Nice groove. A bit short though...

The tempo works, but it feels like there's too much going on all at once

Re: [3/4 Space Trip-Hop] Denial - free thor

It's got a good groove going on, but it sounds very muffled to me. I'd bring the hats/claps forward a bit and maybe add a couple of harsher trebley phrases in there.

Re: [3/4 Space Trip-Hop] Denial - free thor

Nice vibe, the 3/4 rythme is a bit confusing with those sounds. But I like it.
Otherwise like Auto said, a little too much sounds bumping into each other.

Re: [3/4 Space Trip-Hop] Denial - free thor

thanks for the feedback guys

@Brn: I actually cut a bit of treble in the master EQ because it sounded too trebley to me.. i guess thats what i guess for trying to produce on shitty headphones

@Everyone else: i hear what you're saying about it being too busy, i guess i got ambitious. any specific parts where its just too much?

From 55 seconds and onward, I have a hard time knowing what to focus on. They're all pleasant melodies and sounds by themselves, but together, it sounds a bit like a wall of sound. It seems like you couldn't decide which of your instruments you wanted to lead the piece, so you left them all at the forefront. Don't get me wrong, this is a GREAT track, and the odd time signature is actually quite groovy.

Take my advice with a grain of salt (considering I have maybe 1/100th of the experience of most people here), but this is what i would do: I would bring the percussion out a little more, to have a more discernible rhythm for your listeners to follow. Then, I would choose one of the sounds you're using (whichever happens to be your favorite), and have it lead the track while using your other sounds in a more ambient-pad sort of way.

Re: [3/4 Space Trip-Hop] Denial - free thor

that is some great fucking feedback man. specific advice like this is what this forum's all about.. the kind of post i'd make if i was still a decent IDMfer *tear*

the problem that i have with separating the elements of this tune is that the bassline and most of the percussion are from this 1 minute WAV file that i made a while back, and the original Ableton files have since been lost..

thats also the reason why its so hard to make this longer.. i refuse to quantize it and cant get the tempo of the current project to match up right, so i need to painstakingly chop up the clip each time i want to make a loop. theres probably an easy way to do this but i'm retarded.

i hear what you're saying man.. i'll put some more time into the EQ and the levels.

i'll update later if anyone's interested!

Re: [3/4 Space Trip-Hop] Denial - free thor

I kind of agree with M. NExS, but if I had my way I'd automate the volume of the percussion so it's not just being raised, but instead moving in and out of the track. I like it busy - it's like a fairly recent Radiohead b-side (I know you said that about one of my tracks recently, but it's true here). I kind of like that there's no easily discernible 'lead' part.

like at around 1:04-1:12?

the synth that comes in at 0:55 is, sort of, supposed to be the lead, but i guess its more clear to me since i wrote it

which is why feedback like this is so useful, it's about as close as you can get to listening to your own tracks with a fresh set of ears

I think if you carefully separated what you have more over stereo, it might work a bit better.
