I think I'll go with that.
And nice remix dude, I really dig it. It's a cool take on it for sure

I do feel like the drums are a touch too loud, and I wish the bass were slightly more present. Could be my headphones though... I love those juicy, soulful vocals. Nice track

Re: [Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

Beautiful song and beautiful production. I love the dripping water at the start. I only listened to the latest version, but the drum and bass levels sound perfect to me.
One thing that surprised me was that the intro contains an irish pipe type melody which works well to set the listener's expectations, but on first listening that was the last I heard of it. On a second listening I think it came in again at approx 1:48, but very quietly and in the bass register?
Only a suggestion, but I think that a subtle re-appearance of the pipes at about that point (and a bass counter-melody that I think you had worked well but could be brought out more) sort of squares the circle and links the whole back to the intro.
Just one question: I assume the vocals were recorded for the song, and weren't simply a sample?
Anyway, great track.
Cheers, DRR

Re: [Trip-hop] Chaotix - My Treasure

Hey man, listened to the track several times over some studio monitors and I really dig it, I feel like the length is fine - depending on what context you'd use it in (an album interlude etc.). Drums may be a bit too loud at some points, but I feel like the volume levels can fluctuate during certain parts of the track to bring more intensity. Bass line fit well into the mix.
Keep doing your style man, I enjoy what I listened to.

Wow, great tune. Love the vibe, and those guitar chords in the background are amazingly handled.

Good work, it all comes together.
