A decent start point overall. Bit samey, could do with more dynamic changes overall.

More incidentals at the points you change the instruments would also help keep the progression flowing along, liked the sounds used for the melodies although pianos are a bit boring for me.
Drums are barely there and get abruptly louder when the extra layer in added or whatever is going on. why not make more interesting ones or use ones that are meant to be subtle rather than using a beat that wants to sound loud but barely cuts through the mix. Maybe more percussion to add a more interesting groove overall.

I would dance to this track if I hear it in a club, at least until around 2min, then I think the listener/dancer will start to feel the need of some kind of variety. The drums are heavy in a loud way which may contribute to the fatigue. IMO, the track need to have a different bass line at some point to generate a sort of musical twist and keep the listener and dancer interested. And overall maybe a more dynamic/less loud mastering, keeping a balance beetween the two. But keep up the good work.

Old Good Looking records releases (the progression sessions mixes are quite a trove if you can find them online).
A lot of Calibres back catalogue would be relevant.
Mav, ICR, Naibu, Synkro, Gatz, Oak and Bop all might be worth a listen as well.


They all have musical elements and differing degrees of complexity across the rest of the elements from Calibre being quite simple in some of his piano based tracks to oak and bops very glitchy vibes with a lot of layers.

Might add more to check out if anything pops into mind.

It's a clean sound, but overall lacking depth and variation with the drums and structure.
Keep going at it, needs some variation and sense of the track building up and taking the listener somewhere. The compression sounds wrong along the whole track on the drums, otherwise tuneful.

Re: [Chill DnB] Rapitops - 290816 [WIP]

I'm still working on implementing some ideas in this thread, but I noticed that the pad sound is barely there.
Muting it made the mix a bit more clear, but I'm no longer sure whether or not it makes the mix sound empty as well (listening fatigue).
Could you people help me out?

Nice clean sound. Feel the drums lack a bit of flow. I'm not a fan of that mid range wobble metallic sounding synth at about 0.51, would maybe be OK if used a bit sparingly but is a bit too much when just constantly going. I think sometimes in general there is a bit too much going on melodically, could do with a bit more space to let it breathe, create more impact with the best bits of the tune and don't overdo it.

The drums can definitely use some work. Either change the whole sample or add some more to the arrangement. OR you can speed up the track a bit. On the melodic side, you have a lot of good ideas here. They all sound good. Sometimes it's better to just stick with 1 or 2 key elements and "feed" it with proper elements that will compliment it in the end.

I like this a lot tho. Great work.

I do agree, the drums are the weakest part of the track.
Thanks for the feedback, appreciated.
